Upgrade Phoenix agent and Phoenix CloudCache

Starting October 31st, 2020,  Druva will end support for the Hybrid Workloads agents and Phoenix CloudCache setups that use TLS 1.0. Since the Hybrid Workloads agents with versions older than 4.7.6-47047 and Phoenix CloudCache setups with versions older than 3.7-47047 use TLS 1.0, these agents will not be able to connect to the Phoenix Cloud. To avoid running into issues, upgrade the Hybrid Workloads agents and Phoenix CloudCache setups to the latest available version. For more information on the latest Hybrid Workloads agents, see Release details.

This article provides information on how to upgrade the Hybrid Workloads agents and the Phoenix CloudCache setups.

Important information regarding MS-SQL Server backups and TLS 1.0 support 

If TLS 1.0 is disabled, and you are using TLS 1.1 or TLS 1.2 ensure that SQL Server Native Client driver 11.0 is installed. Since TLS 1.0 and TLS 1.1 protocols are getting deprecated, if the TLS 1.0 protocol is disabled, and you are using TLS 1.1 or TLS 1.2 and the SQL Server Native Client driver is not installed, the backup jobs fail on the Windows server.

You can download the SQL Server Native Client driver for the MS-SQL Server 2012 from the Microsoft Download Center.  

About automatic upgrade of Druva AWS proxy

After you deploy a Druva AWS proxy version 4.8.0 or later, you can upgrade to the latest version automatically from the Management Console.
