You can also upgrade the App Volumes agent silently using the Microsoft Windows Installer (MSI).

You perform a silent upgrade using the command line and you do not need to use the App Volumes installer.

Prerequisites

  • Schedule a maintenance window to ensure that there is no service degradation during the uninstall and subsequent upgrade process.
  • Upgrade the App Volumes Manager. See Upgrade App Volumes Manager.
  • Unassign all AppStacks from the target computer where you plan to upgrade the agent.

Procedure

  1. Open a Windows command prompt on your machine.
  2. In the command prompt, access the App Volumes Agent.msi file location.
  3. To upgrade the agent, use the following command:
    Option Description
    App Volumes 4 Update 1 msiexec.exe /i "App Volumes Agent.msi" /qn MANAGER_ADDR=<Manager_FQDN/IP> MANAGER_PORT=<port> EnforceSSLCertificateValidation=<0or1>
    Note: The following parameters are optional: MANAGER_ADDR, MANAGER_PORT, and EnforceSSLCertificateValidation.
    App Volumes 4 msiexec.exe /i "App Volumes Agent.msi" /qn MANAGER_ADDR=<Manager_FQDN/IP> MANAGER_PORT=<port> EnforceSSLCertificateValidation=<0or1>
    Note: All parameters are mandatory.
