Java

This article applies to:

  • BackupAgent

Problem

When starting the Java client the error message "The old Java SE 6-Runtime needs to be installed" is displayed.

Cause

Yosemite requires the full JDK to be installed. This is not required for BackupAgent, but a limitation imposed by Java's packaging for the JRE.

Solution

Acronis Catalog Browser Service can't start after Java update.

This article describes how to replace Java SE with OpenJDK 8 (Open source Java project) for ElasticSearch service which is used by Acronis Catalog service.

 Version 8 of OpenJDK can be downloaded from https://adoptopenjdk.net/
