New features and changes since the release 2004

  • 2003.2: New sync component: UEM Depot Management
  • 2006.9.3: Different hashes in package validation no longer increase the FailedInstallationRetries counter by default, see section Effect of incorrect validation of packets
  • 2006.9.3: The UEM Agent and its services are shut down faster.
  • 2006.9.3: Checking for changes in the "User" directory on the server, causes less load, because the number of requests has been reduced. At least Empirum version 20.0.3 is required. For the Empirum versions 19.0.3 and 20.0.2 the hotfix to PRB35066 is required.
  • 2006.9.3: When using HTTP(S), fewer requests are sent to the server, since the client downloads specific files directly.
  • 2006.9.3: The check for existence of script files on the server can be disabled for packages in the kiosk. This leads to a significant load reduction on the depot servers, especially when using HTTP(S). This check can be deactivated via a registry key, see Check for script files for kiosk packages. (PRB34875)
