  If you are using earlier versions, upgrade to
Build 5300

Compliance Policies

  • In compliance rule definition, option to specify the beginning and the end of the required configuration blocks for selective compliance check. This new feature will help check the required configuration blocks for compliance to the defined criteria. Compliance results for every single interface block will be reported individually, in addition to a unified compliance report for the entire configuration by doing 'AND' of all the individual results.
  • Support for filtered view of compliance check results. The result view can be filtered based on all compliant rules or all violations.

Switch Port Mapping

  • Option to create scheduled tasks to periodically scan the switches being managed by DeviceExpert and report the the list of devices connected to each port of the managed switch.
  • Option to generate PDF reports out of the switch port mapping results

Re-branding Support

  • Support for rebranding DeviceExpert web-interface. You can replace the product-specific names and logos with your own details

New Device Models & Vendors

  • Fortinet Virtual Domain
  • Vanguard devices
  • Alaxala 3600, Alaxala 1230
  • Allied Telesis

Hardware Interface Population

  • The hardware interface details of Alaxala devices are now populated in the device details page

Changes / Bug Fixes

  • Earlier, when the time gap between two successive configuration changes was less than two minutes, backup through real-time change detection was not triggered for the second time within that two minute. This is now relaxed and DeviceExpert will trigger backups successively.
  • Earlier, configuration backup through SSH was not working for Cisco VPN Concentrators, Cisco Content Switches & Dell PowerConnect switches. This is now fixed
  • During every configuration backup, the header of Extreme devices undergo a change. DeviceExpert wrongly considered the header change as configuration change and kept backing up and incrementing versions. This is now fixed by ignoring header information while identifying configuration difference.
  • Earlier, Power Users had the privilege to review and approve the configuration changes made by Operators on any device, if the administrator had designated the Power User as an 'Approving Authority'. Now, even if the Power Users had been designated as 'Approving Authorities', they will be able to approve the changes pertaining to the devices that are already allotted to them only and not of other devices.
  • Power Users will not have the privilege to associate compliance policies to devices and vice-versa.
  • Earlier, backup & upload of startup configuration for D-Link DGS 3600 series was not supported, which is supported now.
DeviceExpert Build 5210

New Features / Enhancements

Download DeviceExpert Full Build 5210
  If you are using earlier versions, upgrade to
Build 5210

Earlier, information on 'who changed' the configuration was captured only when real-time change detection was enabled. Now, the information is captured from 'configuration header' for Cisco devices.

Earlier, Power Users had the privilege to review and approve the configuration changes made by any Operator on any device. Now, 'Administrator' will assign 'Approving Authorities' for every Operator. Only those Power Users who have been designated as approving authorities, will have the privilege to approve the changes made by the respective Operators. However, all users with the role 'Administrator' will have the permission to approve the changes whether they are designated as approving authorities or not. But, they will receive email notification only if they are designated as approving authorities.

Real-time change detection support is extended to Bluecoat devices.

Earlier, backup and upload of startup configuration was not supported for D-Link DGS devices. This is now supported

New Device Models Support

    Cisco IOS - XR

    Cisco Wide Area Application Service (WAAS)

    Cisco Integrated Services Router (ISR) and

    Juniper M-Series Devices

New Vendors Support

    H3C

    Yamaha Devices ( RT and RTX series)

Changes / Bug Fixes

Earlier, there were issues in connecting to devices via SSH v1. This has been fixed.

Earlier, when a scheduled task for configuration backup was created for a device whose configuration was not backedup at least once prior to creating the schedule, there were issues in executing the schedule. This has been fixed.

Earlier, there was no provision to directly delete synchronization schedule created for synchronizing Activity Directory user database with DeviceExpert. Now, separate provision has been made for deleting it.

Earlier, when the DNS name of the host where DeviceExpert is running was improper, a blank page appeared when connecting the web-interface. This has been fixed.

During the device discovery or device addition process, device names might not get recorded correctly due to DNS issues. To correct the names, provision was given to edit and update the host names in bulk. Earlier, there were some issues in editing the host names. This has been fixed.

The default inactivity timeout for DeviceExpert web-interface has been changed from 30 minutes to four hours. Timeout value is configurable.

DeviceExpert Build 5200

New Features / Enhancements

SNMP v3 Support: DeviceExpert now supports SNMP v3 for device discovery, configuration retrieval for Cisco devices and for switch-port mapping functionality.This allows leveraging the additional security measures of SNMP v3.

Enhancements have been made to the forwarded syslog messages listening feature with provision to specify the list of IP addresses from where syslog messages would be forwarded to DeviceExpert for real-time change detection. Previously, DeviceExpert expected the syslog message to come directly from the devices that undergo configuration change. With this new feature, syslog messages which get forwarded from a common syslog server (complying to RFC 3164 ) can also be used to detect configuration changes in real-time.

For Netscreen devices, real-time change detection is now done based on more conditions. For example, earlier, cases like forced telnet logout were not considered for change detection. Now, more such conditions are considered.

SSH-based configuration retrieval support is now extended to Cisco ASA and Nortel Passport devices.

New OS Support:  DeviceExpert now runs on Windows XP 64 bit, Windows 2008 Server, CentOS and Suse Linux

Support for New Device Vendors & Models: Avaya, UTM-1 Edge X version 7.5.55x, Lambda Driver 800, Dax Devices, Cisco ACE Module, Cisco Wide Area Application Services Software (WAAS), Cisco IOS XR 

Changes

For real-time change detection, when syslog messages were sent from devices, DeviceExpert identified the changes only when the exact IP of the device was present. This made real-time change detection not working in devices having multiple interfaces where the message came randomly from one of the interfaces. Now, DeviceExpert will look into the interface table of the device and consider all the interfaces.

A few models of Enterasys devices expect carriage return (Ctrl+Y) for logging in. Those type of devices are supported now.

Bug Fixes

Earlier, SSH-based configuration retrieval was not working with Foundry, Extreme and Enterasys devices. It is now fixed.

Earlier, when the entries in Configuration Changes report and Configuration Change Trend report spanned over more than one page, the entries after the first page were not visible. This issue has now been fixed.

In Nortel Baystack devices, configuration retrieval failed due to an issue in populating the hardware properties of the device. This issue has been fixed.

In scheduled configuration backup, the hardware properties of the devices were not updated. This issue has now been fixed.

Earlier, for Aruba devices, there were issues in populating the hardware details. This has been fixed.

In Cisco WLAN controller, configuration backup through TELNET-TFTP did not work. This has been fixed.

Earlier, when generating Configuration Change report as PDF, some entries were missing. This issue has been fixed.

In Widows 2003 and Vista, DeviceExpert port check tool showed wrong port status for Syslog service. This has now been fixed.

DeviceExpert Build 5110

New Features / Enhancements

 
  • Support for retrieving the configurations of Netscreen firewalls through SSH or TELNET without using TFTP
  • Switch Port Mapper: New functionality, which identifies the list of devices connected to each port of the managed switch. This eliminates the need for manually maintaining a record on port details and connected devices. 
  • Provision for editing and updating host names of devices in bulk. During the device discovery or device addition process, device names might not get recorded correctly due to DNS issues. This can be corrected later by updating hostnames in bulk by providing the list of host names in a standard flat file
  • Provision to listen for syslog messages from a central syslog server for use in real-time change detection. Previously, DeviceExpert expected the syslog message to come directly from the devices that undergo configuration change. With this new feature, syslog messages which get forwarded from a common syslog server (complying to RFC 3164 ) can also be used to detect configuration changes in real-time
  • Support for new device vendors & models - Cisco WLAN controller, Nortel Networks Layer 2-3 GbE Switch Module, Brocade 200E, Radware Web Server Director Pro AS, many Enterasys models
  • Support for Nortel Baystack Switch which can login to command line mode directly

Changes

  • Earlier, the execution output of custom templates were visible to all users.
