A.2. Tungsten Replicator 6.0.4 GA (11 December 2018)

Version End of Life. 31 July 2020

Release 6.0.4 is a bugfix release.

Improvements, new features and functionality

  • Command-line Tools

    • The trepctl command previously required the -service option to be the first option on the command-line. The option can now be placed in any position on the command-line.

      Issues: CT-758

    • If no service is specified then using trepctl and multiple services are configured, then an error would be reported, but no list of potential services would be provided. This has been updated so that trepctl will output the list available services and potential commands.

      Issues: CT-759

  • Heterogeneous Replication

    • The continuent-tools-hadoop which was previously available only as a separate Github project is now included with the distribution as standard.

      Issues: CT-748

Bug Fixes

  • Installation and Deployment

    • When using tpm diag, the command would fail to parse net-ssh options.

      Issues: CT-775

    • The Net::SSH internal options have been updated to reflect changes in the latest Net::SSH release.

      Issues: CT-781

  • Heterogeneous Replication

    • Within the Oracle to MySQL ddlscan templates, the TIMESTAMP datatype in Oracle has been updated to replicate into a DATETIME within MySQL.

      Issues: CT-785

  • Core Replicator

    • Changing the state machine so that RESTORING is not a substate of OFFLINE:NORMAL, but instead of OFFLINE. While a transition from OFFLINE:NORMAL:RESTORING to ONLINE was possible (which was wrong), it will not be possible to transition from OFFLINE:RESTORING to ONLINE.

      The proper sequance of events is: OFFLINE:NORMAL --restore--> OFFLINE:RESTORING --restore_complete--> OFFLINE:NORMAL

      Issues: CT-797

    • Heartbeats would be inserted into the replication flow using UTC even if the replicator had been configured to use a different timezone

      Issues: CT-803
