Since you seem to be BladeLogic Automation itself, don’t you know ?
No Bill, why would we ask you if we know , I think the answer is, we don't care if you come with @gmail.com ... LOL
Yeah - so who is asking?
The guidance I have is that Patching and Provisioning for Windows Server 2016 is planned to be validated for the next BSA update, which is BSA 8.9 Update 1 and this is targeted for April 2017
There is testing of Windows Server 2016 patching, currently underway. and an earlier announcement is possible if it goes well
Thanks Jim, this is Isaac...
Is there an agent version that will work on Windows Server 2016?
Will there be any BSA backward compatibility for patching Windows server 2016 or workaround?
We are running v8.3 soon to be updated to v8.8 and have some preview builds for server 2016 we'll be offering to our clients next month that we will need to patched - any suggestions would be appreciated.
I have not heard of any intention for support in earlier versions of BSA
BSA 8.3 is in Limited Support (think "no new updates")
When you are planning upgrade, if you want Windows 2016 support, you should plan to move to BSA 8.9 and apply HF1, or wait and upgrade to BSA 8.9 Update 1 when it is released. (Tentatively looking at May 2017)
thanks. is 8.9 supported on SuSE 11 based infrastructure for app servers ?
BSA 8.9 update 1 is compatible with BAO 7.6.03? Please let me know....
You can read the docs for the official answers
The first version of BSA Application Adapter that certifies support for BSA 8.9 is 20.16.03
And the first version of BAO that certifies support for AO Content 20.16.03 is 7.9
