The newest version of OpenAdmin Tool for IDS, Version 2.22, is available now! The latest features center on a Enterprise Replication (ER) monitoring and security.
ER Plug-in Version 1.1: Version 1.1 of OAT’s ER plug-in greatly enhances OAT’s Enterprise Replication monitoring capability.
- The ER Routing Topology page has been transformed to allow monitoring of all nodes in the ER domain from a single page without having to drill-down on each node. Users can set thresholds for key ER statistics and then use the Routing Topology page to monitor alerts and profile data for each node in their domain. (Requires IDS server version 11.50xC2.)
- The ER Node Details pages have been expanded to show errors for the current node or the entire ER domain (Errors tab) and to list current values of the ER configuration parameters (Configuration tab).

Secure SQLToolbox: OAT admins can now choose to turn on an additional level of security for the SQL Toolbox pages. If “Secure SQLToolbox” is turned on, OAT users will have to re-authenticate in order to view schema data or use the SQL Editor. This additional layer of security can be used to ensure that OAT users are not automatically allowed free access to databases or tables as the user informix.
