Upgrade the Agent Manager

Navigate to Dashboards > Administration > Cartridges > Cartridge Inventory.
In the Install Cartridge dialog box, click Browse to locate the .car file you require to upgrade the Agent Manager.

A progress message appears and, after a few moments, the Operation(s) Complete message box appears, indicating success.
Click OK to close the message box.
On the navigation panel, click Dashboards > Administration > Agents > Agent Managers.
The Deploy Agent Package dialog box opens.
After the “Agent deployment was successful.” message and a green checkmark appear in the Deploying Agent Package box (that is, after the Agent Managers have restarted), you must wait a few additional minutes for the version number of the affected Agent Manager to be updated.

Upgrade concentrators

When the Agent Manager is deployed using concentrators, all of the concentrators need to be upgraded before the downstream clients are upgraded. Otherwise, when a downstream client is restarted, it sends its upstream concentrator messages in an unknown format, making communication between the two impossible.

Consequently, the Upgrade button on the Agent Hosts dashboard is disabled for downstream clients until all of the upstream concentrators have been upgraded to the latest version.

See the Foglight Agent Manager Installation Guide for more information about running Agent Managers as concentrators.

Upgrade installations with multiple state instances

When upgrading an Agent Manager installation that has multiple state instances running, all the state instances must be upgraded simultaneously, otherwise the upgrade process fails with errors.

You must use one of the following upgrade options:

Once you finish upgrading the Agent Manager hosts, restart each of the agents that were deactivated.
