APPMANAGER FOR MICROSOFT WINDOWS OPERATING SYSTEMS 7.8.60.0
This release of AppManager for Microsoft Windows adds the following
support:

- Support for Microsoft Windows Server 2012 and Windows 8. This
release supports Windows Server 2012 and Windows 8 installed on the
agent computers.

This release includes the following enhancements:

- Discovery_NT Knowledge Script makes optional the discovery of .NET
CLR objects. The Discovery_NT script includes a new parameter:
Discover .NET Common Language Runtime (CLR) objects? You can use this
parameter to disable the discovery of .NET CLR objects to prevent
excess events caused by delta discovery, as the list of applications
that use the CLR can change quite often.
- Discovery_NT Knowledge Script makes optional the discovery of
printers. The Discovery_NT script now only discovers printers on an
AppManager agent if you enable the new Discover accessible printers?
parameter. Unlike previous releases, the default setting for this
parameter is to not discover printers. If you enable this parameter
and you have a large number of printers for a single AppManager agent,
the discovery process might time out while trying to discover the
printers.
- NT_NetworkBusy Knowledge Script allows you to specify a list of
network interfaces to exclude from monitoring. The NT_NetworkBusy
script includes the following new parameter: Network interfaces to
exclude. You can use this parameter to exclude one or more network
interfaces that do not have performance data available, or to exclude
any network interfaces that you do not want to monitor.


This release also resolves the following issues:

- General_AsciiLog Knowledge Script does not support large text files.
This release resolves an issue in which the General_Ascii script could
not handle ASCII text files that are greater than 2 GB in size. With
this release, you can run this script against ASCII text files that
are greater than 2GB (up to 12 GB) in total size, and the script
correctly reports all relevant character string matches from those
ASCII text files.
- General_AsciiLog Knowledge Script does not support file names with
Japanese characters. This release resolves an issue where the
General_AsciiLog script failed if you ran it in Japanese locales, and
if the file names entered in the File name parameter contained
Japanese characters. With this release, the script supports the use of
Japanese characters when specifying the file name.


This release is for AppManager version 7.x or later.

NetIQ Corporation recommends that you install the latest release of the
AppManager Windows Agent before you install any of this module.
