FAQ

How do I obtain Update 1?

Update 1 is no longer being distributed to new L.E.M.S.S. installs, any existing installs are not impacted and they will continue to contain the 7.0.0.05 version. Please refer to L.E.M.S.S. 7.0 Service Pack 1 Agent Update 2 for the latest Agent release.

I have existing endpoints on Agent Version 7.0.0.4, how do I ensure all fixes are applied?

In order to ensure the endpoint receives all applicable fixes, including the fix for items 86596 and 87321 above, users will have to apply the patch "C - Lumension EMSS Agent for Windows Driver Update" to applicable endpoints.

How will I know if this update is applied successfully?

Navigate to the Manage > Endpoints page in the L.E.M.S.S. interface. The "Agent Version" for applicable Windows endpoints should read "7.0.0.5"
