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.
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.
