Xoom 3.7.7 is a patch release that contains the following changes:
- Added support for scheme changes introduced in Service Optimization 8.2 and 8.3.
- Improved the handling of many-server environments. Service Optimization code that was previously used by Xoom wasn’t robust in handling the parallel access to multiple servers, resulting in unexpected errors and sometimes failure to start the Xoom service in many-server environments. Xoom now uses its own code that suitably addresses this case.
- Xoom installer now accepts an optional parameter DISABLESERVICESTART. The parameter enables the installation to complete successfully without attempting to start the Xoom service. The purpose of the new parameter is to make it easier to diagnose the problems and find the solution in rare cases where Xoom service can’t be started for whatever reason.
