Doc Type: Rebase: Bug Fixes and Enhancements
Doc Text:
_rear_ rebased to version 2.0 Updated _rear_ packages that fix several bugs and add various enhancements are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7. Notable changes include: * The `Cyclic Redundancy Check` (CRC) feature is now enabled by default on the XFS file systems. Previously, "rear" ignored this change in behavior, and formatted the */boot* partition with an incompatible UUID flag. This caused the recovery process to fail. With this rebase, "rear" checks for the CRC feature, and properly preserves UUID during recovery. * Support for the `GRUB` and `GRUB2` boot loaders for IBM Power Systems architecture has been added. * Linux capabilities are now preserved if the directive `NETFS_RESTORE_CAPABILITIES` is set to the "y" option in the `/usr/share/rear/conf/default.conf` configuration file. * CIFS credentials are now preserved in rescue image. * `GRUB_SUPERUSER` and `GRUB_RESCUE_PASSWORD` directives have been dropped to avoid possible unexpected behaviour change of the `GRUB2` bootloader in the currently running system. * Documentation has been improved. * Creation of multiple backups have been enabled.
