Known issues

The functionality included in this release has been verified by our QA team and is considered ready to be used by customers. We are unaware of any major issues but will update this document accordingly. The following minor issues are known:

  • Slight differences in functionality may exist between the Windows and the OSX Agent. To lessen the impact on regular reporting, monitored OSX workstations are currently excluded from reports.

Supported OSX versions

  • 10.8 (Mountain Lion)
  • 10.7 (Lion)

Support for 10.5 (Leopard) and 10.6 (Snow Leopard); Asset Tracking and Agent branding will be added in early 2013.

The OSX Monitoring Agent is also free of charge while on Beta.
