Points to Note

Some important aspects to keep in mind while using Build 58.15.

NetScaler SDX Appliance

  • The message "Appliance license expired" appears when you log on to the NetScaler SDX GUI, after upgrading from any previous NetScaler version to 12.1 48.13/12.0-58.15. This is a harmless message and can be ignored safely.

What's New?

The enhancements and changes that are available in Build 58.15.

AAA-TM

  • Support to unlock locked-out user accounts
    The administrator can now unlock a locked user account by following ways:
    1. By NetScaler GUI
    - AAA user: To unlock a locked-out aaa user account by using the configuration utility, navigate to Security > AAA-Application Traffic > Users. In the data pane, select the user account to unlock, and then in the Actions drop-down list, choose Unlock.
    - Local system user: To unlock local system user using NetScaler GUI, navigate to Configuration > System > User Administration > Users. Select the user, which needs to be unlocked. In the Select Action dropdown list, select Unlock.
    NetScaler GUI Limitation:
    The external role-based authentication (RBA) users cannot be unlocked using NetScaler GUI.
    Workaround: To unlock the locked external user, you have to use command line interface or NITRO API.
    2. By CLI
    You can now unlock any locked user (aaa user/external rba user/local system user) by command line interface: unlock aaa user <username>
