To support enhanced security, we will be adding new encryption to communication between DX NetOps components.

    DX NetOps 21.2 will include the following components:

    • DX NetOps Performance Management

    Catalin,

    21.2 is not released.  Will be another month or two before it's ready.

    This is more of an announcement that when it releases, all parts of NetOps will need to be upgraded to support the new security changes between products.  We wanted to inform customers so they can plan accordingly to make sure all parts of NetOps can be upgraded when 21.2 releases.

    We are adding authentication to many places that didn't have it before, so interoperability between products can stop if you don't upgrade PM, Spectrum, NFA, VNA, etc at the same time.

    Sounds great, although this is a massive piece of work - on both sides.
    Reassure me that an in-line upgrade has been tested, and works, for a DX NetOps installation that is configured to use HTTPS throughout, please? The UIM upgrades seemed to run into some issue in this area and we'd like to avoid a repeat.

    That's the plan Glenn, to test all NetOps and upgrade it all as one with HTTPS.
