    How to manage Windows 2003 and Windows 2000 servers with BSA 8.8?


    ANSWER:

     

    Windows 2003 was supported with BSA 8.7. 87 Patch4 RSCD agent can be used with 2003.

    BSA RSCD agents earlier than BSA 8.1 with cannot be used with BSA 8.8. Please find the documentation link below :
