Message Server 8.5.x Release Notes
|Release Date||Release Type||Restrictions||AIX||Linux||Solaris||Windows|
This release contains the following new feature or enhancement:
- Message Server can now use Windows Authentication to access an MS SQL Log Database. To implement this, refer to step 3 of Deploying Message Server.
This release contains the following resolved issues:
When Message Server is connected directly to the Log Database (dbthread=true), another client connecting to the internal port used for communication between Message 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-18142)
HA Message Servers that are configured to access the Log 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-16648)
No special procedure is required to upgrade to release 18.104.22.168.
