Release Notes November 2022

Release Date: 2022-11-22


Service Outages

To ensure the continuous improvement of the services we are providing, there will be an number of service outages taking place over the next few weeks. This will only impact very specific areas of OUTSCAN, and disruption will be kept to a minimum.

29th November 2022 07:00-11:00 CET
Both HIAB registration and Agent registration will be impacted while we migrate the necessary PKI infrastructure. The majority of the outage will be caused by DNS propagation delays.

1st December 2022 07:00-12:00 CET
Agent servers will be undergoing a database migration. During the outage it will not be possible for any Agent services to be used, such as Agent Discovery, Agent scans, nor the registration of newly installed Agents. Agents will resume normal communication once the service has been restored.

New Features


  •  Significantly improved the way HIAB's can send error reports. Where previously an email would be sent from the HIAB to Outpost24 if there was a significant error, this caused a lot of problems with mails being sent from a non-mail gateway. To improve this, and also significantly update the way these events are now handled, we have switched to a more standardized method of error reporting where error reports are sent to the following location:


    To Enable/Disable the error reporting;

    1. Log in to your HIAB and navigate to Main Menu > Settings > Server.

    2. Select the Servers tab and find the section for Error Reporting.

    3. Enabling or Disabling this will have the relevant effect on error reporting back to Outpost24.

      Only information regarding any significant device error is sent, no customer data is transmitted off of the appliance.
