Improvements in the Area of Usability
Univention support info
The “Univention Support Info” tool detects a variety of system information about the UCS system in use that the Univention Support team requires to swiftly analyze problems and locate the relevant error sources. This can include information such as ongoing processes, open network connections, file system usage, log files, and system settings. This program is no longer required to be installed individually because it is pre-installed on all UCS instances and may be utilized by users.
You can deactivate individual tests within the system diagnostics via UCR. For example, a test that does not make sense to carry out in your environment should be excluded. The format of the UCR variable you need for this is:
ucr set diagnostic/check/disable/TEST_NAME = true
Visualization of operational attributes
Operational attributes are internal OpenLDAP database attributes. The database stores some object properties, such as when they were created, who created them, who last edited them, and so on. The Directory Manager extension included in the UCS 5.0-3 version now allows you to visualize the values using a configuration on the front end, supporting a variety of support scenarios.
Univention has also improved the usability and provision of information for detecting errors when changing server passwords. Additional information about all steps taken to change the password is now saved to make it easier for users to analyze failed server password changes.
