  • Points to Note

    Some important aspects to keep in mind while using Build 58.18.

    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 12.0-58.15 or 12.1 48.13. This is a harmless message and can be ignored safely.

    What's New?

    The enhancements and changes that are available in Build 58.18.

    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>
