SMG 10.8.2 is a hardware specific release for the new SMG 8390 hardware platform. Older SMG hardware systems cannot be updated to 10.8.2 and the SMG 8390 platform cannot be rolled back to the 10.8.1 as 10.8.1 does not have some hardware specific components needed by the 8390.

In some cases customers attempting to add a 8390 hardware device running 10.8.2 into an existing 10.8.1 environment find that the 10.8.2 device cannot be added to a 10.8.1 Control Center for management. The current resolution to this issue is under investigation but at the time of this writing the most straightforward way of addressing the issue is to update all SMG systems to the 10.9.0 release.


What's new in 10.8.1

  •  Authenticated NTP
  • Configurable SSH session timeout
  • Additional optional filters to the Message Audit Logs search
  • Ability to configure the text used in email delay and rejection notification messages
  • Ability to require MTA client certificates on reception
