As you may know, Quest recently released a new version of Rapid Recovery, v18.104.22.168.
This updated version is owned by Quest (no longer a Dell Product). It is to prepare users for the upcoming Rapid Recovery 7 which is slated to be released this fall.
At Axcient, our technical team carefully reviews and tests all new releases of software before certifying them for use in our cloud. This ensures we deliver a consistently stable and fast solution. We have now certified this latest version for use in our datacenters.
If you decide to use the LMU (Local Mount Utility) to access your target core data, you will need to install the patch below after the LMU is installed. This patch will only work for v22.214.171.124.
If you are using a prior version to access a target core, please open a ticket to obtain the patch. Please keep in mind that this patch is only available for versions 126.96.36.199 and 188.8.131.52. There is no patch for any other versions of RR6. Versions 5.4.x are not affected by this bug.

Be sure to check out the Rapid Recovery Product Support page to find solution articles, tips and tricks, tutorials, documentation, notifications, life cycle tables, training, and a product user forum.
Important Notice: Due to Quest's recent divestiture from Dell Technologies, they are required to retire any Dell branded software from their support Portal. This means that all software downloads and technical documentation for Rapid Recovery prior to version 6.1.2 will be removed from the Support Portal after November 1, 2017.
Please download any older versions now that you may need for your future use. Quest has confirmed that any existing KB's branded with Dell info will be replaced with Quest's information, so older KB's will continue to remain available under the new branding.
