Product details and specifications

A Quick Restore (QR) ISO image is used to re-image the software on a StoreOnce appliance to a known good state. It is only used, under guidance by HPE Support, in the unlikely event of an appliance`s root file system becoming corrupted or lost; for example if multiple OS disk failures have occurred.

For multi-node appliances, one failed node in a couplet can be quick restored without data loss if the system has failed over to the second node.



All nodes in a cluster of a multi-node appliance must be running the same software build. If using the QR ISO image it must be the same revision as the current software. HPE recommends that you create new QR media at system installation and whenever the system software is updated.


Supported Software Versions

The following table lists the StoreOnce software versions supported with the StoreOnce B6200, 6500 and 6600 Systems:
