IBM Traveler 9.0.1.15 available

 15 November 2016 20:40:22
Today IBM released a new Traveler version called 9.0.1.15 (Build: 9.0.1.15 201611100013_20).

9.0.1.15 brings this new feature:

Device Wipe options do not display in the Web Administration application for iOS 10.x devices

Apple has removed support for device wipes of iOS 10.x devices when using the built in applications for Mail, Calendar and Contacts. The Traveler data wipe option still works as before.

IBM Traveler verifies that IBM Traveler servers are in the trusted server list for all users' mail servers.

If the IBM Traveler server is not in the trusted servers list, the status code will be Yellow for the Traveler server until all of the mail servers have been updated. This check is being deployed in preparation for improved IBM Traveler security and feature enhancements in future releases.

Corrective action:
You need to add the {TravelerServerName} to the "Trusted Servers" list on the Security tab in the {MailServerName} server document.

Database constraints for improving data integrity for end users

In effort to provide improved end user experience some additional data constraints have been added to the relational database used by the IBM Traveler servers. These constraints are intended to prevent the intermittent issues sometimes seen with end users missing a particular entry or folder on their mobile device that is often resolved by performing a device reset. There is no functional change, but a schema change is required.

New 'tablerepair' tell command

In support of the improved data integrity update, a tell command has been added to facilitate repairing any users that may already have data that violates the new constraints. This is not expected to be common. During startup of the Traveler server, if you encounter errors related to inability to add database constraints then review the tell command reference for the tablerepair command for information on how to perform the table repair. Note that this is optional, there is no functional impact over previous releases if the new constraints are not added to the database.
