Version: 3.7.x.x LTS

Release notes


Only use LTS19 releases (3.7.x) in combination with nevisProxy LTS19 (3.x).

If you use nevisProxy from LTS21 (4.x), use nevisAdmin LTS21 (3.8.x) instead.


LTS19 licenses have expired on 30 November 2022. Customers with an Extended Life Support (ELS) license have another 6 or 12 months of support. We recommend migrating to nevisAdmin 4 or upgrade to the LTS21 version of nevisAdmin 3.

Known issues

Since JDK version 1.8.0_322, the Glassfish container of nevisAdmin may stop responding to incoming requests after a few minutes. The reason for this is an error during the SSL handshake with certain browsers. If you are facing this issue, you may have to disable an algorithm in the file of the JDK.

Where this file is located depends on your operating system. Example: /usr/lib/jvm/jre-1.8.0/lib/security/

Search for the configuration of jdk.certpath.disabledAlgorithms in that file, and add RSASSA-PSS to disable the problematic algorithm. The configuration looks as follows:

jdk.certpath.disabledAlgorithms=MD2, MD5, SHA1 jdkCA & usage TLSServer, \
RSA keySize < 1024, DSA keySize < 1024, EC keySize < 224, \
include jdk.disabled.namedCurves, RSASSA-PSS

General upgrade instructions

After installing the nevisAdmin RPM, or upgrading the admin nevisAppliance, run the following command to ensure that nevisAdmin is redeployed:

nevisadmin redeploy

Release 3.7.5 has fixed a bug where symlinks were missing after upgrading the RPMs. However, old versions are still affected.

Proceed as follows if you are upgrading from a version earlier than 3.7.5. This example is for nevisAgent, do the same for nevisAdmin:

## install new version
rpm -i nevisagent-<new_version>-1.noarch.rpm

## check which versions are installed
rpm -qa nevisagent

## remove previous version
rpm -e nevisagent-<old_version>-1.noarch --noscripts

  • If your nevisAdmin CA has been created with a nevisAdmin version older than 3.1.4 (2012), it misses the CA flag. This may cause issues in combination with the latest nevisProxy and OpenSSL 1.1.1, as nevisProxy cannot connect to nevisAuth.
  • nevisAgent should be upgraded on all servers. The upgrade is mandatory if SNMP is used to monitor standalone nevisAuth or nevisLogRend instances.
  • If you upgrade nevisAdmin 3 from a version older than, read the release notes of all intermediate versions.
