Hi,

the EPO license from download portal works for every epo version.

  • If upgrading the EPO server take a look into the update information. There is always a minimum version of EPO and the installed extensions necessary to update to the newest version.
  • If upgrading Agent 4.6.0 to Agent 4.8.0 just update the product extension in EPO first.
    Afterwards you can upgrade the endpoints using a deployment task.

Cheers

So if you doing upgrade by agents, you have to do new task and deploy as force installing then it will upgrade in client side. for upgrading ePO agent in ePO, you have to do the second point which Troja mentioned.

Enjoy
