Subject: (SUPPORT) Enterprise Linux 3.0.1 for ImageStream routers available
Version 3.0.1 of ImageStream's Enterprise Linux is now available as an
general release for all ImageStream router customers.
This software release is provided at no charge to all ImageStream
customers. Version 3.0.1 is recommended for any customers using ipchains
REJECT rules with Version 3.0.0.
See "Limitations and Upgrade Instructions" before upgrading.
This release note documents commands and features added between Version
3.0.0 and the Version 3.0.1 release.
New Features in Version 3.0.1
Version 3.0.1 is a maintenance release. No new features have been added.
Bugs fixed in Version 3.0.1
The following bugs have been fixed in Version 3.0.1:
Remote Logging Script No Longer Adds Serial Port
The router-utils package in Version 3.0.0 included a script (setrlog)
that added logging to a serial port (/dev/ttyS0) to the list of devices
used by the system logger (syslogd). Logging to an unconnected serial
port can cause the system to hang waiting for the non-existent terminal
ipchains REJECT Rules Functionality
Due to a kernel configuration error resulting from updates to the QoS
package, Version 3.0.0 did not support ipchains REJECT rules. ipchains
DENY rules work normally. All valid ipchains commands, including ipchains
REJECT rules, are functional in 3.0.1.
IP-Takeover Script Fixed
The version of the sed utility included with Version 3.0.0 did not support
all of the options required for the script used to configure new
IP-Takeover feature. A new version of the required utility has been added
to Version 3.0.1 and the script has been corrected.
Limitations and Upgrade Instructions
*** NOTE! If the upgrade fails, do NOT reboot! Contact ImageStream's
Technical Support without rebooting. ***
Upgrading to Version 3.0 or later requires the following:
1. 64 MB of RAM or higher.
2. 32 MB of flash.
3. 300 MHz processor or better.
3. Enterprise Linux Version 2.3.2 or higher.
The upgrade utility will not install Version 3.0 if memory and flash
requirements are not met. Users can contact ImageStream to purchase a
RAM, processor or flash upgrade.
Users running an Enterprise Linux version less than 2.3.2 must upgrade
before Version 3.0 will be available from the Update menu. Upgrading any
version prior to 2.3.2 will automatically be upgraded to 2.3.2. A second
upgrade will be required to install Version 3.0.
The upgrade does not otherwise affect the stored configuration in the
ImageStream router. To back up the router's configuration prior to
upgrading, choose option 4 (Backup/Restore) from the router's main menu.
Choose the Backup methods option (Option 1) and select a method from the
choices listed. From the router's command line, use the "backup
" command. The backup utility takes four arguments: flash
(to back up configurations to the router's nonvolatile flash memory),
floppy (to back up to a floppy disk), scp (to back up via secure copy), or
file (to back up to a separate file on the router's nonvolatile flash
