globalSAN v.5.2 Released

Recommended Posts

globalSAN v. (Mavericks compatibility) has been released to the public.

globalSAN v.5.2 is a free upgrade for users who already have a permanent key for version 5.x. If you have a trial key, upgrading to v.5.2 will allow you to reset the initiator's trial period to a full 14 days. During the initiator's trial period, only one connection may be established at a time and persistent connections can't be enabled. An expired trial can be renewed only when a new build is released.

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

globalSAN v.5.2 requires a genuine Apple Intel Mac running 10.6.8, 10.7, 10.8, or 10.9, and a Gigabit Ethernet connection with Cat 5e cable or better. Check the installer's readme file for version history.
