I wanted to let you all know that as of March 11, 2018, eDiscovery Platform 9.0.1 has been released eDiscovery Platform 9.0.1 http://www.veritas.com/docs/100041628.
This release addresses several issues in the Infrastructure, System Administration, Legal Hold, Identification and Collection, Case Administration, Processing and Production/Export components identified with the eDiscovery Platform 9.0 release or earlier.
This release also provides many significant feature enhancement highlights:
Header-based single sign-on authentication for Legal Hold notices
Earlier eDiscovery Platform supported integrated Windows authentication (IWA) single sign-on (SSO) for Legal Hold authentication. Starting with 9.0.1, header-based authentication single sign-on is also supported for Legal Hold authentication. If header-based authentication is enabled, the custom HTTP header with the username provided by the configured Identity Service Provider (ISP) is used for login through a reverse proxy. The custodian is directed to the Legal Hold notice without the need to enter login credentials. For details, see 9.0.1 Legal Hold User Guide.
Support for IPv6 address formats
Earlier, eDiscovery Platform only supported IPv4 address format. Starting with 9.0.1, end-to-end workflow of eDiscovery Platform supports IP addresses in IPv4, IPv6, and dual stack mode. For details, see 9.0.1 Distributed Architecture Deployment Guide and System Administration Guide.
Onsite collection without user intervention
9.0.1 provides a programmatic way to run OnSite Collector in hidden mode without the need of any user intervention. For details, see 9.0.1 OnSite Collections Reference Card. Users can use a command as shown in the following example to launch an OnSite Collector in hidden mode:
D:\Clearwell\OnSiteCollector\exe\scandir\OnSiteCollector.exe -h where, <D:\Clearwell\OnSiteCollector> is the folder where OnSite Collector is installed.
Configurable option to process partially converted OST files
9.0.1 provides a way to process the partially converted OST files. When the esa.ost2.conversion_partial_success property is set to "true" using System > Support Features > Property Browser, the partially converted OST files are processed successfully instead of sending them to the OST_Partial_ConvertedFiles directory. By default, the value of this property is set to "false" so that the existing workflow is retained where the partially converted OST files are copied to the OST_Partial_ConvertedFiles directory. For details, see 9.0.1 Case Administration Guide.
Configurable option to generate a slip sheet for excluded items
Earlier a slip sheet was generated by default for the items of the document family that are not a part of the Production instead of completely skipping them. Starting with 9.0.1, users get a choice whether to include or exclude a slip sheet while setting up Production folders. For details, see 9.0.1 Case Administration Guide.
Improvements in archive filtering for Enterprise Vault Collection, Search, and Hold tasks
9.0.1 provides an enhancement in archive selection while creating Enterprise Vault Collection, Search, or Hold tasks. When archives are deleted on Enterprise Vault after you perform the Enterprise Vault discovery on eDiscovery Platform, these deleted archives do not appear in the Archive Picker while selecting archives to add to the Collection, Search, or Hold task. This enhancement prevents the Collection, Search, or Hold tasks resulting into Partial Success when vault store is selected instead of individual archives as the deleted archives are correctly filtered from the vault store. For details, see 9.0.1 Identification and Collection Guide.
Enhancements in collection set management
9.0.1 provides several improvements in collection set creation and management. For details, see 9.0.1 Identification and Collection Guide.
Support for collection of additional data sources
9.0.1 supports collection of FileShares hosted on Windows Server 2016. This release also supports direct FileShare collection of Microsoft Office 2016 data. The supported Microsoft Office 2016 file types are OneNote 2016, Word 2016 Documents, Excel 2016 Spreadsheets, and PowerPoint 2016 Presentations.
Users may now download a zip file in Distributed Architecture environments
Previously users in a Distributed Architecture environment were not able to download requested Export packages, such as Production, Metadata, and Native Exports. The user was given an info bubble with a location for the zipped file. In a DA environment, not all users will have permissions allowing them access to the designated location on the specified appliance. In this fix, users will have a choice. Selecting the Create downloadable (zip) file radio button on the Metadata tab on the export options window gives the user the option to download the export package, instead of accessing it from the specified appliance location. For details, see the Export and Production Guide.
