We have not had an update to our System Administration video series since Version 8. System Administration had not significantly changed over the various new releases, so we did not feel the need to do an update. Our Version 8 stuff is still relevant and useful no matter what Version of ShoreTel you are on. We actually installed our first ShoreTel system on Version 3 Build 3.1.11100 back in the day when Shoreline only had Analog phones! You might be interested to know that first system is still installed and we have continued to upgrade it over the last nine years! We had to make a hardware change for the first time recently, but come on! 9 years on the same system! That is amazing. Talk about ROI! We have watched with old blue Shoreline become the new Orange ShoreTel while steadily improving the functionality, scale, and architecture over the years! Somewhere around Version 4, we grew IP phones, but System Administration was relatively the same. When we moved from the old Microsoft Access Database in Version 7 to the MySQL database in Version 8, System administration was still basically the same, but we finally cranked out a tutorial revision. Now, as the solution matures development that was taking shape in Version 10 and 11, we figure it is about time to do a new System Administration Series, so we are starting to crank out Version 12!
