globalSAN v.5.1.1 Released

Recommended Posts

globalSAN version 5.1.1 has been released to the public.

globalSAN v.5.1.1 is a free upgrade for users who already have a permanent key for the previous version. If you have a trial key, upgrading to v.5.1.1 will allow you to reset the initiator's trial period to a full 14 days. A 14-day limited trial is available for the initiator, and 30 days for Xtarget. During the initiator's trial period, only one connection may be established at a time. (An expired trial can be renewed when a new build is released.)

To purchase a permanent key for the globalSAN iSCSI Initiator, unlock the globalSAN preference pane and click the License button on the Initiator tab. Follow the on-screen instructions to purchase and retrieve the permanent key for your computer.

As of v.5.1 globalSAN installs the Xtarget component. Xtarget allows your Mac to act as an iSCSI target. For example, you can turn Thunderbolt, FireWire, Fibre Channel, USB, eSATA, and other drives into SAN storage by using your Mac to act as the storage server. A timed trial of Xtarget is available. (To safely share Xtarget's storage with multiple computers, you must use SANmp/iSANmp or Xsan.) To purchase a permanent key for the Xtarget component of globalSAN, unlock the globalSAN preference pane and click the Purchase button on the Xtarget > License tab. Follow the on-screen instructions to purchase and retrieve the permanent key for your computer.

globalSAN v.5.1.1 requires an Intel Mac running 10.6.7 or later, 10.7 or later, or 10.8 or later, and a Gigabit Ethernet connection with Cat 5e cable or better. Check the installer's readme file for version history.

What's New

  • Xtarget trial extended to 30 days

Fixed

  • Prevent OS drive from being mapped with Xtarget
  • Resolved a problem with 10.8.2 and Ivy Bridge-based Macs. This fix was originally included in a hotfix
