BarricadeMX PLUS Upgrade Notice Nov-25-2013

Important Upgrade For BarricadeMX Plus Now Available.

This update provides a fix for a bug introduced in the last version of Haraka which causes excessive memory usage (memory leak) and a fix to the DBsocketmap daemon that could cause it to exit under rare circumstances.

The full change log can be found below.
For customers who are using BarricadeMX Plus, the current versions are now:

Package Name & Version Number
bmxplus 2.1-10

bmxplus-common 2.1-10

bmxplusd 2.1-10

bmxplus-db 2.1-10

Haraka 2.2.8-2

fsl-dbsocketmap 2.0.4-1

To upgrade to the latest version of BarricadeMX Plus:

Upgrading BarricadeMX Plus is simple and straightforward. Email delivery should be interrupted only for a very brief period of time during the update process and no messages should be lost, only delayed, by the update. Still it’s a good idea to install the updates at a relatively slow time for email processing. Many sites prefer to install updates after normal business hours.

To update or to see if you need an update for your BarricadeMX or BarricadeMX Plus system(s) simply login as root and run:

yum update

and respond by pressing “y” when prompted.

If you have more than one gateway (a cluster) please update the master gateway first and when the master gateway is finished updating, update the slave gateways one at a time, until all gateways have been updated.

If a “kernel” rpm is installed by the yum update process, please reboot your system(s) as soon as practical so the system will use the new kernel.

If you currently have a Platinum BarricadeMX Plus support contract to please contact support@fsl.com if you need assistance with the upgrade installation, or have any questions, or experience any problems.
