Data Backup and Recovery Discussions
We're using Snapmgr in 7mode. Snapcenter is not supported so we can 1. uninstall that KB, which is not an option or 2. look at another backup software. Thats not a "solution" netapp...
A Bug has been opened to address this issue . NetApp Engineering is actively working to get a workaround/solution
Please subscribe to this bug
Until a workaround/ solution is identified, only if you are able to (after assessing the security needs of your systems) , we recommend you to roll back the patch.
Here is the kb that documents
Is there currently an issue with that bug page?, I am unable to load it here, it just shows loading...
We have reviewed our environment and we are unable to roll back the latest patch for security reasons.
We also have big issues with SnapManager 7.2.0
Can't roll back the patch either for the same reason (security).
Will need a solution pretty soon, otherwise we will go for another vendors product.
We had exactly the same situation - no SME backups were possible since the security patch was installed.
Deinstallation of KB5001779 was possible (Exchange 2016 CU20) AND a solution for this issue: SME backups now are running fine again!
Of course running Exchange without this security patch is risky and thereford not a good solution - but running without backup is not aceptable at all.
We will migrate to SnapCenter as soon as possible.

I'd rather use crash-consistent snapshots than expose the org to a sev 9.8 RCE.
