Released today, Novell Storage Manager 3.1.1 includes a number of new management capabilities and bug fixes that Storage Manager customers will want to leverage right away.
Structure and Categorization Options for Target Paths: The Leveling Algorithm setting of a policy’s Target Paths page now lets you structure the home folders so that they can be categorized by the first or last letter of a username through a subordinate folder. A new Leveling Length field allows you to enter up to 4 characters, making it so that you can organize home folders by year.
Many school districts using Novell Storage Manager to create, manage, and archive student home folders, have been wanting these options for a while.
Comments for Deferred Pending Events: You can now place comments on deferred pending events. This allows an administrator to specify to other administrators the reason why he or she deferred the event.
Expanded Options for Bypassable Events: This allows Novell Storage Manager to automatically attempt to address any pending events that can bypass administrative action.
Displaying Administrative and Hidden Shares: You have the option now to display Active Directory administrative and hidden shares in NSMAdmin.
A summary of all bug fixes are included in the Novell Storage Manager 3.1.1 Release Notes, available from the updated Novell Storage Manager documentation website.
