Aspera Console 2.5.1 Release Notes

  • Product Release Date: Sep 5, 2014
  • Release Notes Updated: Sep 11, 2014


Welcome to this release of Aspera Console. Console 2.5.1 is a maintenance release, and also provides the following new feature:

  • Checksum configuration option: Aspera Console now includes an option for configuring a file checksum method in the aspera.conf file for a node.


  • #24529 - Report files are now of the type XLSX, rather than XLS. Filenames still use the .xls extension.
  • #26149 - Groups: When there are many paths among nodes, editing groups or deleting nodes can be very slow.


  • #21099 - When adding a Windows node to Console, if the administrative credentials provided are for a user who has never logged in to the machine, Console is unable to detect the node's product version. As a result, the node cannot be configured to use SSH Tunneling; and a message is displayed: "SSH Tunneling only supported on nodes running Aspera Enterprise Server 2.7 or higher.”
  • #22303 - Scheduled smart transfers that were created before upgrading continue to use the old behavior, displaying dates/times using the timezone of the transfer requester, rather than trying to look up the recipient's time zone.
  • #22396 - If email notifications are configured for specific transfer paths on a user’s Preferences > Email Notifications page, these settings are not honored when the user clicks the Rerun link on the Activity page on a transfer that started before Console was upgraded.
  • #27236 - Because Console now generates reports of the type XLSX (rather than XLS), any reports you completed before upgrading to this release of Console will no longer be accessible through the web link. However, any reports that were not completed before the upgrade (such as scheduled reports) are unaffected: if a report was configured to generate XLS, when it next runs it will generate XLSX. WORKAROUND: Click Rerun on a completed report.
  • #27371 - ADFS SAML users running Chrome 36.0 on a Windows machine are currently unable to log in. Workaround: Turn off "Extended Protection" in ADFS SAML IdP. After doing so, you may at first see ADFS SAML user login failures with an "Invalid SAML response" error and infinite redirects on login. After some time, however, the failures end.
