RU6 MP1 - its coming!
I just wanted to take some time out and talk about RU6 MP1. As you may have seen, there are some people on Connect anxiously awaiting its release for a number of reasons.
While I cannot give you a definite date at this point, I can tell you it should be available soon. We hoped to have it out by now, but there is one last issue which we have to fix before we can release. RU6 MP1 is a maintenance patch for RU6 and RU6a and because of this, its very much focused on customer defects (somewhere around 80 by the time we ship), although we are adding one new feature for you.
Some of the issues which are currently fixed (and should be released) are:
1925607: DWHxxxx.tmp files are being scanned and re-detected when new definitions arrive and during scheduled scan
Most of you are fairly aware of this one. We think we have it nailed for the most part, there are a couple of caveats on Windows 7 and Vista though (mainly due to file indexing), but we know what they are and will have a KB up shortly with the details.
2038207: After upgrading to RU6 clients are experiencing Denial of Service (DoS) flood attacks.
This one too has caused some issues. What we saw was that browser prefetching (and other applications that send large numbers of DNS requests at once) were causing the logic behind this signature to be a little too sensitive. Rather than change the signature, we have made what we believe is a far better change, which is that DNS servers used by the OS at the time of the query will effectively be whitelisted dynamically.
2030356: Search return more results than expected.
2034712: SEPM searches no longer find clients after migrating to RU6
These two relate to issues with searching for clients across more than 200 groups, both should be fixed
and now, some of the more "special case" defects we are fixing, purely for interest:
1945683: Unable to create database with database name starting with a number.
1932182: PTP (COH32) Disables if file "program" exists on Root Drive.
1934825: Embedded DB can't handle TAB key in "Description" field of a ADC policy.
and finally, I mentioned a new feature... for those of you who use it (or have wanted to), DoScan has been enhanced to now give the ability to runs scans on a single file, a specific folder, sets of folders, drives, sets of drives or a combination. It can also run previously scheduled scans by their name.
As soon as I know more, I'll be posting to Connect
EDIT: RU6 MP1 has now released, it should hit FileConnect on Wednesday 18th.
