UPDATE: 1.6.0 has been released, and this topic has been locked.

This is a beta release of version 1.6.0-beta4 intended for testing purposes.

This Beta release contains the new 'store only unique backups' (duplicate backup filtering) mechanism.


See the changelog below for more detailed information.

We test the beta releases as best as possible, but bugs may be present.
For general usage, we recommend customers run current STABLE release.

You can download the beta build here:

Changelog:

Code: Select all

= Version 1.6.0 =
Features:
  Increased default timeouts for more reliable operations on slow devices
  Added support for access disclaimer messages on FortiOS
  Added option to not use SMTP authentication in email notifications settings
  Added option to not check HTTPS cert for Zabbix importer (for example when running Zabbix with a self-signed cert)

  Only unique new backups will be stored (duplicate backup filtering):
    - If a backup retrieved from the device is the same as the last backup already in the system, it will not be stored
    - Backup table now shows a time range for which a backup was valid for, rather than just backup retrieval timestamp
    - This feature makes it much easier to see when a device config changes

  Added support for:
    - Brocade TurboIron
    - Citrix NetScaler
    - Dell Force10 (RTOS)
    - Dell switches (RTOS)

Fixes:
  Fixed comma character not being properly loaded from configuration file, causing issues when used in the DB encryption password
  Fixed NetXMS importer not finding containers if user didn't have access to Infrastructure Services in NetXMS
  Fixed issue where Zabbix importer was not possible to configure - it was expecting an address, but it really needed an URL
  Fixed new devices imported from an importer not being backup up if there were no other devices using the default schedule
  Fixed not logging out a user whose account was removed while he was logged in

  UN-33, UN-253, UN-227, UN-277, UN-304, UN-305, UN-306, UN-307, UN-308
