Configuration Server 8.5.x Release Notes
|Release Date||Release Type||Restrictions||AIX||Linux||Solaris||Windows|
This release contains the following new features and enhancements:
- You can now configure Configuration Server or Configuration Server Proxy to perform case-insensitive searches to identify Person objects authorized by the Kerberos ticket. If more than one user object is identified, those users are not authenticated and an error is generated. This feature uses the new ignore-case-username configuration option, and is especially relevant if you are using Microsoft Windows Active Directory as the Key Distribution Center. This feature and its new option are described in the detail in the Kerberos page of the Framework External Authentication Reference Manual.
- Support for MS SQL Server 2014 database. See the Supported Operating Environment: Framework page for more detailed information and a list of all supported databases.
This release contains the following resolved issue:
Configuration Server now logs the actual type of authentication used. Previously, an incorrect type was sometimes logged. (MFWK-17096)
