Excellent documentation, but a bit hidden in the download section (only appearing for ESM 4.5 SP1 and SP3). I'm glad to read this documentation is also applicable to ESM 5.0 (according to the title of this thread)

Just checked--the document is associated with all the relevant ESM v4.5 and 5.0 releases, including appliances. You can tell this by looking at the categories associated with the document.

Yes, I know and thanks for your confirmation but I was speaking about the ArcSight support website download section.

As of October 31, 2011, the Doc Library on the Support Portal will no longer be updated (though the existing content will remain in place for a while longer). The ArcSight Product Documentation community on Protect 724 should be regarded as the source of truth for official ArcSight product documentation. Thanks very much for the feedback, and please keep it coming.

Actually, I just realized that you were talking about the Download Server, not the Doc Library. Sorry about that. In any case, our new organizational structure on Protect 724 should make it easier to see exactly which docs pertain to which releases. Again, thanks for the feedback, and please keep it coming.

No, you're right I was talking about and I see the message at the top of the page saying it's now deprecated in favor to this documentation section. So thanks for this additional notification.
