    SP1

    Apprentice

      Hi:

      I have been holding my temptation to upgrade to Service Pack 1.  I'm using LDMS 8.8 and setting up another machine to test it with SP1.  Recently I heard that SP2 is comming out shortly, "That may have to come from LANDesk ;-) There are a lot of good reasons to upgrade to 8.8 SP2 (SP2 should be out shortly) but it is a big upgrade so I would start the planning/testing now."

       

      Should I bother upgrading to SP1 with SP2 comming out soon?  Reason I'm asking is due to the work involved, patching, upgrading Agents etc...

          Since that was my quote     I'll try to answer. I don't work for LANDesk so the statement was based on things I hear through unofficial channels. I don't know the date but I hear it is close - yeah a relative term - but If I had to guess by the EOM.  SP2 will include new functionality (Power Management tools and a App launcher) There are two good E  learning videos on the site about both.

           

           

          So we really can't answer the question as to whether you should jump now or wait. depends on a lot of things. If it were me I would wait for SP2.  Not  for the new features, but for the fixes/patches.
