Limitations

  1. The automatic software update feature in the client machine checks for new updates available in the configured update server [backup server] every 1 hour and this schedule is not configurable.

  2. The automatic software update will download and update the latest build only if there is no backup/restore/delete activity at the client side.

  3. If there exists any application for intrusion detection [such as Zone Alarm], the Vembu BDR application may not start automatically after auto upgrading to the latest version. You need to manually start Vembu BDR application.
