The specifications from AIP 4.x to AIP2018SP1 are as follows.
ActiveImage Protector Linux Edition initializes the disks recognized as uninitialized at the following timings.
In the event that a connected disk is used as RAW device and unpartitioned, the data in the first sector may be changed as a result of initialization processing.
The disks as such need to be partitioned so that by allocating a partition to RAW device, you should be able to avoid data loss from the first sector.
- When "aipcontrol diskinfo" command is executed.
- When backup task is started.
- When Restore Image wizard is launched.
- When GUI is launched.
This initialization may make it impossible to refer to the disk in a specific system.
The specification has been changed so as not to initialize in AIP2018SP2 or later.
If you want to use the disk in an uninitialized, use AIP2018SP2 or later.
