        A new version LANDesk is scheduled to be released around next month with Windows8 support. For LDMS9 there might still be a SP4 beginning next year.

         

        I must say though, that a fully patched LDMS9SP3 server works just fine Windows8

          Frank,

             Are you currently using landesk with windows 8, if so how did you get landesk installed on the client?  We are running SP3 and everytime I try to install the agent on a windows 8 computer it errors on me.

            I Managed to get the client to work. After installing the client I notices there were files missing. After comparing the ldclient directory on win8 with ldclient directory on win7, I was able to find all the missing files. Copyed the files to win8 client dir and bingo. But this is a workaround you would not want to do on many devices. Also I noticed that devices turn up with unknown OS in LDMS.

              Yes, Windows8 isnt in the detection logic of the agent yet Installing the agent is a bit of a hassle, yes, but it does work when you have it right. Better just way a couple of more weeks for LDMS9.5. Full support for Win8 there.
