are there any improvements to ten for the exchange agent or ofa that i can justify the purchase. also do you know anything about the web console, I noticed it on the install as it being an option but I couldn't find it anywhere on the veritas site or searching the web. I'm just curious cause i love all of my web consoles for all of my systems.

appreciate the help
