Error description

  • Page 17 planning for client says:
    
    "A maximum of 40 clients are allowed to connect to a FastBack
    Server, and a single
    FastBack Server protects production data up to a maximum size of
    8 TB. As with
    prior releases, the maximum size of a ?repository on disk?
    repository object is 2
    TB. The disk must not be equal to or greater than 2 TB in size."
    
    This remark is incorrect.  It tells the FastBack Server
    repository instead of saying that the product support protected
    disks sized less then 2 TB which are disks of the FB Client
    production server machines.
    Together with the paragraph correction, the FastBack Client 2TB
    disk size limitation notification should be inserted into the
    Instant Restore (recovery) paragraph since the recovery on a
    single disk sized 2 TB and above is not supported as well.
