KEPServerEX

Release Version: 6.1.601.0
Release Date: 4/4/2017

General
  • Windows Server 2016 is now supported.
Install
  • Two new options are available during Vertical Suite Selection for installs on a machine that does not currently have KEPServerEX.
    • Typical: Select this option to install all drivers and advanced plug-ins.
    • Custom: Select this option to specify which drivers and advanced plug-ins to install.
 
Server Administration
  • Fixed an issue where the CORS Allowed Origins string could be truncated.
  • User Manager now provides more granular control over project modification user permissions. The refined permission functionality can be applied to users who are configuring the server through either the Server Configuration user interface or the
  • Configuration API service.
  • The server was upgraded to the latest available version of OpenSSL.
  • Server Configuration
  • Fixed slow loading times for projects with high tag group counts.
  • Signed exponents are supported for JSON load.
  • Fixed an issue where exporting large scaling values would result in the number being expressed in scientific notation and losing decimal precision.
  • Implemented a Restore Defaults button to allow any property with a defined default to be reset.
 
ThingWorx Native Client Interface
  • Introduced a new connection mechanism that is enabled by default. In this mode, the server will bind directly with Remote Things when transferring data to ThingWorx.
  • Fixed an issue where Statistics tags would update at a much faster rate than configured. Statistics tags now follow the configured update rate.
  • Significantly improved performance in Legacy Mode to support 10k updates per second.
  • In Legacy Mode, the KEPServerEX event log now exports to ThingWorx.
 
OPC UA Server
  • Fixed an issue where the OPC UA server could not resolve _InternalTags.
  • Fixed a browse response issue where BrowseName was populated with FullName.
  • Resolved an issue where the server responded with an error even though the correct path was used in a TranslateBrowsePathsToNodeIds request.
  • Escaped spaces in OPC UA URLs caused issues for certain clients when connecting with security. Upgrading from 6.0 to 6.1 requires re-issuing certificates to fix. Upgrading from V5.X to 6.1 re-issues the certificate automatically.
  • Fixed an issue where the UA Server included a Data Change Filter extension object in CreateMonitoredItem and ModifyMonitoredItem responses. It now encodes as an empty extension object.
 
NIO/PDB Toolkit
  • Resolved a defect introduced in a previous release where the server was not correctly cleaning up the iFIX Native Interface. This would leave parts of iFIX Database Manager running and prevent it from closing correctly or reopening.
 
Configuration API
  • The Event Log can now be retrieved via a REST call. See help for details on configurable parameters.
  • Online help page now generates reference for Advanced Plug-ins and dynamic properties.
  • Project Properties can now be configured through the API.
  • Added support for the IoT Gateway.
