WEBES 5.6 just got released

WEBES 5.6 has just been released. There are no release notes on HP's web site but from what I've been able to gather, the two major changes are that it now uses PostgreSQL as its embedded database instead of relying on SQL Server, and it seems to replace OSEM outright.

I don't know if I will have time to try it out this week but I'll follow-up as soon as I can. For instance, I'll test if the old OSEM monitored devices I have will work out of the box (namely, Proliants and B-Series fibre switches). I'm also curious to see if the old SQL Server database will be deleted during the upgrade. I had some interface timeouts when checking HP-UX managed systems with 5.5 and I can't wait to see if they are resolved.
