I assume you mean RSCD agent upgrade.
The agentctl utility is used to control agent . start/stop/restart/list/exec etc.
Yes, the exec call with it can be used to upgrade agent.
Use the recommended file deploy job to upgrade the agent, it will use agentctl -b exec as post command.
Refer to installation guide, it is documented well.
- I mean RSCD agent upgrade
- we willl use agentctl -b exec as post command
- we have good experience with this method on Win 2003
!!! we have no experience with it Win 2008 (R2) !!!
and we don't know if it works if UAC is enabled
Okay, I have definitely upgraded RSCD agents this way for Win2k8R2, but I really do not recall if UAC was enabled or not.
Are you able to install/deploy other items on the agent with it?
What is the user mapping ?
Unfortunately, don't have anything setup right now to test this either.
Hi Rohit, thank you for the Information. It works pretty good !
What about the the RSCD-agent installation on Windows Server 2008 with the Agent Bulk Installer ? What experience do you have in this field?
Sorry, but have not used Bulk Installer for win2k8 so far.
It should be fine I guess, have not heard of any issues.
Maybe someone else will be in a position to answer and present some real facts .
We set up 2 customers to use the Bulk Installer for WS2K8 R2, and it works pretty well.
UAC needs to be turned off for the Built-in Administrator account and leverage that.
if the install runs as administrator, it should work w/o disabling uac. If you want to upgrade, you should use the FDJ method from the gui.
