Dear Open-E Partner,
We are pleased to inform you
that the new version update of Open-E DSS
V6 up95 b6156 is ready to
be downloaded from our website (please use the Trial version for the update):
We provide you with new and enhanced features in every new release
of our software. With this version update you will be able to use the following:
Volume Replication tasks can be added or removed to the iSCSI Failover without the need to stop the failover cluster.
Open-E DSS V6 can now be used as a Virtual
Storage Appliance (VSA) for VMware (using native VMware network driver)
which saves a lot of hardware in case of a HA cluster setup.
Mutual CHAP user authentication for iSCSI Targets is available with
this update. Target and initiator verify each other with this security
drivers for VMware and Hyper-V 10 Gigabit Ethernet controller have been
included which significantly increases performance in virtual
With every new software release we also post fixes for
issues reported by our technical support.
The issues are not critical for general functionality but
will obviously reduce tickets and questions that arise while using Open-E DSS V6.
This time we have posted the following fixes:
The Trial registration mechanism will run smoothly and cause no more errors.
Using the same network port for different Volume Replication tasks is not causing function instability anymore.
The LSI battery status is now available in the WebGUI.
Nested shares can now be created in WebGUI to set up different levels of security.
