Release notes for Symantec Mail Security 8200 series and 8300 series appliance software version 5.0.0-33
Before you install the update, please note the following: The update may take some time to complete.
*** NOTE *** Do not reboot your appliance during the software update process. Interrupting the update process before completion may require a subsequent OS Restore to the appliance.
This software update contains the following: * Resolution of stability issues in the Filter Hub * Performance improvements for ruleset loading and execution * New command line utility to mitigate issues related to formatting of space in some LDAP entries: Some LDAP servers do not correctly/consistently apply whitespace and quote rules to the 'distinguished name' (dn). This can result in rejected groups due to mismatching of member entries. To work around this issue, a new command line interface command has been provided: dn-normalize. When dn normalization is enabled, a normalization function is applied to the data coming in from the LDAP server, which resolves mismatch problems. Note: This process is not recommended for most customers; you should only apply normalization if you are experiencing a problem with LDAP synchronization resulting from non-normalized data in the LDAP source.
To apply normalization: ----------------------- From the command line, type dn-normalize enable This stops ldapsync, enables dn normalization, and runs a utility to retroactively normalize any distinguished names already in MySQL, then restarts ldapsync. Depending on the size of your dataset, the normalization can take up to 5 minutes.
To cease normalizing: --------------------- From the command line, type dn-normalize disable This stops ldapsync, disables dn normalization, starts ldapsync, and prints a message advising that you perform a 'full sync' on any existing LDAP Sync sources.
To determine the status of normalization: ----------------------------------------- From the command line, type dn-normalize status This reports whether dn normalization is enabled ('YES') or disabled ('NO')
