VMware Endpoint Operations Agent Upgrade Kit
Release Date: December 09, 2016
This Fling allows you to easily upgrade your Endpoint Operations (EPO) agents registered to vRealize Operations Manager (vR Ops). It works with 32/64 bit agents running on Linux and Windows. For this Fling to update the agents, the agents need to be in the "Collecting" collection state and have the version numbers of 6.2.1 or 6.3. The way this Fling works is that it uses the internal vR Ops APIs to get a full list of all installed agents and are in the "Collecting" collection state. It then upgrades those agents asynchronously. The main advantage of using this Fling is that because the process is automated, you can easily update all the agents you have running with one command.
In addition to this, there is ZERO downtime in the entire agent upgrade process.
