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

More than ever before, smartphones are keeping us connected both personally and professionally. Because most of us have a preference as to the ideal smartphone, IT departments are increasingly being tasked with managing a mix of business-liable and employee-liable devices. This trend has become known as the consumerization of IT.

Symantec has developed a short survey to get smartphone end users’ perspectives on this trend. We’d also like to learn more about how your employer is managing the growing use of smartphones, especially those being purchased and brought into the organization by employees. The quick five minute survey can be found here: http://bit.ly/gsdgmX.

Once you’ve taken the survey, please stay tuned to this blog as we’ll be sharing the results once the survey is complete.

You've seen the post in this community about the #Altiris chat - manned by volunteers who are Altiris Admins like you and willing to answer your questions.

The information on this report updates periodically #...
