Build Notes


    Fixed several bugs

    Fri, 28 Jun 2019 08:10:34 MDT

    • Previously the new Directory Real-Time Size Watcher monitor was not clearing the previously logged files when automatically clearing causing the alerts to continue to grow in size while repeating files from previous alerts in the current alert. This bug has been fixed.
    • Fixed a bad link in the help file.

    Added text log monitor unicode option and fixed several bugs.

    Thu, 20 Jun 2019 01:46:44 MDT

    • Previously if a text log file was not flagged internally as Unicode but the file contained Unicode content, the text log monitor was unable to parse the file. A new option has been added that enables users to explicitly open files as Unicode.
    • Previously when canceling a change on the Text Log Monitor entry pattern recognition screen the UI failed to backout the entry pattern recognition from memory. This bug has been fixed.
    • The system requirements listed in the help file have been updated to include Windows Server 2016 and Windows 10.

    Increased PDF creation timeout value

    Mon, 10 Jun 2019 09:48:32 MDT

    • Previously a customer was receiving a navigation timeout when creating PDFs. Since the reports do not navigate it seems odd setting the value will make a difference. This build is an attempt to see if increasing the timeout value to 300 seconds will resolve their issue.

    Fixed a critical network browsing bug

    Sat, 08 Jun 2019 11:32:17 MDT

    • Previously on Windows 10 when attempting to browse the network to add servers the browse network dialog threw an arithmetic overflow error. This bug has been fixed.

    Fixed a fatal startup bug

    Fri, 31 May 2019 01:04:01 MDT

    • Build 93 contained a fatal startup bug that was thrown on a new installation. This bug has been fixed.
    • Previously if a NIC card was swapped out on a server, the software was unable to send the administrator a message letting them know the software needs to be re-registered. This bug has been fixed.

    Added new product options.

    Tue, 28 May 2019 10:16:41 MDT

    • Previously when I first developed Server Manager I had several functional packages which allowed me to create individual products enabling customers the option to purchase only the feature set they needed. I have created 5 new products. Event Log Manager, Text Log Monitor, Syslog Server, Disk Monitor and Internet Server Monitor. Each product contains a sub-set of Server Manager functionality at a fraction of the cost.

    Added a real-time directory size monitor

    Mon, 27 May 2019 11:09:29 MDT

    • A new real-time directory size monitor was added to the software. The monitor watches file system changes in real-time then calculates the change in directory size by way of scanning the size of newly created files. When the monitor triggers the top 100 largest files that caused the trigger are included within the message.

    Fixed a critical directory watcher bug

    Mon, 20 May 2019 08:58:13 MDT

    • Previously when monitoring a directory for created, modified, moved and deleted files the trigger action threw an object reference error. This bug has been fixed.

    Updated installer to include prompt for installation directory

    Mon, 13 May 2019 10:13:44 MDT

    • Previously users were unable to set the installation directory during the initial installation. The installer now provides this option.

    Fixed several disk space monitor bugs

    Wed, 08 May 2019 08:29:50 MDT

    • Previously Disk Space Monitors that were configured to monitor specific disks that included a disk that was not found and 'Ignore disk not found errors' was selected the entire monitor would trigger an error alert. This bug has been fixed.
    • Previously when re-opening a Disk Space Monitor Template that was configured to monitor specific disks the configured disks did not display on the Disk and Shares tab until after a machine was selected in the Servers/Workstations drop-down list. This bug has been fixed.

    Fixed legacy import bug

    Mon, 06 May 2019 05:29:48 MDT

    • Previously the Log Manager, Disk Monitor and Internet Server Monitor import functions were attempting to load the legacy configuration files from the wrong directory. This bug has been fixed.

    Fixed two bugs

    Mon, 22 Apr 2019 02:22:20 MDT

    • Previously when shutting down the service, if an Account Lockout Report was running the report did not shutdown. In cases where numerous servers were assigned to the report this caused the service to appear as though it hung during shutdown. This bug has been fixed.
    • Previously when displaying consolidated logs host names that had aliases assigned to them did not display the alias in the log viewer header but instead displayed the actual hostname or IP. This bug has been fixed.

    Fixed UI bug

    Wed, 17 Apr 2019 09:51:01 MDT

    • Previously when updating a Syslog or Text Log Consolidation Template with a different Log Entry Retention Policy Template and no other updates were made the UI did save the update. This bug has been fixed.

    Fixed a backup configuration bug

    Tue, 16 Apr 2019 01:34:31 MDT

    • Previously when manually backing up the configuration if the previously backed up directory is on a disk that is no longer accessible, the backup function threw an 'Access to the path' error. This bug has been fixed.

    Fixed a Server 2016 Logon Session Report bug

    Fri, 12 Apr 2019 08:16:56 MDT

    • Thanks to several customers for reporting a bug in the Windows Server 2016 Logon Sessions report I have fixed the report. Microsoft changed the format of Event 4624 on Server 2016. The parsing code has been updated to support Server 2016 - 2003.

    Fixed critical licensing bug

    Wed, 03 Apr 2019 10:02:32 MDT

    • In certain online instances licensing was lost. This bug has been fixed.

    Added detail to log messages

    Thu, 28 Mar 2019 09:39:26 MDT

    • Previously when removing or archiving consolidated log entries, the output messages did not always include the log information and when it was included, the log name was embedded within the message making it difficult to read within the output view. The Log Entry Retention Policy function now includes the log name in front of each message separated by a dash enabling users to more easily identify which log each message is associated with.

    Added verbose information to licensing validation

    Sat, 16 Mar 2019 10:58:56 MDT

    • Previously if a license was copied from another installation or the user registered while logged into a VPN, the license validation process did not log the MAC address contained within the license.xml file. The validation process now logs the invalid MAC address to the service log file and explains the issue in hopes users can self-diagnose and resolve the issue on their own.

    Fixed several bugs

    Tue, 12 Mar 2019 07:16:23 MDT

    • Previously when Event Log Backup templates were assigned to unreachable servers, the console would hang while connecting to the service. This bug has been fixed.
    • Previously when testing a new SQL Server database configuration, the verbose output was missing the server name. This bug has been fixed.

    Fixed directory watcher bug

    Mon, 11 Mar 2019 11:44:02 MDT

    • Previously the directory watcher monitor did not suppress actions when configured. This bug has been fixed.

    Fixed serveral bugs

    Mon, 04 Mar 2019 05:19:56 MST

    • Previously when enabling log entry alert frequency suppression and assigning multiple actions, each action was erroneously counting as a trigger instance rather than simply incrementing once. This bug has been fixed.
    • Since version 18 when disabling the tray icon via the options dialog, the tray icon was not closed. This bug has been fixed.

    Fixed performance counter bug

    Sun, 03 Feb 2019 08:49:14 MST

    • Previously when displaying a performance counter template if the assigned server was not reachable the user interface failed to display the configuration controls. This bug has been fixed.

    Updated the MySQL .Net connector.

    Fri, 01 Feb 2019 08:02:35 MST

    • The MySQL .Net connector has been updated to the latest version available at the time of this build.

    Added licensing UI updates.

    Sun, 20 Jan 2019 02:17:38 MST

    • Previously the registration dialog only allowed the maximum number of characters to be entered, however; when copying a license from our website white space is often included causing the trailing character to be deleted. The dialog has been updated to trim the white space and provide up to 64 characters to be entered rather than the previous value of 32.
    • Fixed several spacing bugs.

    Fixed UI bug

    Mon, 14 Jan 2019 09:30:25 MST

    • Previously when displaying consolidated logs the Days Per Page value set via the Options dialog was not being set requiring users to wait while the view loaded prior to setting the desired value. In certain cases, this can take as long as an hour. This bug has been fixed.

    Fixed several licensing bugs

    Fri, 11 Jan 2019 11:27:21 MST

    • Previously in certain cases offline servers were unable to use the license file.
    • Added several licensing initialization messages to the service to aid in troubleshooting licensing issues.

    Fixed several bugs

    Mon, 07 Jan 2019 08:37:20 MST

    • After an operating system update, the console was no longer able to assign service credentials. This bug has been fixed.
    • When TLS 1.0 and 1.1 were disabled the service was unable to send an email. This bug has been fixed.
  • Build

    Added several enhancements and fixed several bugs

    Mon, 01 Feb 2016 03:07:26 MST

    • Fixed bug 27073 - Unable to compress files larger than 4GBs.
    • Fixed bug 27758 - The daily range schedule updates everytime the service is restarted causing some templates to be rescheduled to the next day.
    • Fixed bug 27354 - When backing up Windows Event Logs on some Server 2008 R2 servers, Windows creates very large temporary files on the remote server.
    • Fixed bug 27370 - Syslog Retention Policy fails to schedule when multiple syslog consolidation templates are assigned.
