KACE Product Support Question

KACE 7.1 to be released "soon"

04/24/2017 1582 views
I was able to download the release notes for KACE 7.1 from the Quest site, The software however is not yet available. I would imagine that it will be released in the next two weeks, but don't quote me on that as the support group couldn't provide a definitive answer when I contacted them.

Supposedly the Agent communication issues are now resolved
Full support for Apple OSX Sierra (v10.12).
about 30 bug fixes or so.

A Listed issue for this version (7.1) shows that some workstations will not go into sleep mode. Why it would be released without fixing this first, I have no Idea.

  • They must have pulled it as I downloaded it and upgraded my box already.
    • I hope it wasn't a production box... :)
      • It was but haven't had any issues reported back...yet. I have a snapshot to go back to if needed.
  • it will be rereleased soon. There was an issue with the upgrade on some boxes which did not upgrade without backend interaction.

KACE 7.1.149 is now available for download from the Quest web site as of Wednesday April 26th, 2017.
There is also an updated agent. 7.1.63.

I'm currently preparing to deploy it to my test environment for certification before upgrading my production environment.

  • Have you noticed any issues so far?
    • I upgraded my test box successfully and deployed the agent to several test devices. No issues so far. but still have all the functionality to go though.
      • I wish we would have setup a test system when we first implemented... how goes the functionality testing?
  • Ours is having issues. unable to pull users from LDAP, although the system connects to ldap servers without errors. it just wont pull all the data.
