Offline-Mode not available

  • Create an Issue
  • Cancel

Hi,

it's been a while since my last report.

we switched our rmds to be external reachable.
since that i have never used offline mode again,
but a collegue in our branch office tried to use offline mode because i forgot to tell him new url.

there is no more a "offline mode" button in rdm-menu, so we cannot switch in offmode.

what has changed?
friday i updated our server to RDM 8.3.3 & RDMS 2.0.3

is there a problem with offmode using that versions?

tried to connect to RDMServer by RDP, started RDM & selected all Options I found with "allow offline mode",
but selection in "Administration - Data source settings" always reset - but the expiration days can be changed

am i doing something wrong or is it a bug?

Best Regards
Markus

Hi,
This is an issue that we fixed yesterday (no kidding). Could you download this version:

Okay, with 8.3.4 Offline-Mode can be activated,
but now i faced a new problem.

we use our rdms with ad-groups & ad-users.

is it possible to cache my credentials in RDM so i can open it offline without connection to AD?
Like windows-login - it also uses cached credentials if any DC is not reachable

Hi,
Do you mean cache your user specific settings?

no

on startup rdm asks for my AD-User-Credentials like Windows on Logon.
If no DC available Windows uses last known valid Credentials for my user,
but RDM keeps prompting because i have no Connection to AD and RDM cannot query the DC

to reproduce:
Use RDM-Server, specify AD-Users/Groups
For Client-RDM you now need a valid User/User-in-valid-Group to get a Connection to RDMS-DataSource.
If you close RDM, disconnect your PC/NB from Network and open up RDM you get asked for your AD-User/Pass
but you can't Login because RDM is not able to check validity.
I think it should - like Windows - cache the last valid password/hash for user X when he/she login to RDM.

But thats RDM-related not Server-related

Hi,
You're right. This was a side effect of the retry with a bad login. Don't install the v8.4 this morning. I will make a fix and update

What do you mean? 8.4 does not use the new login API. The 8.4 has the fix for this problem.

Today I can only download 8.4.0 -> so is this the fixed version?

Hi,
Yes you can install now. Sorry for the confusion. I wrote that to make sure to have the time to include the fix in the 8.4
