  • [ABR-136113] Recovering from a backup of a virtual machine with SAS disks creates a virtual machine with IDE disks.
  • [ABR-127009] Creating a managed vault without encryption and deduplication fails. The following errors appear: "Failed to add vault", "The vaults are not initialized yet. Please try again later after the storage node is completely initialized."
