RSD on Server 2012

Hi there,


Been installing EPO 5.0 on Server 2012 with SQL2012 backend.


All is well except for the RSD sensor. There is no apparent way to push the RSD to either Server 2012 or Windows 8.


I was able to successfully push it to a windows 7 system, and it does become active. But on SRV2012 or Win8 it can be installed (manually) but never becomes active as policies are not being picked up.


Now I was hoping to install and run both EPO server and RSD on a server 2012 but it seems I will have to go back to 2008R2.


Surely in the future RSD will be supported to run on Server 2012 ?

    This is correct - the RSD sensor is not supported on Win2012. At the moment I'm afraid I don't have a date for when it will be.


    HTH -

    The sensor is a Win32 native executable application that runs on the following Windows NT


    Windows XP • Windows Vista

    • Windows Server 2003 • Windows 7

    • Windows 2008


    Yes very soon Extensions for 2012 and window 8 will be available, for the time being it is not supported.
