Released April 2020

VMware Workspace ONE Access 20.01.0.1 is a minor patch release, resulting in abbreviated release notes. The content of the VMware Workspace ONE Access 20.01 release notes apply to version 20.01.01 as well.

What's in the Release Notes

The release notes cover the following topics:

What's New

Install Directory Sync, User Auth, and Kerberos Auth services on a Windows server that is running Workspace ONE Access 19.03 connector

The recommendation of the Windows servers for the 20.01.0.1 connectors being separate from your legacy connector servers still stands. But, in situations where it is not possible to procure a new machine, you can install 20.01.0.1 Directory Sync, User Auth, and Kerberos Auth services on a Windows server that is running Workspace ONE Access 19.03 connector and then migrate your legacy connector.  Before you install any of these services on the Windows server, you must increase the CPU and memory on the machine because two versions of the connector will be running until the migration is complete. You need to increase the CPU and memory to meet the needs of both 19.03 and 20.01.0.1 connectors per the Sizing guidelines. After the migration is complete, you can stop the 19.03 connector and uninstall it.

Sizing Requirement for the Connector

Support LDAP signing and LDAP channel binding.

See the VMware KB article 77158 Support LDAP Signing and LDAP Channel Binding with VMware Workspace ONE Access, Identity Manager.
