What's New

This release contains the following new feature or enhancement:

  • More secure connections to Centralized Log: Configuration Server can now use Single or Mutual TLS to secure a connection to the Message Server designated for the Centralized Log. Refer to the Secure Network Logging Deployment Procedure for more information and instructions for setting up this connection.

Resolved Issues

This release contains the following resolved issues:

On the Linux platform, you can now use command-line utilities to successfully run init_multi_xxx.sql scripts when initializing a single-language database in an environment with LANG=en_US.<any encoding other then UTF-8> (which you must set if you are using single-language deployments for national languages). Previously, you might have experienced errors such as SP2-0734: unknown command beginning "<feff>/* ====..." - rest of line ignored when executing on Oracle because UTF-8 had been specified as encoding for this script. Now, scripts are provided in full compliance with the ASCII file format. (MFWK-17714)

Configuration Server now successfully connects to Message Server at startup regardless of the amount of data it has to read and apply from the Configuration Database during the startup. Previously, in some cases when startup time was significant, Configuration Server sometimes did not attempt the connection at startup, and instead required the user to make any changes in the affected Configuration Server object before it tried to connect. (MFWK-17166)
