This Up2Date adds two new features “WebAdmin Auditor role”, “Web Security Reporting for blocked pages” and fixes issues in different areas which increases stability and performance.
New Features and Enhancements
WebAdmin Auditor role
Users with Auditor role will be able to login to WebAdmin with restricted (read-only) access, so they only can only view reports and logfiles without permission to change system settings.
Web Security Reporting for blocked pages
New Web Security Reports list all websites that have been blocked by the Astaro Web Filter due to viruses found, blocked file extensions or blocked URL categories. Different views are available sorted by categories, users, domains, and more.
Please check also the V7.1 Release Notes PDF.
The following issues have been fixed with the current release, among others:
Several fixes have been made for High Availability configurations, including proper start-up of IPsec services, synchronization of authentication state when using external authentication like eDirectory, synchronization of configuration data and logfiles as well as the Up2Date process.
Several minor issues with the new HTTP Proxy have been fixed, i.e. with time based profiles, misbehaviour when parent proxy is not resolvable and with sites not working correctly.
Auto-usercreation now only creates lowercase usernames in order to avoid duplicate, case-sensitive usernames with remote authentication back-ends. Furthermore Single Sign-On within clustered eDirectory environments has been improved.
Tunnel Reference within live log
When using the IPsec live log viewer, the tunnel references will now be resolved to the tunnel names. That should help while debugging/viewing the IPsec status.
MMS connection tracking helper
The connection tracking helper for MMS has been removed as the protocol is only rarely used and also causes unstable behaviour in some cases.
Public List of Bugfixes:
Fix : Nics listed twice in WebAdmin overview
Fix : Bridge can not be disabled after importing a backup
Fix : IPsec starting in wrong mode after restart of HA system
Fix : Lots of config changes cause SMTP restarts
Fix : eDirectory SSO synchronisation: use overlapping sync intervall
Fix : Unresolved HTTP parent proxy kills the backend system
