Contributors netapp-tonacki

See what issues have been fixed in Global File Cache.

17 December 2021 (version 1.2.0)

  • The Configuration UI (Optimus) is enhanced to validate the date field entries while adding pre-population jobs.

  • Pre-population is enhanced to monitor cache utilization and will skip populating if cache usage reaches close to cache cleaner parameters.

  • Removed the hard dependency of the License Management Server (LMS) Service running locally with Policy configuration.

  • The GFC Kernel driver is enhanced to avoid a crash in the SMB Server service in Windows Server 2016/2019.

  • Fixed an exception in the LMS Service.

  • Service Start types for LMS, LMC, and TappN Services are changed from 'Automatic Delayed' to 'Automatic'.

9 June 2021 (version 1.1.0)

  • The Configuration UI now displays the Edge hostname correctly in the Edit Pre-population page.

  • An issue in parsing the json response from the NetApp License subscription server during license registration is fixed.

  • Pre-population (TappN) logs are enhanced to log the file transfer status of all the files.

7 April 2021 (version 1.0.4)

  • A QoS issue has been fixed where QoS parameters were applied to all users instead of just the user who surpassed the limits.

  • NSS credentials are now validated before being applied to the licensing system.

  • Race conditions between the GFC software and certain antivirus software have been fixed.

  • A crash no longer occurs when a locking hierarchy is violated during drop lease operations.

21 March 2021 (version 1.0.3)

  • The NetApp license registration and GFC subscription-based registration is only allowed by the cloud-based License Management Server (LMS). The on-premises LMS should use legacy licensing.

  • The Configuration UI now adds jobs in pre-population when the License Manager Client Service (LMC) uses hostnames instead of IP address for the LMS during configuration.
