Today we published a Lights-Out maintenance release 2.0.3 which fixes issues reported by our users since release of 2.0.2.
What’s new in Lights-Out maintenance release 2.0.3?
With the previous Lights-Out maintenance release 2.0.2 we enabled the use of the modern TLS protocols 1.2 and 1.1. During the initial phase, the client and server select the protocol supported by both parties starting with TLS 1.2, then TLS 1.1 and finally TLS 1.0. However, we noticed that a few machines have broken TLS 1.2 support, and to make it even worse, do not automatically fall back to a working TLS 1.1 connection. In that case, a 2.0.2 Lights-Out client or console was not able to contact the server.
This issue is now addressed in Lights-Out maintenance release 2.0.3. Each Lights-Out client verifies that the automatic default setting (TLS 1.2, 1.1 and 1.0) is working. If not, each single protocol is tested until a working protocol is found.
The runtime chart does now show the name(s) of monitored task(s).
This release also includes support for the new Veeam Agent for Microsoft Windows FREE.
Upgrading the Server
Simply download Version 2.0.3 on your server and run the installer. You don’t need to uninstall any previous version 2.0.x. The installer takes care of it.
Upgrading Windows Client Computers
Windows Client Computers should upgrade within 15 minutes. You can also restart the computer to trigger the upgrade.
Upgrading Apple Mac Computers
Open Safari and download the Mac installer. Run it. It automatically takes care of any previous installation.
