In TKU November the pattern has had checks added to ensure that one of the trigger processes does not cross-match with VERITAS DirectAssist.

Versioning for Exchange 2003 and earlier and 2007 and later is now performed in separate code sections. Exchange 2007 and later server SIs now also have 'server_roles' attribute added to the SI to list all server_roles the Exchange Server is running.
