Notice of changes

Release notice Affected component

GA3.1.0 version is continuation of the previous production release GA3.0.23-150224, with number of fixes as listed at the bottom of this page.

With the upgraded platform compatibility changes, please be aware that some components are now built on newer versions of the platform. For example, Netprobe on Solaris platform is now built on SunOS 5.10. Previously it was built on SunOS 5.8.

If your deployment or configurations relied on the build platform versions (eg - probe[(rparam("OS")="SunOS 5.8")), you will need to update your configurations to work with this new release.

If you are upgrading to 64 bit Gateway 2, please be aware that you may need to change your library path setting that is used for email alerts. In 32 bit Gateway this is lib/libemail.so, in 64 bit Gateway this is lib64/libemail.so.

There is a known issue in this release with generating Express Reports on 64 bit Gateway 2 running on Solaris x86 platform. If you experience issues generating charts, it may be due to incompatible library file. To work around this issue, please download the 32 bit Gateway 2 on Solaris x86 platform and copy file lib directory from your 32 bit Gateway 2 install into your 64 bit Gateway 2 install. This issue will be fixed in a future release.
