What is/are: New in NSS 9.61 SR3 (Release Notes)


  • Multi-path View in the NSS Console
    The Dashboards of NSS offer powerful summary information that allows business owners and administrators to quickly identify where efficiency can be increased and risk reduced; where users are cleaning up their shares, where pockets of stale and unwanted data remain, which file types are driving growth, etc. Concrete and specific information is needed if these individuals are to efficiently take advantage of these opportunities. In situations where users are responsible for a single path, then the Single Path View provides a powerful tool-set for action. In cases where users are responsible for multiple shares, the Multi-Path View offers the information that is needed; detailed information about all of their file shares or file shares grouped according to a Path Label.
  • Drill-down from Path Labels in NSS Console
    Many customers are beginning to use Path Labels to create a layer of abstraction between users and UNC paths, so users see their home shares as 'H:\' rather than \\server\folder\firstname.lastname, or managers see a list of user names rather than a list of home share paths. NSS 9.61 SR3 introduces the possibility to drill-down from Path Labels in the NSS Console to the Single Path and Multi-path Views, opening up the possibility for drill-down to those organizations who have adopted the Path Label feature.
  • Reduced Memory Use in 'Notify Denied User' and 'Notify Contributor' Quota Notifications
    On EMC VNX, HDS HNAS and NetApp 7-Mode and Clustered Data ONTAP NSS is able to send email notifications to users who attempt to save into a locked quota, or attempt to save a prohibited file type - "Notify Denied User". NSS is also able to send emails to a customizable number of users who most recently saved data into a path that has breached a quota threshold - "Notify Contributor". Email addresses for users who should receive these notifications are collected from Active Directory automatically. These are powerful notification options to keep users informed and ensure that they know which course of action they should take, without needing to contact the Help Desk team. Improvements have been made in both of these notification options to significantly reduce the RAM used on the NSS Application Server.
  • Improved Handling of Weak RPC Connections
    Northern has seen some cases, predominately within NetApp 7-Mode environments, where the RPC connection necessary for quota locking and blocking operations can be lost. This problem results in a cycle of 233 Errors and quota locking or blocking actions being disabled. In NSS 9.61 SR3, Northern has introduced a new method to re-register the RPC connection when it is lost.
