Fixed issues

The following issue is fixed in this product version:
 
  • Issue ID: SCOM-1698
    Symptom: The Citrix SCOM Management Pack for StoreFront Agent might not get upgraded during an upgrade invoked either locally on the StoreFront computer or remotely from the SCOM Operations console.

However, the previously installed agent package is not replaced and the earlier program version remains registered with the operating system.

Upgrade is available only from versions 1.4 and later. During the upgrade process, the included management packs of the earlier product version are automatically upgraded; their prior removal is not required. Your management pack customization is preserved.
