3.3.2/ Scout Scout

3.3.2/ Portal Portal


Please be advised that Lumeta Command Centers are not backward-compatible with 3.3.2, and older Scouts. Be sure to upgrade your Scouts to

Upgrade Process

During an upgrade, please be aware that these items are purged from the Lumeta database:

  • All certificates
  • Orphaned attributes (i.e., those not associated with any device)

Release Enhancements

Certificate Reporting
  1. Added support for processing certificate chains
  2. Certificates are aged-out (i.e., removed from the database) after 48 hours of non-activity
  3. Added support to process certificate data that has been received on multiple ports
  4. Three new columns have been added to the "zone.certificate table" table: "chainid", "chainorder" and "port"

  5. The "cert" reports have been updated to include this data:

  6. Reports containing records on multiple devices will include the Chain Order of the certificates on them. A chair order of "0" means that the certificate is at the bottom of the certificate chain and it's the host certificate, which is the certificate most specific to that server.

System Health
Added product instrumentation to track system DB health relating to bloat and vacuum. See Database Health for more information.

Duplicate MAC Processing

Added support for duplicate MAC addresses. These no longer cause hosts to be erroneously discarded.

Fixed Issues

The following issues reported by customers have been fixed. 

IssueCase ID

The zone.updatetargetspace_log contains no entries, but individual zones like zone_0002.updatetargetspace_log do contain entries. Entries from individual zones will need to be made to roll up to the master log.

2New password control settings restrict how often users can change their passwords. See Password Controls in Spectre 3.3.2+ for details. The "minimum days" condition and the override of it have been fixed. PO-8695

Child devices no longer remain Active when the last observed is past the data expiration date


Empty columns and references to interfaces were removed from some database tables

5Added support for the update_target stored procedurePO-9302
6When the physical address of a switch changed after Lumeta had scanned it and saved it to the database, the associated table entry was not being properly updated. This caused a log entry error "Could not find ip to associate iftable data." The error has been corrected and the error message no longer displays.  PO-9283
7In Zones Collector drop list, the text has been made visible.

Discrepancies between summary logs (zone.updatetargetspace_log) and individual zone logs (zone_0002.updatetargetspace_log) have been corrected.


Lumeta can now identify the port on which a certificate responded



Uncalculated columns have been removed from device_values


Device with certificate chain only displays one certificate



Certificate Subject incorrect

13The asset group within Qualys is being populated with the correct IP count.
14Lumeta won’t ingest interface data about any device in a zone that lacks an interface address in the Target ListPO-9512

Known Issues

We'll make you aware of any known issues and the work-arounds here.

3Portal only:  Portal upgrade must be performed from CLI; the upgrade from GUI is not working.PO-9569

Datacontroller service is not for use by customers and will be removed in an upcoming release.

5In Reports > Browse Historical > View, reports exported to CSV produce CSV files that lack data in the columns. Only the row with column headings displays. PO-8834
6The All Devices scheduled report does not display in the Browse Historical Reports section after filters are set and cleared by the user.PO-9402

When an IP is in both the Eligible List and the Avoid List, the Avoid List must always dictate behavior. The system does not always adhere to this policy.

8Connection to McAfee DXL fails due to expired certificate. See DXL Setup for Lumeta Spectre for workaround procedure.PO-8798
9The upgrade to will clear certificates but will not clear the device profiles for certificates.PO-9677
10Mismatch between the count shown on some reports and count shown on click-through to report's details
