Liongard Agent Service Account Password Limitations

The password applied to the Service Account used with Liongard cannot exceed 128 characters.

Inspector Versions

Latest (Auto-Update) Version

Liongard recommends that all partners set all Inspectors to the "Latest (Auto-Update)" version. This ensures as Liongard improves Inspectors, users get the most up-to-date Inspector version.

Legacy Inspector Versions

In the case that Liongard upgrades an Inspector Version, Liongard will offer support for the older Inspector Version for six months after the updated version is released.

Liongard will cease to push any updates to outdated Inspector Versions once the updated version is released.

Software Versions for Inspectors

Liongard seeks to support all software versions for any System Inspector; however, there are limitations. Please see below for the System Inspectors with known version limitations as well as additional information on the scope of our Inspectors:

System InspectorSupported Versions
Active DirectoryThe Active Directory Inspector has limited support when run against domain controllers running Windows Server 2008 R2 or older operating systems.

This Inspector does not support "local inspections" (i.e., when the Liongard Agent is installed on the domain controller itself) for pre-2012 OS versions.

"Remote inspections" where the Agent is installed on another server with a newer OS version are possible but require Active Directory Web Services on the target domain controller. ADWS was not included by default on older versions of Windows Server and must be installed separately and at your own discretion.

For more information, please review this documentation
