Description

Update main Perl modules for the project.

Strawberry Perl 5.20.0.1 resolves problems regarding threads, names resolver and software deployment over HTTPS but introduces, or that seems, a bug when it makes software inventory. It's needed return to Strawberry Perl 5.18.2.2 (Apr 2014).

History

#1 Updated by Tomás Abad over 3 years ago

Justification

Strawberry Perl 5.20.0.1 resolves problems regarding threads (#2533, #2124, #1875, #1781, and possibly others), name to IP resolution in Windows XP (#2190) and software deployment over HTTPS (#2401) but it introduces an important bug what makes impossible the inventory of software (#2626). That last issue is the reason to return to Strawberry Perl 5.18.2.2 in spite of the problems that it encloses.

Threads Work Around

Using Strawberry Perl 5.18.2.2 problems regarding threads will not disappear so, if you need to execute network discovery or network inventory tasks, it’s better you choose other platform than Windows to execute these tasks of FusionInventory Agent. GNU/Linux may be a good choice.

Name to IP Resolution Work Around

For a correct operation in Windows XP you must include in httpd-trust option the IP addresses of those servers that are defined in server option since FusionInventory Agent is not able to do that itself.

Deployment over HTTPS Work Around

There should not be problems about that because Strawberry Perl 5.18.2.2 has been updated (see further down) with the last Perl modules regarding that issue.
