How ESET Management Agent auto-upgrade works

The Agent auto-upgrade is enabled by default and you cannot disable it.

The ESET Management Agent auto-upgrade triggers around two weeks after a newer version of ESET Management Agent is released into the repository.


note

When a newer ESET Management Agent version is available and the auto-upgrade has not occurred yet, you can initiate the Agent upgrade manually from Dashboard > Product version status.

Alternatively, you can use the Upgrade Agent Client Task.

The design of the auto-upgrade assures a phased upgrade process distributed during a longer period to prevent an increased impact on the network and managed computers.
