Replibit – Replibit Release Notes for 8.1.1
This is a Hotfix release. The primary purpose of this release is to address several edge-case issues with the Resumable Replication Engine to increase reliability.
Several enhancements were also added to improve telemetry, fix issues preventing upgrades from 7.x to 8.x, and other bug fixes
- Please verify that Enable Auto Update is Enabled on the Settings -> Update Manager page on each of your Replibit devices.
- It is also recommended that you Enable Auto-Enable Remote Assist When Upgrading so that remote access will be available to our Development team in the event that they need to troubleshoot your upgrade.
- Resumable Replication utilizes a new Vault Transfer Service, VT2, which uses a different network port number. Please adjust the firewall settings for any self hosted vault to allow incoming connections on TCP port 9081.
