Management Pack - Download/Licensing Update
At this time, we’ve decided to stop providing the free Management Pack downloads as well as any new licenses. This is part of a larger plan that we can’t fully share details about at this point. I can say that there is a defined roadmap that has investment, is supported, and looks to offer a better overall solution for our users. Otherwise, we wouldn’t make this decision. (Candidly, I’ve seen the plan and it’s pretty damn cool. But, you’ll have to wait just a little while for more details.)
If you want to be one of the first to be notified when we can share more, we encourage you to fill out this form: (http://devcentral.f5.com/Community/ManagementPackInformationRequest/tabid/1084234/Default.aspx).
While we completely understand and appreciate that some folks will be frustrated, we strongly believe that this will lead to a better overall management offering for customers. In the meantime, we’ll be sharing details about migration strategy, support options, and more. But, this is what I can say right now and I hope this helps explain the absence of forum participation.
Bottom line is that we truly appreciate all of the organizations using the Management Pack not to mention community members here at DevCentral. We’re committed to helping as much as we can, in the near and long term, and hope you’ll watch this space for more details. I hope this helps provide at least a little insight at this point. Please feel free to post your questions and we’ll do our best to answer as much as we can.
