Server Manager 2022 Release Notes

Build Description Date
22.0.0.421 Fix a critical inventory bug. 2022-05-11
  • Previously when monitoring via the agent, the inventory was only saved once then future inventories were ignored. This bug has been fixed.
22.0.0.420 Added SSH Shell support. 2022-05-08
  • A new template called SSH Shell has been added to enable users to run SSH shell scripts. For more information search the in-application help file for SSH. The SSH Monitor Status view includes an interactive SSH Shell enabling users to proxy SSH commands through the Management Console.
22.0.0.418 Added and updated several help topics. 2022-05-05
  • The SSL Certificate Monitor Templates, Email Monitor Templates and SNMP Monitor Templates have all been documented in the in-application help file.
22.0.0.417 Added and updated several help topics. 2022-05-04
  • The Event Log Backup Template, Log Entry Retention Policy Template, Network Speed Monitor Template and Website Monitor Template have been documented in the in-application help file.
22.0.0.416 Fixed a monitor duration history chart bug and added help content. 2022-05-03
  • Previously when viewing a key-based monitor’s duration history, such as Event Log Consolidation, the duration history did not break out each log file. This caused the graph to incorrectly display. The view now displays a chart for each log.
  • A new help topic for Directory Services, Directory Services Monitor and TCP Port Monitor have been added.
22.0.0.414 Added documentation, enhancements and fixed several bugs. 2022-05-02
  • New documentation has been added for the Database Monitor Template, DNS Monitor Template, DNS Blacklist Monitor Template and Ping Monitor Template.
  • Several UI and debug logging enhancements have been made to the fore-mentioned templates.
  • A batch update template bug was recently introduced that caused synchronization between the ALL and specific selected templates to fail. This bug has been fixed.
22.0.0.412 Added SQLite support and fixed bogus installer reboot message. 2022-04-30
  • SQLite support has been added to the Data Providers.
  • Previously the MSI installer flagged the SNMP agent dll as in use, when in fact it was not. Moving the SNMP start service to the end of the installation resolved the false positive.
  • Previously when calculating the size of all directories on the Windows OS logical disk, reparse points such as Documents and Settings caused the application to recursively scan the same directory. This bug has been fixed.
  • Several performance enhancements have been added to various log viewers.
22.0.0.402 Added temporary path configuration parameter. 2022-04-29
  • Previously temporary files were always generated in the default location. When using the file system to save log entries rather than a database, large temporary files are generated potentially running the operating system logical disk out of space. The Miscellaneous Options now includes an option to specify an alternate temporary path to use.
22.0.0.400 Added several updates to the Event Log Backup and Event Log Consolidation Templates and fixed TLS 1.2 bug. 2022-04-27
  • Previously when compressing then backing up native Event Log Files to a UNC path, the file was first backed-up to the UNC path then compressed before finally be deleted. The behavior has changes so the file is backed up to a local temporary directory then compressed before finally being saved to the UNC path.
  • Several checks have been added to the Event Log Consolidation Template so upon receiving an unexpected WMI error the WMI connection is re-constructed then an attempt is made to download again.
  • Previously the Server Manager Server and Client were not explicitly configured to limit connections to TLS 1.2 which caused TLS connections to fail on machines with TLS 1.0 and 1.2 disabled. These bugs have been fixed.
22.0.0.397 Added a new Text Email Action. 2022-04-18
  • A new Text Email Action is now included in the default action objects. The email action includes the {DATA_ROWS} variable in the body which prints out log entries to a narrow attribute value table rather than a wide data table.
22.0.0.396 Added 7-Zip and WinRar Zip support. 2022-04-17
  • Previously when password protecting EVTX and text logs when backing up and when consolidated files, the password protection was not using standard Zip algorithms but rather a proprietary wrapper around the file. If users select to compress and password protect, the new Zip algorithms are used, otherwise if only encrypting without compress the previous proprietary wrapper is used. This update requires agent-based hosts update to the latest version of the agent.
  • Several file/folder open controls were displaying the Windows file/folder open dialogs rather than using the internal file/folder open dialogs which access the file system from the point of view of the service. These bugs have been fixed.
  • A new menu item as has been added the Report Groups enabling users to execute all assigned reports at once.
22.0.0.394 Enhanced Success and Failed Logon Reports. 2022-04-14

  • All of the Security Event Log and Directory and File reports have been updated to support multiple group by and sort by column rules.
  • Previously the Executable Status Views allowed users to close the History and Verbose Output tool windows when they should not have allowed the functionality. If closed the tool windows could not be re-opened. The state file name has been renamed and the option to close disabled.
22.0.0.391 Updated Success and Failed Logon Reports 2022-04-11
  • The Success and Failed Logon Reports have been updated to include column presence, column sort order and column group by rules for each of the optional 5 tables found in both reports.
22.0.0.389 Updated the Agent and Summary Views 2022-04-10
  • Previously the agent requested the next time to check for updates after completing the execution of all agent-based templates. If there was a version update within any of the templates that were received, the agent closed the connection without getting the next update time. The agent now requests the next time to check for updates before requesting the next templates to execute.
  • The Errors, Template Summary and Host Summary views, not be confused with Summary Report Views, have been updated to better display trigger messages.
  • When saving tables to file from the various viewers, the save function now honors multiple group by and sort rules.
22.0.0.386 Updated the HTML Output Template and fixed several UI bugs. 2022-04-08
  • The HTML output now disables wrapping in all columns except when messages are displayed in multi-line table rows. The integer formatting has all been removed so Event IDs no longer have commas in them.
  • Previously the Certificate detail page was not highlighting the message preview and the selected color was using the Windows selected color rather than the selected color in the software.
  • Previously when consolidating text log files, the log repository tree was adding a new node for the same log every minute. This bug has been fixed.
  • Previously the Preview Message setting was saved once for every log type. The setting is now saved once for each log type enabling users to hide message preview when viewing text logs and show message preview when viewing Event Logs.
  • The System Requirements have been updated to include support for SQL Server 2022 and SQL Server DBaas.
22.0.0.381 Added Flag enhancements and fixed several bugs. 2022-04-07

  • Several minor report display bugs have been resolved.
22.0.0.379 Fixed several front-end and back-end bugs. 2022-04-06
  • Previously the customer time range and last x hours controls available with in the log report properties views did not display. These bugs have been fixed.
  • Previously the Account Management Report did not include the event log entry description in the list of columns. This bug has been fixed.
  • Previously when exporting event log reports to HTML, the level column wrapped. The nowrap flag has been added to the HTML.
  • Previously new reports were grouping by the level image when viewed in the Management Console. This bug has been fixed. The fix may cause previously selected sort and group selections to be ignored. Simply reset the values via the report properties views if cleared.
22.0.0.377 Updated the server configuration file. 2022-04-05
  • Previously when using TLS 1.2 to encrypt the client/server connection each time a new update was installed the configuration file was overwritten causing the server to lose its binding, port and TLS configuration. The configuration file has been moved and the format changed to JSON. Please find the file in C:\Program Files\Corner Bowl\Server Manager 2022\tcpserver.json. The help file has been updated to include these updates.

  • Previously there was race condition on the Executable Status view that caused the spinner icon in the upper right corner to remain spinning when is should not have been spinning. This bug has been fixed.
  • The File Activity Monitor was updated to work like the other directory and file monitors.
22.0.0.367 Fixed several bugs. 2022-04-01
  • Previously the monthly schedule was running one day off and when choosing the first day of the month the last day of the month was set. This bug has been fixed.

22.0.0.181 Critical Workaround added for Microsoft’s Real-Time Windows Security Event Log bug. 2022-01-30
  • Summary: Real-time Security Event Log Monitors no longer receive formatted messages from the Windows Operating System. Effects: Real-time Security Event Log Monitors are not able to filter entries causing all real-time alerts to fail to trigger. Possible Culprits: We have verified this bug on Windows Server 2016 after Security Update KB5009546 was installed. Workaround: Real-Time Security Event Log Monitors: Re-configure all Real-Time Event Log Monitors to poll for entries. To do this modify all Real-Time Security Event Log Monitor Templates to use a fixed polling schedule such as every 15 seconds or once a minute. Logon Monitors: The Logon Monitor Template has been updated to support polling entries. Please note, Logon Monitor triggers will still execute once for each login entry that passes your filter criteria. Polling Logon Monitor trigger state is set to either OK or Error. At this time Polling Logon Monitor trigger state is overwritten by the last download status, for example, 10 entries downloaded. This update requires you to install the latest version of Corner Bowl Server Manager 2022. Discovered: While testing success and failed login attempts, the last real-time Security Event Log alert we received was on January 19th.

22.0.0.118 Enhanced the Agent and the Management Console and fixed several bugs. 2021-12-12
  • The Agent now compresses Event Log Entries to a zip file then uploads the file. This new format resolves timeout issues that previously occurred when uploading large Security Event Logs while at the same time compressing the data significantly reducing the data pushed on the wire.
  • Several views within the Management Console have been updated to use a new File/Folder selection dialog that accesses the file system from the server the service is running rather than using the Windows File/Folder Open and Save dialogs which access the file system from the Management Console which may or may not be on the same system as the service. The updated views are: File System Data Provider Properties and Network Speed Monitor Template Properties.
  • Previously the Network Speed Monitor Template was not triggering alerts. This bug has been fixed.
  • A new Syslog Action is now included in the default configuration called Syslog Text Message which uses the {TEXT_MESSAGE} tag to write out the detailed monitor information.
22.0.0.116 Updated disk monitors to use WMI over Windows Shares and made several performance enhancements to the Agent. 2021-12-09
  • Previously when Mitigating NTLM Relay Attacks on Active Directory Certificate Services as documented in Microsoft’s KB5005413 disk monitors no longer worked. The disk monitors previously used Windows Shares and several low level Windows C APIs which do not work when KB5005413 is implemented. The disk monitors have been updated to use WMI.
  • Previously when uploading large Security Event Logs from the Agent, two different errors often occurred: a timeout error and out of memory error. The socket write function did not consider large packets and was wasteful with memory. The function has been updated and now consumes 1/3 the memory. When the packet is large enough to trigger the write timeout, which is set to 2 minutes in the configuration file, the socket is closed. Since the Security Log upload is incomplete the server dumps the data. The timeout has been updated to 5 minutes. If the agent is already installed, you will need to update the write timeout in the cbsmagt.exe.config file located at in the following directory: C:\ProgramData\Corner Bowl\Server Manager Agent 2022
22.0.0.113 Added CSV support and updated text log templates to support column definition. 2021-12-08

22.0.0.100 Fixed a disk monitor bug and a Server Manager 2018 report import bug. 2021-11-24
  • Previously disk monitors that were scanning all discovered disk errored when a disk returned is read/write but has a capacity of 0 bytes. Server Manager 2018 ignored this error however Server Manager 2022 was not. The behavior has been updated to match Server Manager 2018.
  • Previously when importing Server Manager 2018 reports, reports that were identical but with different names were not imported. The behavior has been changed to import these reports as well.
22.0.0.98 Fixed a Critical Auto Configurator import bug. 2021-11-23
  • Previously when importing Auto Configurators from Server Manager 2018, when the default Active Directory connection was applied recursively from a child OU, the new Constant Delivery Pipeline implementation was connecting to the root OU causing the entire tree to be scanned. This bug has been fixed.
22.0.0.97 Updated log monitor alert messages and fixed a service log truncation bug. 2021-11-23
  • Log monitor alerts now display the entire message in the status and tooltip views.
  • Previously the default reports were disabled with a schedule set causing the disabled icons to display. The behavior has changed so now the reports are enabled but no schedule is set. This method allows for the Report icons to appear normal.
  • Previously when opening a text log file from the file menu to view, the viewer automatically scanned the entire file to get the entry count then tailed the file. When opening large log files this caused a delay in the viewer. The viewer options now include a checkbox to automatically tail the file. The default setting is disabled.
  • The service log file was not self-truncating. This bug has been fixed.
22.0.0.94 Added text email and HTML template override support. 2021-11-21
  • The email actions now support sending text-based messages.
  • The email and file actions now support overriding the default HTML template.
  • Previously when receiving a timeout error when viewing a large consolidated log’s data properties all summary views were cleared and instead displayed the error. The error now only displays in the summary view that timed-out.
22.0.0.93 Fixed several real-time monitor bugs. 2021-11-20
  • Real-Time Microsoft Application log monitors now throw an error stating they can only be monitored using a polling schedule. This change has been made because Microsoft’s API does not support throwing an error when there is a connectivity error to the server leaving the monitor in a disconnected state.
  • Previously the host status included disabled templates. The host status no longer includes disabled
  • Several error rate and schedule bugs have been fixed.
  • The report date ranges have been updated to include a few more ranges including last x hours.

22.0.0.75 Fixed a critical agent installer bug. 2021-11-03
  • Previously the service would continually attempt to install the agent on targeted machines even after the agent was updated to the latest version. This caused the MSI installer to run each minute generating a log file in the Windows temporary directory. This bug has been fixed.
22.0.0.74 Fixed several user interface bugs. 2021-11-03
  • Previously when dragging and dropping groups, the drop operation did not always display the group until after the console was restarted. This bug has been fixed.
