Moderator Moderator
0 4 1,434

The December 2020 update of the Spider Software Services version 1.2012.2 is now available. 

All components are available in our Product and License Center.


  • SCCM connector has been improved by the following issues:
    • SQL Server 2019 version detection
    • Windows 10 build versions 
    • File export for Visual Studio
  • Due to an error in a connector instance with an import prioritization below 100, it could happen that devices were not updated. This has been now fixed.
  • The product mappings for the Oracle database dashboard have been completed. 
  • The VCenter connector has been further improved. Only connected hosts are queried, disconnected hosts are ignored. Guests with an empty hostname could lead to an error. This has been fixed. 
  • We have identified and fixed an error in Software Services December version 1.2012.1 that we uploaded earlier today.

Happy new year Mr.  Borchers,

after a successful update the version for Software Services reads like 1.2012.2.1328?

Hi @HPMeyer,

yes that is correct. That is the technical version number which includes the build number - and 1328 is correct. Usually you can just ignore that. Only 1.2012.2 is relevant here.

Kind regards,

Hi Philip,

why not just add target build numbers in future announcements?
