+x Morris - 24 May 2021 4:13 PMI've upgraded and I'm not seeing things listed in the change log:- I don't see the site Manager 8 Upgrade wizard, where is it?- On the license page, V 7 licenses can be upgraded to v 8 if eligible, how?
+x Stewart Ives - 24 May 2021 5:43 PMMorris, I'm a user just like u.I believe what Macrium is saying in their Site Manager update is that the Site Mgr 7.3.5556 update included the ability of Site Manager to use Reflect 8 and Reflect 8 Key's should the local Reflect on the Server or Workstation be upgraded to v8 separate of Site Mgr.I don't believe you will find Site Mgr upgrading the Agents to v8 yet. Probably shortly.I just upgraded a server and stepped through the upgrade to v8 on the Macrium Reflect full install on the server. It upgraded to v8 along with the assignment of a new key.The "Reflect Agent" on the server is still at v7.3.5920Hope this helps.-stew

+x Alex - 24 May 2021 7:49 PMHi All,Site Manager 8 is not yet available, but should be later this week. The release that has just gone out will allow you to use version 8 licenses and stay on version 7 - we've tried to consider different upgrade scenarios and build as much flexibility as we can into the system - Site Manager 7 will recognize version 8 Agent licenses and version 8 standalone Reflect licenses as valid, so you can upgrade the licenses without being forced into upgrading the software to continue backing upWhen Site Manager 8 is released, the upgrade process is a wizard which will take you through upgrading licenses - all Agent licenses must be upgraded before upgrading the Site Manager version, standalone Reflect licenses can be updated before upgradeSite Manager 8 will also have the ability to upgrade licenses of standalone Reflect installs and if you add a version 7 Agent license to Site Manager 8, it will attempt to upgrade itTo upgrade a standalone license, you must be running the most recent Reflect 7 version and Agent version - this is so that if you upgrade the license, to version 8, both Reflect and Site Manager will recognize it as validWe still have the ability to release Site Manager 7 updates - although ongoing feature development has shifted to Site Manager 8, Site Manager 7 will continue to receive support, bug fixes and updates required due to Windows OS changes etcIf you have any specific questions or upgrade scenarios, please let me know.
