Transition FTR agents from the Foglight Client (SPID) to the Agent Manager

When you transition an FTR agent from the Foglight Client (SPID) to the Agent Manager, historical data is preserved and the data is continuous.

FTR agent host machines should run either all FTR Foglight Client agents or all FTR Agent Manager agents. While a combination of agents will function, Quest does not recommend such a configuration.

The previously published scripts are available to both the SPID and Agent Manager agents, but the defined script lists are not. However, when the EU-Core_<version>.car is installed, a new Agent Manager script list is created for any existing SPID script list when there is no existing Agent Manager script list with the same name. Any changes that are made to the SPID script list after the upgrade are not reflected in the new Agent Manager script list. The SPID script list and the Agent Manager script list are not connected. An Agent Manager version of the SPID script list is made only at the time the upgrade to Foglight for FTR is performed. Select the script list for the agent. The script list for an Agent Manager FTR agent does not have to have the same name as the script list used by the Foglight Client FTR agent it is replacing.

Once activated, the data from the new agent should merge seamlessly with the historical data.

Quest recommends that the existing Foglight Client FTR agents be retained and deactivated until you are satisfied that the new Agent Manager FTR agents are configured and running properly. That way, at any time, the Agent Manager agents can be deactivated and the Foglight Client agents reactivated.
