Some of the key features, apart from escalation fixes, are:

  • Support for secure boot enabled Windows 2012 and 2016 servers – completely revamped the DI mini-filter drivers to support both secure boot enabled servers and non-secured boot enabled servers. This was a complex task, as there is almost no documentation available and also dependency on third party vendors like Microsoft for certification.

  • Classification Server Pool: Enhanced the Classification Server deployment, by distributing the load of classification requests among several classification servers, thus making it distributed. These multiple classification server will be part of classification server pool, which will then classify large amount of data on a filer or a share in very less time. This is a critical feature for many customers who are running against a deadline to be GDPR complaint for large amount of data.
  • Support for Veritas Enterprise Vault 12.3 for file governance use cases
  • Enhancing the One-Drive feature and support for One drive Proxy
  • Critical security vulnerability patching on bundled software contained within the application.

In a Rollin Patch (RP) for each major build the code is cumulative meaning that the previous RP plus all the hotfixes or patches attributed to that build are expected to be included in the latest RP.

The best source for information would be the Release Notes which are sourced with each new production build and should include the cumulative improvements, patches and hotfixes since the inception of the Major build which is typically 6.X for reference in this article. Typically it would start with the major build .0 as example 6.0, 5.0, 4.0 for the first release at that version.

 

All current shipping builds patches or RPs are available under the SORT page https://sort.veritas.com/patch/finder by selecting the Product and filtering by the platform and version. Each downloadable link will only contain the new changes specific to that download but the documented version Release Notes will list all of them cumulatively by version. For the references documented in the 6.1.2 (6.1PR2) build scroll down to page 66 in this document.
