What is/are: New in Northern Storage Suite 9.0 SR5 (Release Notes)


  • Stability, performance and feedback to operator
    NSS 9.0 SR5 is a service release, providing a bulk delivery of adjustments and improvements to offer a more resilient and robust version of the current feature set. SR5 is a recommended upgrade for all NSS customers.
  • Resolution of unexpected behaviour in Host Scan configuration feature
    The 'N levels below' feature in Host Scan configuration has been corrected to allow full recursive file system crawls. This feature can be used to automatically, at run-time, discover and include all shares, or all folders at an operator defined level within the file system, within the Storage Reporter Host Scan.
  • Improved support for MS Cluster Server
    Memory management of the NSS Cluster Supervisor has been improved. Additionally NSS 9.0 SR5 offers management of multiple virtual file servers from a single client; a feature that showed unexpected behaviour in previous versions.
