globalSAN v.5.3.1 Released

Recommended Posts

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

globalSAN v.5.3.1 is a free upgrade for users who already have a permanent key for version 5.x. If you have a trial key for an earlier build, upgrading to v.5.3.1 will allow you to reset the initiator's trial period. 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.5.3.1 requires a genuine Apple Intel Mac running 10.8 or later, and a Gigabit Ethernet connection with Cat 5e cable or better. Check the installer's readme file for version history.

Important note! macOS High Sierra (not officially released by Apple at the time of this writing) will introduce a new security feature that requires user approval before loading new third-party kernel extensions. You must allow these signed system extensions to be used (Security & Privacy System Preferences Pane) for the "Studio Network Solutions" software you've installed, and a reboot may be required after enabling the extensions. If you also choose the Sentinel Runtime option during installation (for Xtarget licensing) you will also need to allow the system extension from "SFNT Germany GmbH," who provides the driver software for the HASP USB dongle for Xtarget licensing. "SFNT Germany GmbH" is not affiliated with SNS.

New Features & Licensing Changes

  • No new features in this release


This build is a cleanup that includes a few issues that were found, fixed, and provided on-demand to a small number of users since v.5.3 was released.

  • Addressed an issue with activation key [GLO-424]
  • Fixed an issue causing Xtarget's checkbox to be invisible in Sierra [GLO-446]
  • Fixed a KP that could occur when using CHAP under Sierra [GLO-441]

Thanks for using globalSAN!
