Compatibility Notes:

  • You must upgrade to Management Console 1.7.0 or newer prior to upgrading to firmware 3.5.0 or newer
  • Release candidate 1.7.1 is compatible with previously released versions of the PCoIP Management Console (MC). Databases created using earlier releases of the tool can be imported into this version of the tool
  • PCoIP devices managed by the MC must be loaded with firmware release 0.19 or later. The MC cannot discover devices loaded with older firmware releases. New firmware must be uploaded and activated on devices running firmware releases less than or equal to 0.18
  • This release of the MC was tested with VMware® Workstation™ version 7.0.1 and VMware ESX®version 4.0.0. Instructions on how to run the MC virtual machine (VM) on ESX are in the VMware ESX user manual

Resolved Issues:

  • Fixed an issue with the Set Properties dialog for Session Configuration in Manage Profiles webpage not displaying corresponding options when using Internet Explorer® 7
  • Fixed an issue where the device name is reset to a default name when the device is moved to a different group
  • Fixed an issue with the profile’s last updated time not updating when settings for USB Authorization, USB Unauthorization, USB Bridged, or Certificate Store change 
  • Fixed an issue with USB Authorization, USB Unauthorization, and USB Bridged device tables not being imported from a profile exported from MC release 1.6.0.

Known Issues:

  • This release is only compatible with versions 3 or later of the Firefox® web browser and versions 7 and 8 of the Microsoft® Internet Explorer web browser
  • When using Internet Explorer on a Pentium 4 or older PC to access the web UI on a MC instance that is managing more than 1000 devices, the JavaScript watchdog dialog may occasionally appear. This dialog prompts the user to continue or stop a long-running script. To avoid this, access the MC web UI using Firefox or run Internet Explorer on a Core 2 Duo or later PC
  • Disabling AutoConfig does not stop the MC from configuring AC Pending devices. Once devices are discovered while AutoConfig is enabled, they go through the AutoConfig process.
  • Duplicate Profile can corrupt the duplicated profile if the original contains one or more entries in the USB Bridged table. Workaround: create a new profile, or export and re-import the broken profile.
  • Adding a host card to a Group will fail if the number of host cards deployed exceeds the number of clients deployed. Workaround: there was not a workaround for this issue, we recommend that you upgrade to MC 1.8.0 or newer.
