September 25, 2018 - Important update to below alert:

BMC Software has negotiated an extension of support for Shavlik version 9.1 to provide BMC Server Automation users additional time to upgrade. With this extension, users now have until September 30, 2019 to upgrade the BMC Server Automation infrastructure and the BMC Server Automation RSCD agents running on Microsoft Windows target servers.

Users who cannot upgrade their BMC Server Automation environment and Windows targets to one of the patches/releases listed in this topic by December 31, 2018, must instead reconfigure their environment by December 31, 2018, in order for Windows patching to continue to function.

This flash and prior notification (below) are now modified to reflect this update.
