EPO Upgrade 6.1.3 to 6.2.1

All I want to do is upgrade from 6.1.3 to 6.2.1.


I checked in 6.2.1 to the current branch of software as well as the eeagent version 1.2.1. I go to look at my client tasks and they are gone.


So the question is, how do I setup the client tasks. I want to do it safely but I cant do the agent, wait 2 weeks and then EEPC. Do I put them both in the same client task ?


So far I can find no documentation on upgrading pcs, with client tasks, in EPO from 6.1.x to 6.2.


Please help.

    I guess there is no other way...I've done it like you.

    One client task to deploy both the 1.2.1 agent and the 6.2.1 eepc software.

    2 reboots are required as described in the migration guide 23000/PD23752/en_US/eepc_620_migration_guide_en-us.pdf

    we use the following settings within the client taks for the EEPC Agent update:



    With this setting it is only needed one reboot.


    And we do work with tags and queries. Create 2 tags: e.g. ee_agent1.2.1-update and ee_eepc6.2.1-update

    Create a query which filter all systems where the ee agent is version or 1.2.1 and it has tag ee_agent1.2.1-update and not tag ee_eepc6.2.1-update

    The query should run every 15 minutes (server task). Systems which are in the query then are tagged with tag ee_eepc6.2.1-update.

    Create 2 client tasks:

    1) one with ee agent which runs only if the client system has tag ee_agent1.2.1-update

    2) one with ee eepc which runs only if the client system has tag ee_eepc6.2.1-update and ee agent versions is


    So basically that should be everything in short words.
