This topic presents procedures to silently upgrade an App Visibility agent for Java from version 10.0, or later, to the current version. You can upgrade agents using the silent upgrade procedure, as presented in this topic, and deploy the silent upgrade to several computers, or you can upgrade each agent using the procedure.
After you upgrade an agent, it runs using the same log files and configuration, and the same agent policy and recording configuration apply.
Download the following agent upgrade files from the Electronic Product Distribution site to a temporary directory on the agent computer:
You must have execute privileges on the upgrade scripts and write access to the upgrade location.
A silent upgrade requires only the -s (silent) and -d (installation directory) options. Additional options are listed in the following table.
-h or -help
Prints a help message, listing all the command options
-s or -silent
Sets the silent mode, so that the utility does not wait for arguments. If an argument is missing, the utility uses the default value.
-d or -destination <installationDirectory>
Specifies the full path to the existing ADOPsInstall directory to be upgraded.
If a directory is not specified, the installation utility uses the directory from which the installation script was invoked.
-dLogs or -deleteOldLogs
Removes existing log files from the upgraded directory and replaces them with new log files
-keepOrig or -keepOrigDirCopy
Preserves a copy of the existing ADOPsInstall directory next to the upgraded one, named ADOPsInstall.<origVerName>.<indexNumber>.old.tmp
To restore the earlier version of the agent, perform the following procedure:
The agent restarts at the state before the agent upgrade.
Upgrading the App Visibility agent does not change the agent policy files. Agent policy files are upgraded with the App Visibility server, and they contain the new features for the agents. The agent for Java continues to use the same agent policy file as before the upgrade.
If you have a single App Visibility agent installation directory that is used by multiple JVM processes, give the App Visibility agents unique names.
After you update the agent, perform the following procedures:
