Version V8, build 12381 (17 August 2018)

VTL and Cloud Replication

Added support for MS Azure Cloud Storage in replicator.
Fix for performance issue that was present in 12146, 12166 builds: VTL write performance was affected by non-buffered file operation mode.
Implemented support for offline pre-seed scenario. If tape backup has been added to cloud storage using offline data transfer service or other methods, tapes can be registered on offline shelf to make them available for restore commands. Use “Restore from Cloud” dialog, select tapes and check “Add tape record from cloud to shelf without downloading it” option.

Core

Notifications: Event ID code added to message string for notifications to text file.

Fix for processing unfinished iSCSI Tasks: when iSCSI session terminates in non-graceful way, last commands could remain unprocessed, preventing session termination. These sessions prevent the service from correct shutdown with log message like “Waiting for 5 seconds for clean up to complete (XX refs)..”.

Fix for operating with ProxMox Virtual Environment. Fixed processing of WRITE_SAME16 SCSI command. StarWind Service was crashing on virtual disk initialization when used with ProxMox VE and VAAI commands enabled.
