Flexible patch panel start numbering location and direction in v9.7.0

We are excited to announce following changes/additions in v9.7.0.

Flexible patch panel start numbering location and direction


Patch panel cable management just got easier and more flexible with this version of Device42! You can now choose where location of the first port (and module in a modular chassis) and what direction the ports are numbered.
This applies to both singular and modular patch panels. In the modular patch panels, modules are placed according to the chosen configuration. This also applies to a module within a modular chassis (module model has its own config). With this change, you will be able to build out more custom configs on how patch panels are laid out in your organization.


Change hostname for your Device42 appliance

Under appliance manager, you can now change the hostname of the appliance. Requires a reboot to take effect.

Added IPMI test tool to appliance manager

IPMI device not being detected correctly? You can now send us an output from the appliance manager so we can add support for it.
