What’s New

Management and Security Server version 12.6 includes these features — new since 12.5.

  • Metering is capable of high availability in a clustered MSS deployment.

    A minimum of three MSS servers is required to replicate the metering license data, which is backed by a database.

  • Metering is always installed with Management and Security Server.

    The check box in the Initial Configuration Utility and the Configuration Update Utility was removed.

  • Redesigned Terminal ID Manager Console.

    The new interface offers improved performance when managing very large ID pools (more than 1000 IDs in a pool), and it allows pool information to be downloaded as a CSV file.

    A separate Terminal ID Manager Guide is available.

  • Added the ability to configure multiple DCAS servers for use with Automated Sign-on for Mainframe.

  • Management and Security Server is installed using the automated installer for 64-bit systems on Linux, UNIX, or Windows. The manual installation files were removed.

    If you cannot use an automated installer, contact Support.

  • Updated Open JDK to Azul Zulu 8u212.

  • Updated Tomcat to 9.0.19.


  • The Metering Server and the Terminal ID Manager are no longer available as a deployable war files that can live on WebSphere or external Tomcat.

  • Management and Security Server requires 3.40 GHz (4 cores) and 8 GB of RAM to run efficiently. While previous versions may have run successfully on less, we recommend you allot 8 GB of RAM for a successful installation.
