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:
- Configuration Database Monitoring Scripts can now be run from the command line.
- HA Configuration Servers can now be migrated from 8.1.3 to 8.5.101 without loss of backup functionality, if they are using the same 8.1.1 Configuration Database.
This release contains the following resolved issues:
When Configuration Server is connected directly to the Configuration Database (dbthread=true), another client connecting to the internal port used for communication between Configuration Server and its database client processes might cause an exception that forces the database client to disconnect. With this version, the database client stays connected when an exception is received on the internal port from any client other than the database client. (MFWK-18067)
HA Configuration Servers that are configured to access the database directly (dbthread=true) now handle future LCA requests properly, even after they experience several cycles of disconnecting from, and reconnecting to, their databases. Previously in this scenario, the servers sometimes ended up ignoring LCA requests (for example, ignoring a switchover request sent by LCA from Solution Control Server). (MFWK-18034)
No special procedure is required to upgrade to release 8.5.101.01.
