Announcing HSI 6.0.0.p9 and HSI 5.0.2.p8 

(Apr 4, 2018) HSI Version 6.0.0.p9 is now available for HPSS Release 7.5.1 sites. 

 HSI 5.0.2.p8 is now available for HPSS Release 7.4.3 sites.


NOTE

HSI and HTAR support is no longer provided directly by Gleicher Enterprises.  
As of March 8 2017, HSI/HTAR support for HPSS sites is transitioning to the National Energy Research Scientific Computing Center (NERSC).  See the HSI support page for more information or to open a ticket to request a copy of the software.


6.0.0.p9 contains one new feature, and bugfixes for problems that have been identified in previous versions, and we encourage all sites to upgrade to the new version.  A list of the changes in this release can be found here.


5.0.2.p8 contains bugfixes for problems that have been identified in previous versions since release 5.0.2.p4.  A list of the changes in this release can be found here.  Note that HSI for HPSS 7.4.3 is now in maintenance mode, and no new features will be added to this version.

Sites are strongly encouraged to upgrade to HPSS 7.5.1 as soon as possible in order to take advantage of the many new features that have been added to HPSS and HSI.

HPSS site administrators can obtain the HSI/HTAR software by submitting a support request ticket via the HSI Bugs/Support Page.


New Features in 6.0.0.p9


The primary feature added in this release is the ability for HPSS admins to optionally restrict HSI commands so that they are only available to specific users and/or groups.
