NPM 10.3 Beta 3 is now available!




We have the 3rd installement of NPM 10.3 beta ready for you!
Mav has already written about the previous betas here .


Betas are early development builds that are not supported in production.
All support assistance is provided directly by development on thwack using this forum.
Also, upgrades to future betas are not supported.
If you are an existing NPM customer and want to give this a try and give us some feedback, please fill out this survey and we'll provide you the download information.

So what's in Beta 3?

Tons of fixes and improvements, most of them listed below.


But I wanted to come back on an improvement that was already available in 10.3 Beta 1, driven by MANY of you.
Whith this improvement, your UnDP alerts based on tables can now contain an identification of which row of the table experienced the alert violation condition.
Your alert can now look like this (the row identification, i.e. the port in this case - highlighted in yellow - is now part of the caption)


Where previously your table-based alerts could not identify the row (only the node is identified below)


We hope that you'll like NPM 10.3 and will post your feedback in this forum (great opportunity to try the new thwack!).
Remember, you need to fill the survey first, but it takes just a couple of minutes.

As discussed above, here is the list of what is fixed in 10.3 beta 3.
Some of you may recognize your case number and description.
Note the last one (Wirelesss Thin Client improvements), which was also reported by many of you.

Wirelesss Thin Client improvements:
  - Aruba polling was fixed. We are now polling status for Aruba's APs and not removing APs when they have no interfaces.
  - We are able to recognize disassociated APs on Cisco controller. Disassociated thin APs have yellow (warning) icon and it is possible to create an alerts on this.
  - Thin APs on Cisco controllers are showing SSIDs.
  - Better support of disappeared APs (APs that were removed from controller). These APs have grey (unknown) icon and they are automatically removed from DB in the next poll. You are able to create an alert on AP going to unknown (disassociated) status.
  - Two WL events have been added: New rogue AP was detected and Thin AP disappeared from controller. Second event is enabled by default
