When upgrading the FlexNet Inventory Agent to the newest version for an on-premise customer and not using the automatic upgrade option, but using SCCM instead - is the process the same as the original deployment of the agent for Windows and *nix machines, just with newer installation files? Or is there a separate upgrade process?
I've started a new thread on just this topic -
This is a very common request and there isn't much currently available but I've collated what I can find and put in that post and would like others to add to it so that we can help anyone with the same request.
If the solution provided has helped, please mark it as such as this helps everyone to know what works.
Just FYI, I moved this post from the Publisher side to this forum as it is a FlexNet Manager related question.
For third-party deployments you basically treat the agent package the same as any other deployment package. Using a third party tool like SCCM to deploy the agent may offer additional packaging & deployment options.
Agent updates a usually deployed as update packages that remove the former version and install the new one.
I hope this helps,

If you choose to use a third party tool the uninstall will say a reboot is needed. This is not needed for the auto-upgrade process.
