Released flexVDI agent 3.1.7

Fixes a bug in the creation of flexvdi manager that causes flexvdi manager to get a wrong clock time from the hardware clock when it is started, if the flexVDI Host is not configured in UTC.

The fix will take effect after updating the package, the next time flexVDI manager is started.

The new release can be updated executing in the flexVDI hosts:

# yum -y update flexvdi-agent

Released flexVDI manager 3.1.4

Changes since 3.1.3

  • Includes support for LDAPS protocol (LDAP over TLS/SSL). Instructions for configuring flexVDI manager to trust additional CA’s or server certificates is available at https://docs.flexvdi.com/display/V31/Authenticating+users+with+LDAPS
  • Port 7777 is now reserved and, flexVDI does not try to use it for spice connection to guest virtual machines. This port is used by default by the OCFS2 file system, which is usually used by flexVDI hosts. This number can be changed setting the value of “flexvdi.host_reserved.port” in /flexvdi/external/manager/flexvdi.conf.

 

flexVDI manager is available for update running flexvdi-config command on the host where the current manager is running. Instructions are available here. Also it can be manually downloaded from portal.flexvdi.com, for servers not connected to the internet.
