(Critical update) PCoIP firmware update v1.10 v184 - IBM BladeCenter HC10, CP20



Severity: Critical update

Notes:

Change history

Version 1.8 v165 - Critical update

Problems Fixed:

  • Under certain conditions the imaging engine in the Teradici device may reset. The image on the screen freezes when this occurs. The time it takes to recover
    from this reset has been reduced from 5 seconds to less than 100 milliseconds.
  • Fixed problem that occurred when a connection management system is used to establish PCoIP sessions. During this process users enter their password and each character in the password is displayed as an asterisk character ‘*’. In releases prior to 1.8 the portal did not hide non-ASCII characters.

Dependencies:

  • This release should be installed on both the IOGTA and CP20.
  • This release is not interoperable with earlier releases. A “session incompatible” error message will appear on the display if trying to connect to a peer running a release that is not equal to this version.

Version 1.7 v163

Enhancements:

  • Added Home Webpage to both host and portal devices
  • Added an Initial Setup Page to both host and portal devices in the configuration menu. This page contains configuration parameters that users must first set when using the host and portal devices. The webpage was added to simplify the out of box experience and reduce the time for initial users to establish a PCoIP session.
  • DDC/CI is a command interface extension to the DDC link present on DVI interfaces. Bridging the DDC/CI interface over PCoIP sessions is a new feature that has been tested and verified to work with the following system configuration.
  • NEC Naviset host software operating on hosts running Windows XP
  • NEC Panels (LCD4020, LCD4620, LCD5710, LCD6520) The DDC/CI interface of other panels may operate without problems. Additional testing would be required to verify this. Host software packages other than Naviset from NEC, which utilize the DDC/CI interface, may work with monitors attached over a PCoIP session. Additional testing would be required to verify this.
  • Display overlay error message on the portal monitor when a PCoIP session is active and the network interface is operating in half-duplex mode.
  • Display overlay error message on the portal monitor when video is present on the portal DVI connector that a monitor is not connected to.
  • Display overlay error message on the portal monitor when a PCoIP session is active and no video signal is present on the host DVI connector(s).
  • Enhanced the FW provisioning code to detect and prevent loading incompatible images on target devices.
  • The USB Permissions web page has been improved to support specifying both authorized and unauthorized devices. Previously the web page only supported specifying authorized devices.
  • Hardware monitor emulation is a new feature that requires an EEPROM device on the host card connected to the GPU that stores the EDID. This device provides the GPU with EDID data at times when the TERA1202 host device is not operational, which occurs during the first 10 seconds after powering on or being reset

Problems Fixed:

  • Fixed problem where image on the display connected to the CP20 freezes for a couple of seconds while the user is moving a 2D image that includes a grid
  • Updated manfacturing test to include audio
  • Fixed a proble in release 1.5 and 1.6 that occured when adding a rule for autorized and unauthorized USB devices.
  • Fixed memory corruption problem when audio is enabled on host systems loaded with Vista 64-bit operating systems that have more than 4 GB of RAM and are loaded with 64-bit Vista. Note that this fix is disabled by default. To activate this workaround select the “Enable Vista64 Mode” option on the host Permissions | Audio web page.
  • Fixed problem where image tearing and low frame update rates were observed on displays with resolutions of 1600x1200 and 1680x1050.
  • Fixed problem where RDP sessions could not be established with a Linux host running XRDP server.
  • Fixed problem where RDP sessions could not be established with a Windows 2008 host running Terminal Server.
  • Updated the auto-reconnect feature. Portals that enable this feature now re-connect to the configured host under all scenarios. In previous releases portals only reconnected after being reset or powered on but not after network outages or other conditions that caused sessions to disconnect.
  • RDP client now supports drawing solid color ellipses.
  • RDP client now correctly draws poly-line orders with negative coordinates.
  • Eliminated a problem where the message “Gateway is not reachable” incorrectly appeared on the Configuration | Network web page when the Gateway field was set equal to 0.0.0.0.
  • Fixed a problem on the Configuration | Discovery web page where users could specify an illegal configuration where Host Discovery was enabled and SLP Discovery was disabled. When a portal attempts to establish a connection in this configuration the target resets. The web page now prevents users from specifying this configuration.
  • Fixed problem where USB devices connected to the portal no longer appeared after disconnecting and reconnecting a PCoIP session. This bug was not present on hosts running Microsoft XP or Microsoft Vista.
  • Support setting session type via the CMI interface. This fix is important in unmanaged deployments.
  • Fix problem where devices were sending encrypted messages with an invalid SPI.
  • Fix problem where devices were sending SNMP trap messages to a fixed IP address.
  • Fixed problem where the network interface would fail to boot if the gateway was unreachable or invalid.
  • Fixed problem where the screen resolution of the OSD does not match to monitor. The problem caused a corrupted strip on one side of the screen or the connect window being slightly offset from the middle of the screen.
  • Fixed a problem in the stress test/scalability feature of the emulator, where the OSD user query SOAP response sent to the Connection Broker had an empty tag and label string.
  • Added HOST_IDENTITY to the emulator configuration file to support specification of the host UUID, returned in the getHostIdentity SOAP response.

Limitations: none

Dependencies:

  • This release should be installed on both the IOGTA and CP20.
  • This release is not interoperable with earlier releases. A “session incompatible” error message will appear on the display if trying to connect to a peer running a release that is not equal to this version.
