The ASU Version 5.1B-5 kit provides
enhancements and corrections for problems found
in the ASU Version 5.1B-4 software, including
ECO2 and in earlier versions of the ASU
Some of the enhancements and corrections in the
ASU Version 5.1B-5 kit are:
- ASU can be configured as a member server to
Windows Server 2008 domain.
- A new registry parameter, RequireStrongKey,
specifies that an ASU server must use a strong
(128 bit) session key for encryption during
secure channel operations when this parameter is
set to 1. If the domain controller on the other
side of the channel does not support strong (128
bit) session keys, then the ASU server will
refuse to establish a secure channel.
- ASU file and printer shares can now be
accessed from a Windows Vista SP1 workstation.
However, Windows Vista SP1 workstation cannot be
joined to an ASU domain.
- A new command called eautil is available to
manipulate extended attributes of objects that
are used by OS/2 clients. This command is
modeled after the OS/2 eautil command.
- A new command called convea is available to
convert extended attribute files. This command
may also be used to list the contents of
extended attribute files from an OpenVMS system
without converting the files.
- The default value of the rc4encryption
parameter in the [netlogon] section of
lanman.ini file, has been changed from "no" to
"yes". The new default value of "yes" implies
that if a client or server requests RC4
encryption, then ASU will use RC4 encryption to
encrypt password information. Setting the value
of the parameter to "no" will cause ASU to use

and corrected problems.
