4. Resolved Issues

This section describes the resolved issues that are included in enPortal version 5.4.2.

  • Fixed an issue where the enPortal drop-down menu labels did not display properly if enPortal was not started from the ${InstallHome}/server/bin directory. (EN-102)
  • Corrected some installation issues that can occur on Unix platforms when the install path includes spaces. (AB-758)
  • Fixed some installation issues observed on certain Solaris platforms:
    • The /var/run directory could be a temporary filesystem (in-memory) which is cleared on reboot. As a result the service sub-directory may not exist which means the enPortal service wouldn't start. (AB-760)
    • A blank initial working directory on reboot could cause the service script to fail. (AB-760)
    • The stop.sh script did not detect running threads properly, and did not shut down enPortal. (AB-761)
  • Improved OS detection functionality in the installation process, helping to eliminate issues where a Linux distribution does not ship with the redhat-lsb package installed by default. (AB-543)
