Hot off the Press – Routing and RADIUS fixes on the way

Couple of cool tidbits

  • Routing – Full connectivity upgrades are on the way where the READY member will accept routes from the Active member. No more manually copying routes on upgrades!!
  • Routing – Is going to be cluster aware. So cluster commands like cphastop/start will also stop/start the routing daemon. YEAH!!! No more magic commands to admin the daemon separately
  • Routing – Has had sufficient patches and is fairly stable. With the two above fixes I would finally give the nod to start looking into routing on your firewalls.
  • RADIUS – They will accept a new attribute from the RADIUS server that will specify the designated shell. So from a RADIUS server you can pass GAIA role, UID (0 or 96), and SHELL. Very cool! Even better than the SPLAT version

Thank YOU!

      Not sure. I did RFE’s and development agreed to work on them. Not sure they will
      backport to R75.47 or below.

    Any idea when, or if these have been completed?

      Well the commands are in 77.20 but they don’t work so its close. I heard today they are working it but that’s all I got.
