We're happy to announce that Version 4.0 of SANmp for Mac and Windows has been released to the public.

If you've never purchased SANmp/iSANmp, click here to download and try it free.

If you've already purchased SANmp/iSANmp, contact us to purchase the upgrade to v4. (If you purchased an EVO storage system after Oct. 31, 2011 you are eligible for free v4 upgrades. If you purchased SANmp or iSANmp after December 1, 2011 you are eligible for free v4 upgrades.)

Before installing, please note:
  • Before upgrading from any previous version of SANmp it is strongly recommended that you disconnect from the SAN and uninstall (with that version's uninstaller) any existing installations of SANmp.
  • The Client and Admin are now bundled into one installer. To install SANmp Admin, launch the SANmp installer and choose the Customize option. You'll be able to install Admin and Client at the same time with only one restart cycle.
  • If you are using SANmp to setup a new SAN, you will need to enable "Allow Unconverted SAN Volumes" in SANmp Admin to convert your disks.
  • Please review the readme.txt file and Help documents (in the installer) for more information about this new version.
