All VOV-10969   The command vovclientmgr show no longer incorrectly labels clients without "nicknames" as HTTP clients.

Resolved Issues

The following issues were resolved in 2019.01 Update 4 software release.
Product Internal Number Case Number Description
All VOV-10999   Fixed issue that prevented the show all rows link from working on the buckets web UI page. Previously, using this link would result in an empty table as opposed to showing all available rows.
All VOV-10350   All installers/SFDs now reject installation paths that contain spaces.
All VOV-10427 24510 This ticket addressed three issues that affected crash recovery.

The first was a race condition that occurred when a vovslave connected to a restarted server. If the vovslave license authorization happened to be checked during a very small interval the result was that the vovslave was destroyed.

The second was that 'hog protection' was inadvertently applied to vovslaves during crash recovery with the result that reconnection of vovslaves after a serve restart could be delayed until crash recovery period had ended. (This compounded the first issue during crash recovery.)

The third issue was cosmetic and resulted an a Tcl stack trace if the vovserver took too long to respond while restarting. The database queries (vtk_select_loop) parameters were adjusted to lengthen the response period.

Also see the release notes for VOV-10444 for pertinent crash recovery parameters.

All VOV-10221 24265, 24417 vovserver failover recovery has been enhanced to try for the recovery on all the configured server candidates.
All VOV-9902   Prevent vovserver and child processes from exiting when Ctrl-C is pressed in the Windows command prompt from which the server was started.
All VOV-11126 24961 The description of the RAMUSED slave resource was updated for better clarity on usage.
