So, it looks like the long discussion on the LANDESK Management Suite 9.0 Monthly Component Patches (pre SP3 only) page has been removed and posting new comments has been disabled. I've endeavoured to find this discussion elsewhere, but it appears to have vanished.
I'm hoping this is temporary until it's reinstated in a more appropriate location. If not, that is a shame. While I recognise the discussion had become quite long and wasn't always a glowing reflection on the quality of the patches, I would say it contained some useful tips and caveats for those intending to apply the current MCPs.
Also, if I may be frank, deleting a conversation without any trace or explanation is just bad community management, and perhaps even a little disrespectful to all those who had participated in it.
