AxG 7.501 Up2Date Released

Following our successful launch of 7.500, there is now Up2Date 7.501 released which addresses a few bugs and adds some backend adjustments for compatibility with the new Astaro Command Center 2.1, which is currently in open Beta testing. You can read on for the specifics of this minor Up2Date.

This is a stability release designed to strengthen your installation by addressing bugs and improving system operation. We also took the opportunity to update the Astaro Command Center device agent for better compatibility with the current 2.1 Beta of that free product.
