When you select a rack that contains items that report measured values, the Power tile displays the total of all the maximum values for a time specified in the desktop client. This is now labeled Theoretical Peak (Theo. Peak) rather than Measured Peak.
Click the Power tile to view the Power History and Power Path Items for the rack.
The Power Path Items section contains tiles for each rack mount PDU. No tiles are displayed for disconnected rack mount PDUs.
In the Power Path Items section, click the tile for the rack mount PDU, then click the Power tile to view its power capacity charts.
Note: This information is also available in the desktop client tool tips.
The Power chart shows calculated values per phase: measured peak power per phase, estimated load, and potential failover load. A bar indicates the physical limitations of the device.
The Power History charts shows the measured values in more detail. You click the items in the legend to show and hide values.
Administration > User Messages option
In a Colocation environment, DCO admin users or operations users with a Colocation license can create messages to be displayed to tenants.
When you create a message, you choose the date and time you want the message to be active, and the recipients you want to see it. If you do not select recipients, all users will receive the message.
You can send a message to tenants in locations or groups you select, or only some tenants in the locations or groups you select. Use the list and the search field to narrow your selection and find the tenants you want to receive the message.
Your selections are highlighted with a green bar. Click Show selected to see the list of tenants you chose to receive the message.
When the tenant users log in, they will see the message bar at the bottom of the screen. Controls on the left side of the message minimize the message, scroll through multiple active messages, or zoom to display a long message.
Desktop client not included with ISO
The desktop client is now hosted and is no longer included with the ISO. There is no longer a strict version number match between the server and client.
You do not always need to update desktop clients when you update your Data Center Operation server. If a client update is required, a message will appear when you start the client for the first time after updating your server. The desktop client now seamlessly handles new server versions by downloading the required files the first time it connects to the server. The desktop client stores files for each version and use the files corresponding to the server version it connects to. There is also an option to download the desktop client in your profile in the web client.
Clustered environment is no longer available
Clustered Environments will no longer be available as an installation option in Data Center Operation starting with version 8.2.7. Performance, uptime, and stability, especially in scalable situations, has proven to be significantly better at one node than with several in a cluster.
There are two alternatives to achieve the same results as a cluster:
- Use EcoStruxure IT Advisor
- Disaster recovery in Data Center Operation
Note: Your clustered setup will not be saved when you upgrade to version 8.2.7. You must switch to one of these two alternatives.
Existing disaster recovery node setups must be reattached after updating to version 8.2.7.
The ETL password is now encrypted.
Active Directory integration improvements including support for mutual trust between the child and parent domain controller.
- Vizor is no longer supported and is no longer available in the app stores.
- The 8.2.7 release allows your organization to fulfill GDPR requirements.
