Description:

This release includes a firmware update for the Forensic Imager (TX1) and for multiple Forensic Bridges (T6u, T7u, T8u, and Universal Bridge). The changes are described below.

Forensic Imager (TX1) - version 1.3

TX1 SD Card SHA-256 hash value: 736092e06dc8c65c1150158dc02367a31a3170357d17e080a4a7ba3fc278e8b4

New Features

Enhancements

  • The timeout to redetect destination drives after a clone duplication is now two minutes to allow more time for drives that are slow to detect. [TBL-2842]

Please note: For all version 2.0 bridge updates below, a change was made to improve the reliability of the firmware update process using TFU. The initial load of this new firmware may still show the previous issue (hang waiting for unit reset). If this occurs simply power cycle the bridge, and future firmware updates should not exhibit the same behavior. As always, please contact your Tableau reseller or OpenText Technical Support if you experience any issues during the firmware update process.
