Former release

Important changes

Attention: Important Changes

Since version the EOL for FULL/DIFF/INCR backups is only applied to original savesets not to migrated ones!

Deleting a DISK medium removes saveset files from disk

Until SEP sesam version 4.0.2 saveset files on disk had to be removed manually after deleting media with the GUI. Now all related files and directories are deleted by SEP sesam.

Disk store instead of DISK_HARD is created during installation

For self testing Sesam has created a DISK_HARD media pool. Now new data store backup medium is used.

Backup ends successful even if a further VSS volume disappeared during backup!
If the VSS Writer destroyed one volume snapshot this was not noticed by the SBC program. Fixed: v4.0.3.20
Migration of savesets where backup source includes special characters (&,*[,]...) interpreted by shell fails
Saveset information, which includes original backup source is not quoted correctly leading to a syntax error form shell or cmd.exe

Discontinued SEP sesam Server support

SEP sesam Server package installation and support is no longer offered on the following systems:

  • Windows 2000

This does not affect SEP sesam Client packages. For a definitive list of supported SEP sesam Clients please see SEP sesam Support Matrix.

New supported systems

End of maintenance announcement for older SEP sesam versions

  • Maintenance for SEP sesam version 3.6 will end on June 30th, 2012.
  • Maintenance for SEP sesam version 3.4 has been ended on December 31st, 2010.
  • Maintenance for SEP sesam version 3.0 has been ended on December 31st, 2009.

This does not affect SEP sesam Client packages for which there are no newer versions available.

New Features

Data Store

This is a new concept for backup to disk. Instead of using disk media like tapes, data is written into a single file. See "How to use DataStore".


  • Complete redesign of client browser


  • Successfully restarted backups aren't offered in the Restart backups dialog any more.
  • Optimized RMI server access to speed up GUI access over slow network connections


Interfaces with PowerShell Scripts

The use of Microsoft Windows PowerShell scripts (*.ps1) is possible. So instead of Windows command scripts (*.cmd) the more powerful Microsoft Windows PowerShell command line shell and scripting language is usable. PS1 templates for sm_notify, sm_alarm, sm_disaster, sbc_pre, sbc_post, sbc_restore_pre and sbc_restore_post are distributed with version 4.0.

Novell Services

  • Cluster file systems can be selected as backup source with the GUI


VMware vSphere

Support for the new vStorage API backup interface. See Setup Manual for vSphere

Citrix XEN

Backup of host system and meta database

XenServer Backup

Microsoft Hyper-V

Online backup of Microsoft Hyper-V machines

Hyper-V Backup

Microsoft Office SharePoint Server

The Microsoft Office SharePoint Server (MOSS) is supported with 2 new task types:

  • SharePoint Server - to store the server components data,
  • SharePoint Sites - to store the site collections.

SharePoint Server backs up the SharePoint Server components data and SharePoint Sites backs up site collections with documents.

Microsoft Exchange Server 2010

To support the Microsoft Exchange Server 2010 and the backup of replicated Exchange Server 2010 databases (which may be stored in a clustered Exchange Server 2010 environment via Database Availability Groups (DAG)) the new task types 'Exchange Server 2010' and 'Exchange Server DAG' are available.

  • Exchange Server 2010 - to back up the databases which are mounted on the given server,
  • Exchange Server DAG - to back up the Exchange Server 2010 databases that are replicated via DAG.

With 'Exchange Server DAG' even the data from a remote Exchange Server 2010 can be backed up on a separate host which is a member of the DAG and holds a replica of the databases.


The new task type 'Exchange Server 2010' is usable for Exchange Server 2007 as well. Therefore since version 4.0.2 the task type is renamed to 'Exchange Server' and the older one (supporting Exchange Server 2003) is renamed to 'Exchange Server 2003'!


UUID for savesets

Saveset name now includes an additional unique part so savesets from different SEP sesam installations can be merged into one SEP sesam database.


You will find complete CVS change reports here.


Attention: v4.0.3.31 was not released. See Release Notes 4.0.5 for current SEP sesam version.
