Some issues have been identified for certain customers on the 2019 R2 versions of the beacons and so for On-Premises customers running 2019 R1 or earlier beacons we recommend that you do not upgrade those beacons at this time without a specific reason to upgrade.

You can upgrade your application server and agents and these will continue to work with the 2019 R1 beacons (if they are on separate servers).  Our current recommendation is to wait for the June 2020 release FlexNet Manager Suite 2020 R1 before considering further beacon upgrades.

The next release is expected to contain some changes which will significantly improve performance during certain discovery and remote execution operations compared to the performance of beacon versions 2019 R2.

Cloud customers have been given separate guidance under the following article - https://community.flexera.com/t5/FlexNet-Manager-Release-Blog/FlexNet-Manager-Suite-update-for-March...
