Issues Fixed in this Version

GUI: Auto-logout

In version 5.0.26 there was an automatic logout in the system integrated. In several situations the user activity was not detected correctly, so that the user was logged off too often. This behavoir has been corrected. Also there is now the choice with this update to manually set the time out in a the form Settings → Usage Policy → Administrator. The default is set to one hour. For user sessions via Collax web access the time out can be changed in the form Settings → Services → Webserver. The default is set to one day.

Authentication: Usage Policies of Active Directory Groups

When importing groups from an Active Directory lower case and upper case hadn’t been considered. Consequently the group permissions hadn’n been set properly and users weren’t able to use services. This caused that permissions of imported users weren’t set correctly. With this update lower and upper case is included, users get the right permissions for Collax services.

Misc: High Load when updating ClamAV manually

The manual pattern update of ClamAV led to an infinite loop, which caused high CPU load. This will be fixed in this update

System Management: Amavis SNMP agent is shown as critical even if it is not activated

The active monitoring tried to check the Amavis SNMP agen so far, even if SNMP was not activated. This problem is solved now. The service is now only monitored if the SNMP is activated.

The Anti Virus product Avira Antivir will now be identically licensed like all Collax Modules. With this method a higher handling comfort is reached.

Add-on Software: Download Progress Bar when using Avira Antivir Web-Virus-Filter
