Altiris 6.9 or 7.1
I am new to the altiris/symantec world and have recently inherited an environment that is managed by the Altiris DS 6.8 version. I am currently looking into upgrading the version. What I noticed is that 6.9 basically the same thing as 6.8 while 7.1 is an entirely different beast. I am just looking for opinions on whether 7.1 is worth it for a small environment of only 400 or so computers.
Also I have been reading up on migrating the database to a new server. I found that if i don't keep the same server name/ip address it can cause some extra work. What exactly does the database of this hold? I may just start from scratch.
