Known Issues

  1. Custom Background Patch Failure
    • Workaround: Run the JAPBackgroundPatch.exe application and manually patch/upload the correct firmware
    • The next justOS firmware release will include an upload field in the web interface to select a custom image file and automatically scale/apply that image to all/target Receivers
  2. Failure to detect SG300 model number
    • Workaround: Update the switch firmware to 1.3.7.18 or later
  3. Re-patching previously configured units out of order can create a mid-config duplicate IP address issue
    • Workarounds:
      • Do not repatch units that already have set IP addresses
      • Choose a new J+P LAN scheme for the re-run
      • Manually default units that have duplicate IP addresses, reboot the switches and re-run config
  4. Some devices may report as "Failed" firmware update, even though they succeeded
    • Workaround: Check the questionable device web interface (in a "private" browser [no-cache]) and update manually if needed
    • This would only be a few units in the system. If the majority report "Failed", then they most likely did fail to update.
  5. Configure a Device fails when the IP of the new device is adjacent to the IP of another discovered device
    • Workaround: disconnect adjacent-ip device (for example, if configuring 10.128.0.3 on a RX, 10.128.0.2 and 10.128.0.4 in the discovery list will cause a failure)

Windows on Mac hardware

We suggest that JADConfig only be run on native Windows hardware to ensure the smoothest configuration process.
We have experienced issues with virtual machines and parallels related to properly bridging the network adapter settings from the Mac to the Windows side. Ideally, the Windows adapter should show the exact same settings as the Mac adapter, but that alone does not guarantee success.
Results include: failure to discover units, failure to configure units, failure to firmware update units resulting in damage to the units, and working perfectly fine the whole way through.
Because of the nature of Mac hardware updates, success one time does not guarantee success at all times.
