manual Agent Update

I need to update my Agents from 10.2.2 to 10.3. But we have a lot of Novell Clients 4.91 sp3 which have problems with the update of ZAA to 10.3. Login is impossible after upgrade to 10.3.

So we first need to update all Clients to 4.91 SP5 which will take quite a while.

So I would like to create a Bundle to manually install the 10.3 Agent in case the Client 4.91 SP3 is installed locally.

But the problem is that the ZAA downloaded from the servers web page does not allow an update. It tells me that an Agent is already installed.

How can that be handled without removing the old Agent?

Should I install it as DAU or as System Account?

Thanks Klaus

Re: manual Agent Update

I'm interested in this as well. Should we do an enhancement request to have an upgrade version available to us?

Re: manual Agent Update

goot idea - but I would expect to get something like that in the far future. But my customers require a solution NOW.

I expected that somebody might have a solution like: delete that file or directory or Regkey or ... than you can install the new version on top of the current one.

Re: manual Agent Update

Did anyone follow this up?

Is there a manual update file?

x2. Going from 10.3 to 10.3.1 from the download page yields the same message. Id like to push this outside of the ZCM system updater.
