Leostream Platform 9.1 Update 2 Release

Leostream Platform 9.1 – Update 2

Important Notes

Connection Broker 9.1 enables the RESTful API, by default, and therefore requires additional RAM. If you are upgrading from Connection Broker 9.0 or installing a new Connection Broker, ensure that your Connection Broker RAM is at least 8GB prior to upgrading or installing Connection Broker 9.1, respectively.


Version 7.4.13 and higher of the Leostream Agent for Windows Operating system and 5.2.10 and higher of the Leostream Agent for macOS and Linux now distinguish between older versions of RGS and newer versions of HP ZCentral Remote Boost. If you define Pools based on the Installed Protocols attribute having a text value of RGS, edit the pool to include machines with Boost installed, as well, to ensure desktops running all versions of the protocol appear in the pool.
