How to push updated agents to workstations

Hi All,
I need to push out the updated agent workstations how does one create a deployment plan for this?
Is this done via the deployment option on the left of the ZCC screen.? If so which task is required Discovery tasks, Deployment Tasks, or Deployable devices?
I have attempted to follow option in the 11.4.3 manual for the deployment but the screen that they show doesn't seem to exist.
(I have 11.4.3 installed)
Thanx

Julian

Re: How to push updated agents to workstations

Deployment is for deploying the ZCM Agent to devices that do not have the ZCM agent. (Even this is only one possible way of doing this and there are normally more preferred ways of doing this...)

System Update is used to upgrade ZCM agents.

Select Configuration (not Deployment) on the left and select the
System Updates tab. In the top section labeled Available System
Updates, choose the update you want to deploy and then from the action
menu select the option to Deploy. You may have to authorize the
update prior to deploying. I typically deploy to a few selected
devices to make sure everything is running smooth and then deploy to
everything in the zone.

Re: How to push updated agents to workstations

Same here. Choose update selected device. choose a few test units. if that
goes good maybe manually deploy to a wider set. then go for it system wide.
