If you do not want to push the upgrade agent bundle from the vCenter Hyperic server, you can use this process to upgrade the bundle in your vCenter Hyperic agent installation.

When you update an agent bundle, your previous agent configuration is preserved. The AgentHome/conf/agent.properties file is not overwritten.

1

Copy the agent-5.x.y-nnn.tgz or agent-5.x.y-nnn.zip agent bundle from ServerHome/hq-engine/hq-server/webapps/ROOT/WEB-INF/hq-agent-bundles to AgentHome/bundles.

2

Unpack the agent bundle.

3

Edit the rollback.properties file in AgentHome/conf to specify the location of the new agent bundle and the bundle it will replace.
