Loftware Connector for SAP Applications Version 3.0.2
Release Notes - November 2017
What new features are available in this release?
- Operating System Support: Added support for Windows Server 2016 non-clustered, as well as support for IIS 10.
- Note: As of Loftware Connector® for SAP® Applications (LCfSAP) version 3.0.0, Windows Server 2003 is no longer available.
- Note: Mobile devices running Windows 10 are not supported.
Please refer to the Loftware Connector for SAP® Applications Product Guide for a complete list of supported operating systems.
- Java: Added support for Java 1.8 and simplified the install process by now packaging Java 1.8 with the CLI install.
- Troubleshooting: Enhanced logging by the lcfsap.jar so that it logs the moment it is invoked, before any other work is performed by the jar file.
- The CLI that is packaged with LCfSAP 3.0.2 is not supported on HP-UX or AIX. Customers that choose to upgrade to LCfSAP 3.0.2 should not deploy the new CLI to their SAP server. They should continue using the 3.0.1 version of the CLI, which is compatible with LCfSAP 3.0.2.
- When device timeout errors occur between LPS and a printer during processing, the timeout period may extend beyond the SAP Connector default timeout of 2 minutes. In this event, the error condition will not be relayed from LPS to SAP Connector, and SAP Connector will post a generic timeout error, without information related the device condition.
- Users can work around this condition through an LPS setting. Modifying the PendingTimeout value in the WDNT section of the LLMWDN32.ini configuration file, to a value less than 120 seconds, should return the expected error condition to SAP Connector, and get posted to the Connector logs.
- Current LLMWDN32.ini default value:
- On a cluster install with LPS 11.1 or later, LCfSAP 3.0 or later fails to add LCfSAP and LwEntUp cluster resources. To resolve this issue, execute the vcredist_x86.exe included in the installation package on all nodes prior to executing setup.exe.
