6.8.0

27. April 2015

Men & Mice Announces version 6.8 of the Men & Mice Suite

Version 6.8 of the Men & Mice Suite contains a number of new features and enhancements.

Features

Subnet Discovery

The Subnet Discovery feature uses SNMP to import and synchronize subnets managed by network routers. Information such as Interface ID (VLAN ID), Interface description, Gateway, and the router name is frequently synchronized and made available in the Men & Mice Suite. This not only reduces the need to import subnets manually into Men and Mice, but keeps the information up to date without manual input.


Support for Unbound Caching DNS Servers

The management functionality of the M&M Caching appliance has been extended to Unbound Caching DNS servers in general, as long as they run on any of our supported Linux operating systems.  Unbound servers are simply added to the M&M Suite as any other of our supported DNS servers. 


Linux 64-bit support

Native 64-bit support for Linux in the Men & Mice Suite will eliminate the need for any compatibility libraries and therefore installing to a 64-bit system will now be an easier task. This will also allow Men & Mice Central to allocate more memory and therefore will enhance the performance. 


Improved support for DNSSEC on Windows 2012

The DNSSEC support on Windows 2012 has been improved, adding support for key-rollover management, as well as the ability to edit the signing parameters.

First Use Wizard
The first use wizard makes it easier for the user of the Men & Mice Suite to get started using the management solution. The First Use Wizard now probes the Active Directory to automatically add DNS and DHCP servers as well as subnets in Active Directory sites.
 
The first use wizard discovers
  • DNS servers
  • DHCP servers
  • AD subnets

When starting the management console for the first time, the user is presented with a series of dialogs which guide him through adding servers and subnets to adding license keys. 

Improvements

  • The Reverse Zone update wizard can now partially update a reverse zone
  • Search functionality has been added to the advanced DNS/DHCP server dialogs
  • System log on central running a MSSQL database now always retrieves the newest entries when opened in MMMC.
  • Men & Mice Linux installers now support systemd integration.
  • Host discovery and ARP cache scan can now be run on demand
  • Improved information about version numbers of the Men & Mice Suite shown in the update manager and help dialog
