The IBM BigFix team is releasing a Windows Agent and Relay binary refresh for BigFix 9.5 Patch 7 (v18.104.22.168).
This version includes all of the previously announced 9.5.7 functionality and adds support for the BigFix Agent and Relay on Windows 10 Fall Creators Update (release id 1709).
IBM recommends upgrading any existing v22.214.171.124 Agents and Relays to v126.96.36.199 for any systems that are currently running the Windows 10 Fall Creators Update. The recommended environment will have v188.8.131.52 Windows Agents and Relays reporting to v9.5 Server.
Actions to Take
- Upgrade any current 9.5.7 Windows Agents and Relays using the 9.5.7 upgrade Fixlets as soon as possible.
The upgrade Fixlets for the Agents and Relays are available in BES Support version 1371 (and later).
Note: This release includes an updated version of the upgrade Fixlets, but the Windows Installation Generator on support.bigfix.com will still contain the older Windows Agent binary to allow users to install the original version of v184.108.40.206. Complete coverage of all the Agents installation methods will be available starting from 9.5 Patch 8.
