Simplified subscription management in Enterprise Console

  • N°Id de l'article : 117348
  • Mis à jour : 28 avr. 2016

The option to select fixed packages has been removed in the following versions of Sophos Enterprise Console:

  • 5.2.1
  • 5.2.1 R2
  • 5.2.2
  • 5.3.0
  • 5.3.1

This functionality has been re-introduced in the release of Sophos Enterprise Console 5.4.0.

Note: If you have upgraded to 5.2.1 or above with fixed packages still in use by a subscription they will be visible in the console until they are no longer used.  See article 119240 for more information.

Applies from the following Sophos product(s) and version(s)
Enterprise Console 5.2.1

Why was this functionality removed?

We reduced the number of available packages to make management of your software subscriptions easier.  A smaller list allows for simple control and better protection.

For more information on the packages available in SEC version 5.2.1 and above see article 119216.

I need access to fixed packages, what can I do?

Sophos Enterprise Console versions 5.2.1 to 5.3.1:

If you require it, the following steps will allow the use of fixed packages:

  1. Read the warning about editing the registry
  2. On the management server open the following registry key:
    • (32 bit) HKLM\SOFTWARE\Sophos\EE\Management Tools\
    • (64 bit) HKLM\SOFTWARE\wow6432node\Sophos\EE\Management Tools\
  3. Create a new DWORD value called ShowFixedPackages
  4. Modify the data value so it is set to 1.
  5. Opening the Subscriptions dialog after setting this value (no other action required) will show the current list of fixed packages.

Note: This is a local setting only so should be done on all servers running the Management Console.

Sophos Enterprise Console version 5.4.0

If you require it, the following steps will allow the use of fixed packages:

  1. Open Sophos Enterprise Console
  2. Click on Tools | Configure Use of Fixed Packages...
  3. Tick the box 'Enable use of fixed packages' and click ok
  4. Opening the Subscriptions dialog after making this change will show the current list of fixed packages.

Note: This is a global setting and will apply to all servers running the Management Console.
Note: If the registry value required in earlier versions of Enterprise Console is present, it will override the menu option provided in SEC 5.4.0.
