7.2.0.1768
Jan 6, 2016

Improved server monitoring and alerting

  • (Mailscape) We've added Remote Probes for on-premises Exchange. Based on our popular Remote Probes for Office 365, these lightweight agents remotely test specific functionality of your Exchange product, performing the same operations that Outlook clients do and reporting back to the ENow Webserver. Remote Probes are a great way to get location-specific information about if and how a service is up and running. For example, you can put Remote Probes on user workstations at remote facilities to give you real-time performance and latency information that ties into your overall monitoring. (Remote Probes are an add-on that requires separate licenses and are installed and managed through our new Remote Probe management dashboard, also included in this release).
  • (Mailscape) Delivered an all-new Managed Availability Dashboard for Exchange 2013/2016. This dashboard demystifies Managed Availability by summarizing the escalation actions started by Managed Availability and helping administrators quickly understand why those actions were started.
  • (Uniscope) Extended support for Skype for Business Online by introducing the following new functionality tests: peer-to-peer IM conversations, Lyncdiscover client auto-configuration, and sign-in tests. Each of these tests independently verify a specific piece of the functionality in Skype for Business Online by doing exactly what desktop and mobile clients do, giving you an accurate picture of your clients' ability to connect.
  • (Uniscope) Added preview support for Skype for Business 2015, offering the same functionality as available in prior versions of Uniscope for Lync. Because there are many different hybrid and mixed-version configurations of Skype and Lync, we're labeling this as "preview support" and will be continuing to improve our support for extended topologies throughout Q1 CY16.
  • (Mailscape) Added the ability to independently monitor and alert on individual Exchange databases for the following items: free volume space, backups, replay queues, copy queues and lag time (if applicable.)
  • (Mailscape) Added preview support for Exchange 2016, with full support coming later in Q1 2016.

Gain insight through powerful new reporting

  • Over 20 new Mailscape 365 reports including usage reports for Skype for Business, SharePoint Online, Office 365 platform services, and general usage statistics!
  • New Office 365 readiness reports help you identify users whose accounts may need remediation before you enable dirsync or federation so you can fix them first and avoid problems later.
  • New Compass Reports, including "Users Who Have Never Logged In"

Product improvements and fixes

  • Added support for a Non-Domain Admin Account to run the DirSync Attribute tests.

7.2.0.1709
Dec 18, 2015

Mailscape

  • Handling of DAG DC Exceptions: Microsoft changed the way they report some types of DAG errors, resulting in Mailscape misidentifying those errors as critical events. We changed the way we parse DAG-related exceptions so that failure of one DAG member to reach a domain controller is no longer tagged as critical.
  • In some circumstances, the Mailscape monitoring dashboard was showing the same server name multiple times. This has been fixed.
  • Based on customer feedback, we have adjusted the default monitoring thresholds that Mailscape 365 uses for alerting on several Exchange Online parameters. If you have set explicit thresholds, these values will not be changed.
  • We improved handling of certain classes of exceptions that may occur during setup.
  • Mailscape, Mailscape 365, Compass, and Uniscope now require PowerShell version 3.0. Both upgrades and new installations will check for this dependency, and setup will block installation unless this version is present.
  • We fixed an issue related to credential handling for remote probe installation.

Testimonial

17513061-0-Asset-310x.png

The MailScape Support Team is one of the best I have dealt with in my 16 years as a Messaging SME. For example, the business required a report that showed all Sent and Received messages for all mailboxes on only one of the many Exchange clusters in the organization. The report needed to show Sender and Recipient information, including the Subject, Message ID, and Date and Time stamp, for the past 30 days of emails in over 7k mailboxes. After just a few hours on the phone with support, these reports were created and ready to view from the web console. Yes, that's right people, they wrote them for me. - Kryste M.
