ASU Version 5.1B ECO1 software

This ECO1 kit provides enhancements and corrections for problems found in the ASU Version 5.1B software, and in earlier versions of the ASU software.

Some of the corrections in ASU Version 5.1B ECO1 kit:

  • Many ASU logon problems (for example, "cannot find domain controller") can be resolved through the setting of the new "ccmsgtodcname" lanman.ini parameter to "no".
  • Roaming profiles in Windows XP ® can now be saved if UseUnixGroups is selected.
  • Windows 2000 ® users can now access a Microsoft Excel 2000 ® document with a shared workbook in an ASU share.
  • Printer shares can now be configured using an “extra listen name” as the server name
  • Files with names beginning with “.” can be treated as “hidden” files and not displayed.
  • UNIX file or directory permissions can be automatically updated whenever a Windows NT ® Access Control List is created or updated through use of the SyncUnixPerms registry entry. In addition, Windows NT ® groups can be mapped to UNIX groups.
  • The ASU server now automatically disconnects null sessions to inactive clients after a default time of 5 minutes (configurable).

See the ASU Version 5.1B ECO1 Release Notes for a complete list of new features, functionality, and corrected problems. You install the ASU Version 5.1B ECO1 software on a system running the Tru64 UNIX Version 4.0F or higher operating system software. You can use the ASU Version 5.1B ECO1 software to

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

Note: You can no longer directly upgrade PATHWORKS for DIGITAL UNIX (Advanced Server) to ASU. See the ASU Version 5.1A ECO1 Release Notes for information on how to upgrade PATHWORKS for DIGITAL UNIX (Advanced Server) to ASU.
