Upgrading the Flexnet Inventory Agent Third Party

Jump to solution

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?

Hi @mark_robinson,

I've started a new thread on just this topic -

https://community.flexera.com/xtqzp85664/board/message?board.id=FNMS-Discussion&message.id=663#M663

 

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.

Hi Adam,

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.
