IT Management Suite




ITMS 8.5 RU3


Symantec has been incrementally replacing portions of the IT Management Suite console that are dependent on Microsoft Silverlight and will continue to do so in future releases.

As ITMS 8.5 RU3 release, dependencies on Microsoft Silverlight are mostly gone, if not all gone. You can now use Google Chrome to access Symantec Management Console on Windows computer.
The following functionalities of Activity Center no longer require Microsoft Silverlight:

  • Silverlight use removed from Management Views & Network Topology components:
    • Console settings
    • Computers View
    • Software View
    • Policies View
    • Jobs and Tasks View

Replacement, if any, is expected to be completed by the time that Microsoft ends support for Silverlight. Please refer to 184944 "Design changes in IT Management Suite 8.5 RU3 and RU4 caused by Microsoft Silverlight removal"
