panagenda is proud to announce this new release of iDNA Applications. Whether you’re in a Notes/Domino modernization or migration project, iDNA gives you the knowledge to deliver the most difficult projects efficiently, on time and on budget. This new version is a maintenance release.
IMPORTANT Given the recent vulnerabilities created all over the IT world and the subsequent library updates that were necessary to address these issues, we would like to remind all our customers to apply a foundation of security and safety measures when using our virtual appliances.
A simple and short but important list of boxes to check:
- Enable automatic Linux package updates (at least security fixes)
- Change default password for Linux root user
- Change default password for Web config user
- Change default password for VNC Server connections
We provide our appliances with root access to make it easy to apply and adhere to your company's security policies for e.g. password quality, retention, etc. We strongly urge you to implement these guidelines. Not only vulnerabilities that make the news can pose a significant security threat.
Metabase / log4j: The Metabase component has been upgraded to version 0.41.6, which includes log4j version 2.17.1.
Data Processing: An issue has been fixed where canonicalized user names would show up as separate entries and thereby duplicating users in certain views.
Structural Changes / Upgrade Path
Data Warehouse Rebuild Required
DWH Rebuild Required
After installing the update, parts of the application may not be available until the data warehouse is rebuilt. This process runs automatically at night, but can be triggered manually after the update. On the first login after the installation, more information on this topic will be displayed, along with the option to trigger the rebuild.
Upgrade Procedure: Container Installer
