Can someone point me in the direction of a KB or posting with details about the DirectAccess & VSE 8.8p4 issues? We've been running exactly that for over 12months & hadn't really noticed any problems...
Patch 5 is no longer coming soon. It's here. As such we should probably close this thread.
Hopefully anyone raising Patch 5 related concerns can/will do so in an appropriately new thread.
I see the post from paradroid above, which sounds intriguing. In our tests with AP we have identified some AP-related issues - see our KB81381 Known Issues article for Patch 5. But that behavior should be discussed in its own thread.
