User-added image


Updated OS Packages for New Image Deployments

  • Newly deployed images contain the latest CentOS 6.8 packages.  


License Caching

  • The appliance license is now cached for 24 hours to prevent replication failures which could be caused by communication problems with the license servers.



  • In addition to the regular hourly schedule, retention is now processed after each replication to ensure cloud data is updated as soon as possible.


Support Changes

  • To better integrate Boomerang Support with the Unitrends Support ecosystem, we're retiring the Zendesk support widget. The Boomerang Support menu has been updated with a new Support page which contains links for several new forms of support.  If SMTP is configured email tickets can be created directly from the Support page.
Support page
  • We've reviewed the hyperlinks throughout the product to ensure they are working and up to date.
