    Jack,

    Unfortunately we were only able to run a full QA cycle on the latest release. Currently we don't have plans to certify older C:D Windows versions on Win2019.

    Thanks,

    Thank you very much.

    For those previous versions of ConnnectDirect, are they supporting MS Windows server 2019?

    Thank you for your patience as we worked on this enhancement request. I'm pleased to announce that we have added Windows 2019 certification with the v6.1 release of Connect:Direct which became generally available on 5/8/20. Please visit Passport Advantage to download this version and start gaining the benefits of this enhancement.

    Sincerely,

    Currently, we know that CD File agent 1.4.01 supports Windows server 2019.

    May I know the same will apply to Connect:Direct as CD File agent is bundled with C:D Windows?

    Thank you for reaching out for a status update on this enhancement request. This item is on the roadmap and we're hopeful of delivering it in the near future. We can't discuss target dates for forward looking content in public forums, but if you'd like to reach out to me directly I'd be happy to go into further detail.

    Sincerely,

    Any update here ? When will CD officially support WS2019?

    Thank you for opening this enhancement request with IBM.  I have reviewed it with my team and believe this would be a valuable enhancement to Connect:Direct.  I will accept this request as an uncommitted candidate and we will look to add it to the C:D roadmap moving forward.


    Sincerely,
