A supported version of CloudSphere iQSonar is required. Refer to Snow Compatibility Matrix for versions supported by the Snow Integration Connector for CloudSphere iQSonar.

The following Snow product versions are required to support the integration connector for CloudSphere iQSonar:

  • Snow Inventory Server 5 (or later) for processing of inventory data

Updates from older versions

Warning

Updating from an SQL-based version to the REST API-based version can result in massive computer duplicates.

If you have used the Snow Integration Manager for CloudSphere iQSonar since before version SIM 5.24.1, and if you have not used HostnameOnly mode in Snow Inventory Server properly, you have to reach out to Snow support before updating CloudSphere iQsonar.
