Bug Fixes GENERAL


Marketplace 

In the Armor Management Portal (AMP), when attempting to add an additional disk to a virtual machine in the Armor Marketplace, in some cases, an error may have been encountered and the request may have been rejected altogether. 

This is due to a known VMWare-related issue. Until the issue is resolved by VMWare, the ability to Configure Storage (add disks) has been removed from the Marketplace.

To add disks to a virtual machine, you will need to visit the VM Details page for the specific virtual machine, then access the Storage tab.

The Virtual Machines in the Marketplace documentation has been updated to reflect this change.


SSL VPN 

In the Armor Management Portal (AMP), on the SSL VPN Activity screen, there was an issue with SSL VPN activity not filtering correctly. In some instances, activity was only displaying for a single data center.

This issue has been resolved.


Account Activity 

In the Armor Management Portal (AMP) and in the Internal Management Console (IMC), there was an issue with the VM Name not displaying for log collector actions on the Account Activity screen.

This issue has been resolved.


Protection Dashboard 

In the Armor Management Portal (AMP), there was an issue with the number of Assets Protected displayed on the Protection screen not matching the virtual machines count on the Virtual Machines screen.

It was determined that the Assets Protected count does not include virtual machines created the same day.

The Protection Dashboard and ANYWHERE Protection Dashboard documentation has been updated to include this information. 


Sub-Accounts  

In the Armor Management Portal (AMP), on the Sub-Accounts screen, there was an issue with the data on this screen not filtering correctly based on status. This issue has been resolved.


Also on the Sub-Accounts screen, there was an issue with the wrong permission being tied to the mass-invitation feature. This issue has been resolved.

As a result, the new Write Mass-Invite permission has been created for the mass-invitation feature.
