Problems updating KACE agents from 7.0.763, 7.1.62, to 9.0.167
Background... We updated our appliance a few times and didn't make sure the agents were updated in the process. We now have agents ranging from 7.0.763 to 9.0.167.
I have gone in and updated the 7.0.763 agents manually by installing the new version, but I want to make sure there isn't another step to completely remove the old agent.
I am trying to create a GPO that will uninstall all versions prior to 7.2.10 using the GPO provisioning tool, but when I select 'Remove agent software' and then point the tool to the distribution that contains all of the old versions, how will the GPO know to only uninstall the old versions? It doesn't give me an option to specify which versions to uninstall and I'd love for it to not uninstall 9.0.167 in the process.
Also needing assistance with forcing the other versions to update. We have quite a few that are on 8.0.152 and 8.1.52 that are no longer checking in and not updating via the GPO that need the new agent version. Any suggestions on a script to force them to check-in and/or update?
Thanks in advance!
