Eyeglass Management

Configuration of initial Eyeglass Job status

The Eyeglass command line now provides a command to set globally the initial state of an Eyeglass created Job.  This may be used for example for the case where it is required that initial state for all Configuration Replication Jobs in Eyeglass is USER DISABLED such that manual intervention is required to Enable the Job.


By default, Eyeglass Jobs have following initial state:

AUTO: Enabled

CUSTOM: Enabled

ZONE: User Disabled

QUOTA: Enabled


Configuration of Schedules

The Eyeglass command line now provides a command to set the schedule for Configuration Replication and emailing of reports.

—————————————————–


1580: Delete and Create export within same replication cycle orphans deleted export on the target with OneFS 7.1.1.x

With OneFS 7.1.1.x, a delete and create export operation which occurs within the same replication cycle will replicate the export that was created on the next replication cycle but the export deleted on the source will not be deleted on the target.
