Release Notes for:

Neverfail Heartbeat V5.0.2

New Features

  • SQL Server Application Module - Neverfail Heartbeat V5.0.2 contains a new version of the SQL Server Application Module, incorporating several different enhancements.  These enhancements correct issues with the filter discovery process, and improve the handling of the Distributed Transaction Coordinator service when stopping Replication, and during a Switchover.  These issues were intermittent, and dependent upon the precise configuration of the protected SQL Server instance(s) and the host server, but may have affected some deployments of Neverfail for SQL Server in the past.

Changed Features


Issues Fixed

  • Setup - V5.0.2 of Neverfail Heartbeat corrects an issue with Setup utility, whereby obsolete version information was read from the Neverfail change log file during the installation of an AM(X).  In certain configurations of Heartbeat, particularly where systems had been upgraded repeatedly from V4.6.x releases, the deployment of an AM(X) could fail even where that AM(X) was compatible with the current installed Heartbeat version, because Setup was reading older version information from the change log.
