Updating an agent

There are times when an agent update may be require or may be available. An update can be performed with a cmdlet.

This example updates the agent specified if there is an agent update available. See the Get-AEAgentInstances cmdlet on how to get the agent Id for the AgentId parameter.

Changing the service account password

You may have a requirement to change the password for account on a regular bases for security purposes. Changing the password for the service account can be done using a cmdlet. In addition you have the option of also re-synchronizing the agents with the new password.

In this example, the first command secures the password to the $secpasswd variable. The second command applies the new password to the service account.

In this example, the password is resynchronized on the agents associated with the service account.

Changing the SQL account password

As with changing the password for the service account, you can change both the account and password used by the Security Explorer Access Explorer server to communicate with the SQL Server database.

In this example, a service account is added to the AMER domain with the password stored in the $secpasswd variable.
