ASU Version 5.1B-3 software

The ASU Version 5.1B-3 kit provides enhancements and corrections for problems found in the ASU Version 5.1B-2 software, including ECO1 and in earlier versions of the ASU software.

Some of the enhancements and corrections in the ASU Version 5.1B-3 kit:

  • The ASU server is now able to notify clients of changes made by UNIX programs and commands.
  • The ASU server now supports mailslot messages sent to the cluster alias IP address.
  • ASU now supports locales with an expanding character set such as the UTF-8 codeset, for example, fi_FI.UTF-8 or ja_JP.UTF-8, for file names and pathnames.
  • Interoperability between smbfs on a Linux client and the ASU server has been improved.
  • The elfread command has been enhanced with three new options for managing ASU event log settings.
  • A new registry parameter, MemberUseAnyDC, can improve connection response time by allowing an ASU member server to use any available domain controller for validating authentication requests.
  • Two new lanman.ini parameters, logunixpasswordchgsuccess and logunixpasswordchgfailure, have been added under the [lmxserver] section to control the logging of UNIX password changes by the ASDUPASS utility and also by the ASU server when the SyncUnixPassword registry entry is enabled.
  • The pccheck client tool has been enhanced with a new option, -escalate, to collect the system configuration of Windows NT systems. The files are collected in compressed form, as a cab file, in the pccheck directory.

See the ASU Version 5.1B-3 Release Notes for a complete list of new features, functionality, and corrected problems.

You can Install the ASU Version 5.1B-3 software on a system running the Tru64 UNIX Version 4.0F or higher operating system software. The ASU Version 5.1B-3 software can be used to

  • Install the ASU software on a Tru64 UNIX system for the first time.
  • Upgrade previous versions of the ASU software.
