In case anyone missed it, Symantec quietly released the "R13" update to Solution Center last Friday afternoon.  This includes updates for the NS itself, as well as updates for Inventory Solution, App Metering, Inventory Solution for Servers, Task Management, and Monitor Solution.  For all the details, see AKB 50726.  I've loaded it on my test box and so far no problems.  Here's hoping 13 is a lucky number!

I heard the BETA ended, but not that R13 had actually been released. Looks like its time to log a few  more test and dev hours.... :-(

Ninja Release, eh...
I am planning to install on my test VMs after I get good backups on Friday...Kyle, does your test box include all the solution components that require upgrade (task, DC, Inventory, App Metering, Monitor...) I don't see release notes for those products yet, so hoping for more information...

We don't use Monitor solution (or Task for that matter, though it is installed on that box).  To be honest I haven't done much beyond just installing them and enabling the Agent rollouts for AM (which has been sorely in need of a "real" service pack for a long time...).  I haven't done any legitimate testing so far.  On the App Metering front, they FINALLY fixed the "Comptuers Requiring App Metering Agent Install" collection to really REALLY exclude servers!  That only took 5+ years!

Thanks,

You have plenty of free time, right?  You need to get a beefy laptop with dual hard drives and 8GB and start a little mobile VM farm you can play with on your way to work every day!

Hi, The KB says I do not have permissions to it? What's going on?

I've upgraded to R13 myself, and all appears well on this side of the pond!

The link I originally added was wrong; I've updated it.

Thanks!

I had the release notes booked marked, but now Symantec had to go and play big brother and mess up another site (RIP Juice and now KB.altris.com). I have years worth of bookmarks and they they are useless. Can someone point me to the release notes and download of NS 6.0 R13?
