EPO Client assignment task

Jump to solution

I need to upgrade the agents from 4.6 to 4.8 so I am thinking about creating a client assignment task to do this. It will need to run everyday for a couple weeks to ensure all of the clients get the upgrade.

If I set the task to run everyday will it reinstall the agent on every computer every day or does check the agent version before running the task again so that it doesn't reinstall the same version?

Thanks!

A better approach might be to create a agent deployment task configured to deploy the new agent version, then assign it to all machines. You can configure it to run as often as you like.

That way when the client machines connect in, they will pick up the new task, execute it as per the schedule, and upgrade the agent. If the agent runs the task again, all that will happen is that it will see that the correct version is already installed, and exit without actually doing anything.
