New External Connection: S-FTP

SFTP stands for SSH (or Secure) File Transfer Protocol. It is a way of transferring files between machines over a secure and encrypted connection. It is preferred because it has better usability across firewalls than FTPS as it uses only a single port number for all communications, including authentication and data files.

  • Restrict #items/request by model

    Will DRM 11.2 be limited to IIS as in previous versions? I have several on-prem customers that do not want MS Windows at all in their EPM stack. I know the initial 11.2.0 rollout is MS Windows only but when Linux support for EPM 11.2.0.x comes will DRM support being run on Linux?

    I checked with product management and yes, this does not change in 11.2. It is a .Net based product. Thank you.
  • Simon Powell Sunday, October 13, 2019
    What has happened to Windows Server 2016 support running IIS 10 for DRM 11.2? Is it going to be supported? We have only just started upgrading our Windows Server estate to Windows Server 2016, and Windows 2019 won't be on our roadmap for another year.
  • admin Thursday, October 17, 2019
    I reached out to product management about your question. Certification will be only Windows 2019 at this point.
    Once 11.2 is released, please refer to the certification matrix for the full, supported list. Thank you.
