This is just a quick note to advise that the HP MFP Digital Sending software (DSS) has been revised to version 4.18. The details for this version and 4.17 enhancements are listed in the "Read Me" which I've copied to my personal site from here.
HP Web Jetadmin was updated a few weeks ago to version 10.2.63313. Please read the "Late Breaking News" and another accompanying documentation for more information. There have been some significant changes to the installation and upgrade abilities from previous versions. As always, for large enterprise customers, test in your development before deploying into production. Notable changes include: upgrade and migration support from 8.x and earlier dropped; Windows Installer 4.5 required; etc.
Some great enhancements have been made for several of my previous enterprise clients including 64-bit server support; suppression of false positive alerts for some devices whose cover are open; improved data collection reliability and maintenance for reporting; addition of a new device modules, notably the HP ScanJet Enterprise 7000n Document Capture Workstation. Nicely done Web Jetadmin team. Thanks for all your hard work.
Are you managing a complex group structure in HP Web Jetadmin and looking for an easy way to have devices in child groups populate the parent group as an aggregate? Then view the video tutorial I put together for you here.
Have devices in child groups
Please be very careful about any auto-group you create in HP Web Jetadmin. Sometimes administrators create policies to trigger against a group which can produce unpredictable results if you're adding large groups of devices you would otherwise not prefer to configure. I strongly recommend customers test in an isolated environment first, then bring over into production afterwards. HP Web Jetadmin 10.2 facilitates this by allowing administrators to import and export groups in its most recent versions.
Take care, B.
