Error description

  • Using FastBack Linux Client, the incremental delta block
    snapshot is initiated once after Linux operating system is
    shutdown and restarted even if it is done gracefully.  Beginning
     with FastBack 6.1, new function named "Incremental Forever" is
    supported so that FastBack Client can start the incremental
    snapshot after the operating system is shutdown and restarted
    gracefully.   However, the function is supported only on Windows
     platform.  FastBack Linux client doesn't support "Incremental
    Forever."
    
    Document is needed to clarify FastBack Linux Client doesn't
    support "Incremental Forever."
    
    Tivoli Storage Manager Versions affected:
    FastBack Client 6.1.x for all supported Linux platforms
    
    Additional Keywords:
    differenctial snapshot, check point snapshot, reboot
    
    Additional L2 info:
    None
    
    Initial Impact:
