> Can we go from VSE Patch 6 (18.104.22.1685) with Agent 22.214.171.1248 to Agent 126.96.36.199 then Patch 7 and then Agent 188.8.131.523
No, you cannot.
"Agent 184.108.40.206" is where you went wrong.
The documentation associated with Patch 7 and MA 220.127.116.113 should confirm it for you.
It works on my test system to go from agent 18.104.22.1688 to agent 22.214.171.124, then Patch 7 and finally Agent 126.96.36.1993. Are you telling me that this shouldn't work as it does install in that order.
Don't like hot fixes due to the need for reboots as it relies on the user to say yes/no. It is also not easy to see from the ePO side which system installed the hot fixes. We are in a non active directory environment and can't easily fix systems if they break due to this mess.

When you installed MA 5.0.2, you fall into the VSE 8.8 P7 install requirement category that says "If you have MA 5.x you must have either MA 188.8.131.52 or MA 184.108.40.2063 installed".
This is in the P7 release notes.
I would be questioning the validity of the VSE 8.8 P7 installation. How did you perform the install?
The patch should have blocked itself from installing after detecting the installed MA version was not an acceptable one.
Sorry, I made a mistake in the subject line which I can't seem to edit. We went from Agent 220.127.116.118 & VSE 8.8i Patch 6 (1445), then upgraded to Agent 18.104.22.168, installed VSE 8.8i Patch 7 and then finally upgraded to Agent 22.214.171.1243.
This is the scenario that worked for us without any reboots as we didn't have to install any hot fixes. Does this sound like a valid install sequence.
Yes, that sequence is fine.
I edited the header for you, is it OK now?
Thanks for editing the title. It looks good.
You're welcome, hopefully someone will find the info useful.
