We have officially reached Release Candidate (RC) status for NTM 1.0.10. RC is the last step before general availability and is a chance for existing customers to get the newest functionality for NTM before it is available to everyone else.

NTM 1.0.1 includes some customer requests as well as several bug fixes. Here is a list of the features included in 1.0.10

 

  • NTM is unresponsive during discovery. (case 225201, 218320)
  • NTM returns an internal error when a Seed device is entered for scanning (case 215087)
  • SNMP Credentials test now checks for v1 and v2.
  • NTM now exports to Microsoft Visio 2013
  • Displays & searches all IP Addresses of nodes.
  • NTM now displays 10Gb Link Speed connections.
  • Improvements in reporting, order of tabular report columns adjustable & now showing enumerated values in the Switch port Report.
  • It is now possible to cancel a WMI credentials test.
  • Evaluation Map can be exported to Microsoft Visio with restrictions.

 

RC builds are made available to existing customers prior to the formal release. These are used to get customer feedback in production environments and are fully supported.
