Neverfail Workspaces v3.3 - Release Notes

Follow

Summary

This Knowledge base article provides information about the 3.3 release of Neverfail Workspaces and all subsequent updates to this release.

Neverfail Workspaces v3.3.4

What's New

Bugfixes

  • WS-4885 - MAJOR: - Unable to detect when a VM had been migrated from one Cloud to another. 
    • RESOLUTION: Workspaces is now able to detect when a VM has been migrated from one cloud to another. If a VM has been detected, it will now be tagged as migrated and an alert will be thrown.
  • WS-5227 - MAJOR: Some messages may not be dispatched to requested target connector in cases where another Thread is replaying unhandled messages. This would cause the connector to be marked as down.
    • RESOLUTION:  Unhandled messages will no longer cause the Connector handling the task to be marked down.
  • WS-5281 - CRITICAL: LDAP comms may get stuck when closing the SSL Socket. This would cause any LDAP queries to not return values, thus marking the connector as down.  
    • RESOLUTION: Assign a socket_timeout to any Socket created for the purpose of communicating with LDAP. This should allow waitForClose to return, and the SSLSocket itself to clean itself up as best it can. LDAP comms such as list groups for a user will no longer cause a connector to be marked down.
  • WS-5338 - MAJOR: Record_name is not being populated in the audit log. This field is for storing a denormalized view of the resource in case it is deleted.
    • RESOLUTION: Fixed the population of the field and backfill all audit_log entries from log_item.description.

Neverfail Workspaces v3.3

Major New Features 

Configurable Windows Activation

Users are now able to enter a Windows activation key for Windows 2012 R2 and 2016 server or define a KMS Server to handle activation. Alerts are generated for Windows Servers that are not activated.

In previous versions, the Windows activation key was supplied by Neverfail. In the new version, the users are able to supply their own Windows activation key. This is now available in the Cloud->Settings.

Delete Guest Resiliency

Improvements have been made in deletion of a VM or Template. The "Delete Guest" and "Delete a Goldimage" workflow will now handle cases where the VM or template has been deleted.

In previous versions, if the VM or template was deleted from the hypervisor, the workflow would fail.

Publication Status Management Improvements

Workspaces has improved the detection of when apps need to be published.

In previous versions, when an app was moved from authorized to published, Workspaces would fail to recognize the app needed to be published.

Better RD Session Tracking

Workspaces has improved the tracking of user's session when an app is launched or exited.

In previous versions, when the app was exited, Workspaces reported that the user's session was still active on the Workspaces dashboard.

Install Mode Resiliency

Improvements have been made on cancelling a software installation. 

In previous versions, if the (Remove DHCP lease) workflow failed because Workspace does not have a record of the DHCP address assigned; it will now skip the workflow.

Allow VM Creation at Cloud Level

Users are now able to set the network and domain on a cloud level VM. An MSP may have multiple network and domains registered. However, instead of using the default network and domain, users can now select any network or domain defined by the service provider. In previous versions, the MSP could only the defaulted.
