The "Symantec Management Platform MR4" was release to SolutionSam yesterday via an update of the Symantec.pl.xml files [1].

This SMP MR4 comes on top of the current SMP SP5 release and includes numerous fixes provided in HOWTO36013 (the SP5 pointfix rollup).

Here are some important information's on the file itself:

  • MD5 hash: 5672d657e841f474eb54dc6edbf4f606
  • Modified Date: 2011-04-29 12:32
  • File size: 36,980,345 (36MiB)
  • Version: 7.1.10

Using CreateSolnSamMirror [2] we can see the changes in the package repository with a new addition of 7 directories and 75 files.

Note that the extracts below are extracted from the pl.xml file itself, and that the package files extensions are appended the "_info" to avoid any confusion with the real files (the _info files actually contain the file name, file hash (SHA256 used in SIM) the file size and full url).

The SolutionSam tree now contains an SP5 MR4 branch shown here (for SMP core):
