although I have CIS 5.10 installed on my system, when I try to add this computer through ESM, instead of identifying the existing CIS installation it is trying to install CIS 5.9 (Old version). Why is ESM still having CIS 5.9 in it’s references?
Why is ESM still having CIS 5.9 in it's references?
CIS 5.10 version that was released in March didn't contain any changes related to ESM. So we decided to release this beta version with the previous CIS version. A new CIS version, which is coming soon, will contain support of Antivirus operation progress and can be downloaded through Updates Manager (when becomes available).
By the way, does the CIS version you’re using work well with ESM 2.1 beta? Please let us know if you experience any issues. Thank you!
