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 Server Proxy management port support: You can now specify a default management port (TCP/IP port) on Configuration Server Proxy that management software uses to monitor and control the operation of the proxy server. If the port not specified, management agents cannot monitor and control the operation of Configuration Server Proxy. You cannot set this option to the value specified for the port option. To specify this port, use the following new configuration option in the [csproxy] section of the Configuration Server Proxy Application object.
Default Value: No default value
Valid Values: Any valid TCP/IP port
Changes Take Effect: After restart
Specifies the TCP/IP port that management software uses to monitor and control the operation of Configuration Server Proxy. If not specified, management agents cannot monitor and control the operation of Configuration Server Proxy. You cannot set this option to the value specified for the port option.
The default management ports specified by the management-port options in Configuration Server and Configuration Server Proxy Application objects open just after the components are initialized and just before the following log messages are generated:
- 21-22171 Master Configuration Server is fully operational in primary mode
- 21-22172 Master Configuration Server is fully synchronized in backup mode
- 21-22173 Proxy Configuration Server is fully synchronized with master server
- Enhanced interoperability between Configuration Server Proxy 8.5 and Configuration Server 8.1.3 during migration: Configuration Server Proxy 8.5, in both primary and backup mode, can, during migration, start and operate against Configuration Server 8.1.3. The proxy server can add, update, and modify the data as required.
This release contains the following resolved issues:
If an error occurs on the connection between the backup Configuration Server and the Configuration Database while the backup server is switching to primary mode, the backup Configuration Server now completes the switchover and properly reloads the data. Previously in this scenario, the switch to primary mode was successful but the data was sometimes not loaded correctly, leaving the user with a clean (i.e. empty) data set. This situation sometimes occurred when, for example, the connection to the database was lost prior to the switchover, but the connection loss was not detected. (MFWK-18407)
A backup Configuration Server Proxy now reconnects properly to the primary proxy server after it loses connection to both the master Configuration Server, from which it is waiting to retrieve data, and the primary proxy server at the same time. Previously in this scenario, the backup proxy server would not try to reconnect to its primary proxy server. (MFWK-18397)
No special procedure is required to upgrade to release 8.5.101.08.
