Upgrade to ver 22 – What a pleasure!
I posted a similar message in Dec 2013, then about upgrading to ver 21 (NIS Online). “It is always exciting to install such a heavy (and important) system. The process was automated and worked smooth in a perfect way. The old version was removed, the new version kept all my old settings. It is really a pleasure when an installation runs without any problem of any kind. Thank you, Symantec.”
Now I have installed NS v22 on top of NS Beta on my virtual machine. Still a fully automated process working smoothly – removed the old NS Beta, installed the “new” 22.214.171.124 (same as the beta). LU has updated to 126.96.36.199.
I have not encountered any problems, no “long shutdown and startup times” or other serious problems like that. I have read pro & cons about use of the clouds; I am not qualified to decide. I prefer to trust Symantec as I have done for nearly two years. What I have experienced: Light on resources, quick start, stable, simple and quick update routines.
I am not fond of the color design in NS v22, but secure computing is more important. I am “afraid” I cannot wait to install v22 on at least one of the family's real HW machines.
