Sensor version 1.3.0 is now deprecated due to an issue with error reporting. We recommend upgrading to version 1.3.1 as soon as possible.
If you are upgrading from an RPM package from version 1.2.7 to 1.2.11, this and future releases fix a problem with the packaging that can cause the rpm command to return an error and old versions to be left in the RPM database. You can address these issues by upgrading with the following command:
rpm -Uvh --nopreun --replacepkgs canary_forwarder-1.3.0-12364.x86_64.rpm
If you use yum and you have configured it to access the Red Canary RPM repository, you can download the RPM to your current working directory before executing the previous command:
yum --downloadonly --downloaddir=. reinstall canary_forwarder
- The RPM preun script no longer returns an error after successful execution. In previous versions, this script always returned an error, even if the installation was successful.
- Previously, persistent server connectivity issues could lock some endpoints in Safe Mode, which required an administrator to restart the process. Endpoints now automatically restart when server communications are restored, so you don’t need to manually restart them.
- Sensors no longer stop working when the Linux kernel patch number exceeds 255.
- The parser no longer produces an error if the linux distro name and pretty_name fields contain identical strings.
