Functionality Changes

Work Order # Description
SUG82414 Added the ability to disable automatic software updates. This provides the ability to manually choose when, and to which software revision, to update.
Important: Sophos recommends you select Enable automatic updates. If you choose to only update manually, you should still apply updates in a timely manner. If Enable automatic updates is not selected:
  • Critical updates, which can include very important security enhancements, will not be automatically installed.
  • Updating to the latest revision can be a lengthy process, as each available update will be applied one at a time until the system is at the current revision, including reboots for those that require it.
  • When contacting support, you will need to update to the latest revision to properly troubleshoot any issue.
