Error description

  • A user is able to perform a secure-restore on the appliance only
    if the firmware level of the backup files and the current
    firmware level on the appliance match exactly to the fixpack
    level. The current approach to checking the firmware
    version string does not allow the user to perform a
    secure-restore on an appliance running a debug build of the
    same fixpack level. This is due to the fact that the version
    string of the debug build will contain a suffix, e.g. 5.0.0.5ky,
     which will not match the firmware level on which the backup was
     created, e.g. 5.0.0.5.
