Version 1.0.9

  • Release date: 2014-12-14

Improvements

  • SRA-108 A new command 'infinisra_tools connectivity-test' was added
    • This command verifies the connections involved in the RMR: SRA to local InfiniBox, SRA to remote InfiniBox, SRA to local RMR Appliance and SRA to local RMR Appliance to remote RMR Appliance
