Lights-Out maintenance release 2.0.2
Today we published a Lights-Out maintenance release 2.0.2 which fixes issues reported by our users since release of 2.0.1. See below for a complete list of all fixes. It also includes a new console feature and a server feature to monitor Windows Updates.
What’s new in Lights-Out maintenance release 2.0.2?
The console does now show a status panel at the bottom. This allows you to sign off and then connect to another server without leaving the console.
Monitor Windows Updates
We added a new option to monitor Windows Updates. This is an experimental feature. It keeps the server running while Windows Updates are installed.
Upgrading the Server
Simply download 2.0.2 on your server and run the installer. You don’t need to uninstall 2.0.0 or 2.0.1. The installer takes care of it.
Upgrading Windows Client Computers
Windows Client Computers should upgrade within 15 minutes. You can also restart the computer to trigger the upgrade.
Upgrading Apple Mac Computers
Open Safari and download the Mac installer. Run it. It automatically takes care of any previous installation.
