#29651 - On AWS Console, simple/smart transfers with a SOFTLAYER node as the source will fail. The reverse also fails: on SOFTLAYER Console, simple/smart transfers with an AWS node as the source will fail.

#29858 - Sometimes Console's database is left empty after restoring a configuration file and users not allowed to log back into Console. Workaround: Before restoring your configuration file, follow the steps in this article: https://support.asperasoft.com/entries/90334347.

#29891 - Sometimes restoring Console's configuration file deletes the home folder of users in aspusers group, except aspadmin. Workaround: Before restoring your configuration file, follow the steps in this article: https://support.asperasoft.com/entries/90334347.

Aspera Faspex Application On Demand (FOD)

Aspera Faspex Application product version updated to 3.9.1 with the following new features:

  • Implemented ability to require package recipients to self-register an account if they do not already have one.
  • New rake tasks have been implemented for creating, updating, and deleting users in bulk.
  • Functionality for using Microsoft Azure transfer servers.
  • New "locked" status in the Accounts page to describe accounts that are locked out from too many failed login attempts.
  • Dropbox members can submit packages to their dropboxes even without regular upload permissions.
  • Implemented custom attributes to support additional fields set in SAML.
  • Default IBM Aspera Connect Web Plug-in minimum version set to 3.1.0. Note that versions before 3.4.2 can still be used but may not be fully functional.
Note: To see the full list of new features, refer to the Aspera Faspex 3.9.1 Release Notes.

Known Issues

#29652 - Backing up and restoring Faspex on a Softlayer FOD changes the server's name from its real IP to "localhost". (Observed by navigating to Server > Configuration > Web Server)

#29653 - Restoring configuration to a FOD instance replaces the apache hostname with the backup FOD's hostname. Workaround: Reset the Apache hostname to that of the current FOD using the command:asctl apache:hostname <current FOD IP address>.

Aspera Console On Demand (COD)

New Features

  • Implemented option for configuring a file checksum method in the aspera.conf file for a node.
Note: To see the full list of new features, refer to the Aspera Console 2.5.1 Release Notes.

Issues Fixed

  • #24529 - Report files are now of the type XLSX, rather than XLS. Filenames still use the .xls extension.
  • #26149 - Groups: When there are many paths among nodes, editing groups or deleting nodes can be very slow.
Application Platform On Demand (APOD) / Server On Demand (SOD)

New Features

  • Encryption-at-rest (EAR) support for HTTP fallback.
  • Various enhancements to the drag-and-drop feature, including support for mime type, date last modified, name, and size.
