Agent Hotfix deployment Q

We've tested the hotfix for the agent (vpn conflict/slow bootup) and want to deploy it broadly.

Our Change Control board asked us a question that we couldn't answer...

So, if we move the hotfix to the current branch, and create a task to install that version of the agent, do machines download the the entire 10 MB file that is the hotfix (effectively an agent deployment), or do they get a small patch pushed down to them?

Re: Agent Hotfix deployment Q

They'll get the entire install package again - the HF takes the form of a complete install rather than a patch, meaning you can installit directly on machines without an agent.
