SolarWinds RMM: New GA Agent v10.7.12 with Antivirus Update and Backup Check Improvements

We’re pleased to let you know that we’re making a new Windows Agent generally available (GA) this week, v10.7.12. This agent release contains all the recent improvements in the v10.8.0, v10.8.1 and v10.8.2 agents related to the Antivirus Update Check and the Backup Check, so that you’re now able to roll these out across clients and devices.

Please note, the new 10.7.12 Agent does not include the recent enhancements to Patch Management and the new patch engine – these continue to be in RC at this time. 

In addition, we’re updating the v10.8.3 RC Agent to include an ‘Automation Manager’ upgrade, so it runs the latest ‘ScriptRunner’ agent, v2.7. The new version lays the groundwork for upcoming Automation Manager enhancements and bug fixes.
