What issues are resolved in DRA Hotfix


System Requirements

Administration server and DRA client computer.

For more information about version 9.0.2, see the Release Notes. For detailed information about

Installation Guide.

Installation Considerations

server computer. To remotely manage an Exchange Server 2010 or 2013 server, DRA now

requires only Powershell 2.0 and Windows Remote Management (WinRM) 2.0 to be installed on

the Administration server.
