Enhancements and bug fixes

  • [LoadBalancing] Fixed bug when load balancing was not able to do failover from ethX interface to ethY interface. Discussed here
  • [User account] WARNING! Disabled shell access for operator user. From now on operator user will have only WebUI access. If operator user will try to access shell (via SSH or telnet) then error message "This account is currently not available" will be displayed and access will be denied. We decided to decrease operator user privileges for security reasons.
