Issue



User is able to restore backed up files using drag-n-drop on Vista machine even if corresponding restore right is not granted for the machine.


Environment



Applies to the Recovery Solution Agent version 6.2.2801 running on Vista operating system (any edition).


Cause



Broken logic in the RS shell extension code.


Solution



Attached are the archived Data1.cab packages (both 32 and 64 bit versions) that should replace RS Agent installation packages on the NS and RS servers in following locations:

NS Server box, 32 bit RSA package:
\Program Files\Altiris\Notification Server\NSCap\Bin\Win32\X86\Recovery Agent Package

NS Server box, 64 bit RSA package:
\Program Files\Altiris\Notification Server\NSCap\Bin\Win32\X86\Recovery Agent Package x64

RS Server box, 32 bit package:
\Program Files\Altiris\Recovery Solution\Server\Agent\Install
\Program Files\Altiris\Recovery Solution\Server\Agent\Package

This is cunulative hotfix package containing all the known client side fixes that have been discovered for the date after 6.2.2801 has been released. In addition to those it contains fixed RSA shell extension rnsmsshl.dll (file version 6.20.2801.145423 or 6.20.2801.45423)

IMPORTANT!

After packages are updated administator should update distribution points for the replaced packages in the NS Console. In order to do that please go to RS Package page in the NS Console then select 'Update distribution points' and hit 'Apply'.

Existing RS Agent can be reinstalled using 'RS Reinstall' policy (if needed).
