InterSystems has corrected a defect that impacts the use of X.509 private keys stored in Caché, Ensemble, and Health Connect, but only in 2018.1.1, on any platform.

This defect does not affect new installations of 2018.1.1, only upgrades to that version. It affects WS-Security, not SSL/TLS Configurations.

InterSystems has corrected a defect that can result in data integrity problems in environments that use InterSystems mirroring in conjunction with parallel dejournaling. This problem exists for currently released Caché and Ensemble versions beginning with 2017.2 and for InterSystems IRIS Data Platform version 2018.1.

In this post, I am going to detail how to set up a mirror using SSL, including generating the certificates and keys via the Public Key Infrastructure built in to InterSystems IRIS Data Platform. I did a similar post in the past for Caché, so feel free to check that out here if you are not running InterSystems IRIS. Much like the original, the goal of this is to take you from new installations to a working mirror with SSL, including a primary, backup, and DR async member, along with a mirrored database. I will not go into security recommendations or restricting access to the files. This is meant to just simply get a mirror up and running. Example screenshots are taken on a 2018.1.1 version of IRIS, so yours may look slightly different.

An installation or upgrade of Caché, Ensemble, or HealthShare on Windows could fail with the titled error if a newer version of the Microsoft Visual C++ Redistributable 2013 (x86) or (x64) is installed instead of version 12.0.30501.

If you encounter this error during an installation, you can get around it by uninstalling those versions of the redistributables in the Control Panel, then manually installing both x86 and x64 older versions directly from this link. This problem has been corrected in maintenance kits 2016.1.4 and 2016.2.2 and all released 2017 versions by devchange ALE2949. This change is documented in the 2016.1.4 maintenance release notes.

I was trying to find an article today that I knew had been posted about Wireshark installations causing problems with Studio and other Caché components. If I search the community for 'Wireshark install', the article I'm looking for does not even show up. I found it eventually in the text of one of the Digest post, but this is the article:

https://community.intersystems.com/post/wireshark-installer-could-affect-studioexe-and-csystrayexe-windows

How could that possible not show up for a search for 'Wireshark install'? I've had similar issues looking for other posts, but similarly found them in a Digest post and just didn't bother reporting it. Have others had similar problems? Can anything be done about this?
