Solutions in this patch

Agent Management

Managed by Agent backup policies do not respect the retention policy setting for Microsoft Windows machines, always forcing it to 7 regardless of the value specified.

Cloud Connect Infrastructure

In the environments where the Network Extension Appliance has the same name as the corresponding Tenant, deleting the appliance will also remove tenant’s replicas.

Cloud Connect Replication fails with the “Cannot find an available target” error in vCloud Director environments with multiple clusters due to not searching all available vDC pools for the required vOrg pool.

WAN Acceleration

WAN accelerator may deadlock while transferring an increment with large contiguous set of zeroed segments, making the data transfer appear to slow down dramatically.
