What is/are: New in NSS 9.6 SR1 (Release Notes)


  • File System Permission Synchronization
    This new capability allows NSS administrators to automatically provide users with access to reports that include 'their' shares. With this feature enabled, when the user logs into the NSS console the reports they view will include all of the shares where their AD group membership allows them read or write (configurable) privileges. In other words, with a few simple configurations in NSS, organizations can allow all users to view reports about the shares they have access to within the file systems - without the need to manage an additional set of permissions or rules. Extremely low maintenance cost and fully secure access to UDM reports throughout the organization.
  • Report access rules on AD Groups
    Manual or scripted NSS Console Access Rules can now be set on domain groups. This feature will allow organizations to more easily manage the manual/scripted creation and maintenance of report access rules. Allow all members of the Engineering group to view reports about the condition and trends of Engineering department and project folders, for example.
  • Owner-less Scanning
    The file system scan that is used to populate the console and Storage Reporter interfaces collects file ownership information. Collecting owner SIDs and querying Active Directory to resolve owners is the most time consuming part of this scan. In some environments ownership information is not reliable or useful, ownership having been lost in a migration project for example. In order to avoid using time to collect information that is not useful, a manual switch (registry or database configuration) has been added that allows customers in this situation to turn off file ownership retrieval. This switch does not remove reports that rely on this information from the reporting clients, these reports are still displayed but without data.
  • Stability and Performance
    NSS 9.6 SR1 is a service release, providing delivery of adjustments and improvements to offer a more resilient and robust version of the current feature set. NSS9.6 SR1 is a recommended upgrade for all customers.
