Upgrade Agent

The Upgrade Agent task is used to upgrade ESET Management Agent to the latest version.

To prevent installation failure, ECA checks the following before installing or upgrading ESET products:

if the repository is accessible

if there is a pending restart on a client machine (for Windows systems only)

if there is enough free space on the client machine


Enter basic information about the task, such as the Name and optional Description. Task Category and Task Type are pre-selected based on your previous choice. The Task Type (see the list of all Tasks) defines the settings and the behavior for the task.


Select the check box next toI accept the terms of the application End User License Agreement and acknowledge the Privacy Policy if you agree.

Automatically reboot when needed - You can force a reboot of the client operating system, if the installation requires so.


Review the summary of configured settings and click Finish. The Client Task is now created and a pop-up window will open. We recommend that you click Create Trigger to specify when this Client Task should be executed and on what Targets. If you click Close, you can create a Trigger later. To create a trigger afterward, select the client task instance and select Run on from the drop-down menu.
