De nouvelles améliorations sont disponibles

Tranquil IT Systems, CARDON Vincent
logo-wapt-952*320 Bonjour à tous, L'équipe de Tranquil IT Systems a le plaisir de vous proposer la release WAPT 1.3.8. C'est une version mineure qui intègre un grand nombre d'améliorations techniques, sécuritaires et ergonomiques à Wapt, ainsi que deux correctifs de sécurité (cf. changelog ci-dessous). Désormais les distributions Redhat7 et CentOS7 sont également supportées par Wapt, avec SELinux activé. La procédure de mise à jour est décrite ici: Si vous avez des questions lors de la mise à jour, vous pouvez trouver de l'aide sur le forum ou sur la mailing liste Nous en profitons pour vous annoncer que Simon FONTENEAU du blog a rejoint Tranquil IT Systems, notamment pour travailler sur WAPT et les prestations que nous pouvons vous proposer (formations, support, déploiement, etc.). Cordialement, L'équipe TIS

Security :

  • [SECURITY] Fix inheritance of rights on wapt root folder for Windows 10 during setup when installed in c:\wapt
    • On Windows 10, cacls.exe does not work and does not remove "Authenticated Users" from c:\wapt. cacls.exe has been replaced by icacls.exe.
  • On pre-wapt 1.3.7 systems, you can fix this by running the following command, or upgrade to wapt 1.3.8 (you may check : icacls.exe  c:\wapt  /inheritance:r This can be achieved with a GPO, or a wapt package
  • Note : in next versions of Wapt, the default install path of wapt will be changed from root folder c:\wapt to a more standard c:\ Program FIles\wapt.
  • By default, waptsetup.exe / waptsetup-tis.exe don't distribute certificates to avoid to deploy directly packages from Tranquil IT Systems. waptagent.exe by default distributes the certificates that are installed on the mangement desktop creating the waptagent.

Core changes

  •  The database structure has changed between 1.3.8 and to includes additional attributes from packages : signer, signer_fingerprint, locale, and maturity. Signer and signer_fingerprint are populated when signing the package to identify the origin. This means local wapt database is upgraded when first starting wapt and this is not backward compatible.
  • Installers have a limited set of options, the most common use of Wapt is priviledged.
  • [ADD] 3 new parameters for the waptexit policy behaviour : 'hiberboot_enabled','max_gpo_script_wait','pre_shutdown_timeout' recommended settings for waptexit / shutdown policy             #       hiberboot_enabled = 0             #       max_gpo_script_wait = 180             #       pre_shutdown_timeout = 180 These parameters are not set by default and should be added to wapt-get.inin [global] section if needed
  • [UPD] Use user's waptconsole.ini configuration file instead of wapt-get.ini for the commands targeted to package development ('sources','make-template', 'make-host-template','make-group-template','build-package','sign-package','build-upload','duplicate','edit','edit-host','upload-package','update-packages'. This avoids the need to write these parameters in wapt-get.ini on the development workstation. These parameters are not shared across multiple users on same machine. One use case is to allow multiple profiles (key, upload location) depending on the maturity of package (development, test, production...)


  • [ADD] helper functions dir_is_empty, file_is_locked, service_restart  and WindowsVersions class
  • [UPD] Added referer and user_agent in "wget" and "wgets"
