End of Support announcement

End of Support announcement

KACE products will be retiring support for OS versions that are no longer supported by the OS vendors. KACE tries to provide extended coverage deployments and management of operating systems for as long as possible. However, it is ideal to move unsupported OS through their lifecycle from Supported, through Limited, to Discontinued support over time.

Support for Windows XP, Windows Server 2003 and Windows Vista will be Discontinued for the KACE SMA in version 8.0. Both products were previously moved to Limited support on November 1, 2016.
Support for older versions of Mac OS will be Discontinued for the KACE SMA version 8.0.
