The major new features we have in 1.5 include Advanced Filtering and Scheduling Tasks - both of these are in Open-AudIT Enterprise (OAE) and work regardless of your server running Windows or Linux.

Advanced Filtering will allow you to filter a Report in OAE based on the existing columns. You can filter against any attribute with a value and a condition of Equals, Does Not Equal or Like. Much improved over the basic filter in/out of Open-AudIT Community (OAC).

Task Scheduling allows you to configure OAE to run a Discovery or a Report at a given hour on a given day of the week.

You can now simply and easily get a Report emailed to you in your chosen format. IE - Each Monday at 10am send me the Report "Devices Discovered in the Last 7 Days", in Excel format. You will need to configure your email settings OAE -> Menu Bar -> System -> Email. Once you've done that, you can configure Scheduled Tasks at OAE -> Menu Bar -> System -> Setup Scheduled Tasks.

You can also schedule Discovery on a subnet / day of the week / hour of the day basis.

We also have ESXi auditing over SSH now. If you have SSH credentials to an ESXi host, the Discovery process will copy the script to the target, then SSH to the target and run it with 'echo_output' set to 'y'. This will essentially echo the resulting audit XML back into the SSH session, which PHP will then process. Unfortunately it wasn't as simple as the Linux audit scripts because ESXi comes with BusyBox, but unfortunately the supplied 'wget' has the 'upload data via post' functionality removed. Essentially there is no way for us to run a script and (from the ESXi machine itself) upload the data to Open-AudIT :-( Needless to say we have it working, but I will need feedback about real world use. Also note that the Discovery on an ESXi machine may well take longer than what you're used to. In my testing it only takes a couple of minutes, but still... if you see an ESXi machine after running Discovery and it doesn't seem fully populated, give it a little while and check it again. We have yet to add local disks to the ESXi script.

Because of the way we retrieve software information from RedHat based systems, you 'might' see quite a few alerts of new software installed if you upgrade an older instance.
