System requirements

System requirements

The minimum version required for installing KACE Systems Management Appliance 12.1 is 12.0. If your appliance is running an earlier version, you must update to the listed version before proceeding with the installation.

The minimum version required for upgrading the KACE Agent is 11.0. We recommend that you always use the same version of the agent and the KACE Systems Management Appliance.

Starting in version 12.0 of the appliance, earlier KACE Agent versions, such as 11.1, must be signed specifically for your appliance version. For example, if you are using KACE Agent 11.1 with the 12.1 version of the appliance, you must obtain and install the KACE Agent 11.1 KBIN file that is signed with the 12.1 appliance key. You can download signed KACE Agent KBIN files from the KACE Systems Management Appliance Software Downloads page.

NOTE: The KACE Agent RPM package can be installed on managed SUSE Linux devices only when the libxslt-tools package is installed before the agent package.

To check the appliance version number, log in to the Administrator Console and click Need Help. In the help panel that appears, at the bottom, click the circled 'i' button.

Before upgrading to or installing version 12.1, make sure that your system meets the minimum requirements. These requirements are available in the KACE Systems Management Appliance technical specifications.
