This file lists the recent defects fixed in Serena License Manager.
Licenses are now correctly released by SLM when they are checked in. This problem occurred intermittently with all products using SLM.
In some scenarios, Serena License Manager did not allow a user to log into a Serena product using an available concurrent license. This occured when the user was assigned one or more named licenses, and was already using all of these named licenses (for example to log in from another system). In this case, the user should have been able to use available concurrent licenses for additional logins from other systems. This has been fixed.
TeamTrack licenses are no longer allocated to TeamTrack users who are already assigned a named Professional, Tracker, or Tracker I-Net license. This problem occurred if concurrent TeamTrack licenses were available, or when the option to "auto-add" user IDs was selected for named TeamTrack licenses.
Tracker I-Net licenses are no longer allocated to TeamTrack users who are already assigned a named Professional or Tracker license. This problem occurred if concurrent Tracker I-Net licenses were available, or when the option to "auto-add" user IDs was selected for named Tracker I-Net licenses.
IMPORTANT! To address these issues, the TeamTrack server must be upgraded to version 6.6.1 or later.
All license servers in a quorum no longer shut down when the license server is stopped for any single license server in the quorum.
Note: For instructions on setting up redundant servers for SLM, refer to Solution 5004775 in the Solutions area of http://support.serena.com.
Validation problems that may have caused the TeamTrack Web server to stop have been solved.
The License Manager interface now functions correctly after a UCR enabler license is added. This enabler is used by the integration between Serena TeamTrack and Serena Composer.
Server names are no longer corrupted when users connect to the Version Manager Windows client and the host name for the client contains double-byte characters.
The Licensing Quickstart Guide was missing critical UNIX information, including the name of the startup script. This has been fixed.
When the License Manager was installed to UNIX, no e-mail notification was generated when users attempted to log in to a product or use a feature for which no licenses were available. This has been fixed.
On UNIX, the paste function failed in the License Manager tool, making it very difficult to enter new license keys. This has been fixed.
E-mail notifications failed when the e-mail server was not configured to automatically append @domain_name to the from address, resulting in messages being sent with no domain value at all. This has been fixed. You can now manually define the from address for e-mail notifications, either by entering it on the Notification tab of the License Manager tool, or by editing the from value in the licmgr.ini file.
When concurrent licenses were simultaneously installed both for the Professional Suite and for individual products within the Professional Suite, the correct total number of concurrent licenses for individual products only displayed when no Professional licenses were in use. This has been fixed.
Under certain circumstances, such as when X-Windows font substitution was in use, the font size displayed by the License Manager tool was too small to be readable. This has been fixed. To increase the font size, you can now specify a fontsize property in the SLM_GUI section of the licmgr.ini file. For example:
During installation on Windows platforms, you can define a custom program group for the shortcuts to the License Manager components. The custom program group was not always applied--instead, the default was used. This has been fixed. You can now successfully customize the program group.
Concurrent licenses were sometimes assigned to users for whom named licenses were defined. This resulted in concurrent licenses being unnecessarily consumed, when named licenses should have been used instead. This has been fixed.
From the Products tab of the License Manager tool, you can click Manage User IDs to display all named users. In some cases, users that had only been named once were displayed twice, appearing to use twice as many named licenses than they actually did. This has been fixed.
The License Manager sometimes failed to start on UNIX platforms, with the following error:
Unable to start License Manager: Vendor daemon can't talk to lmgrd
