Hi all,

Is there a quick and dirty way to update agents via SMA and GPO?  I want to update on a batch of computers first and then roll out the rest.  I also want to edit the GPO policy using the GPO provisioning tool, as of now the gpo is pushing out 167 version.

The best way for systems which already have an agent installed:
1. Go to Settings | Provisioning | Agent Update
2. delete the old package
3. upload the new package
4. reEnable the auto update

The 9.0.168 agent update is the 167 with a renewed certificate.
This means: there is no 168 agent itself!
It will roll out the 167 agents (and they are shown as this)
The cause why there is a new one so you can see that there are different agents versions.
For new deployments you need the "new" one with the valid certificate since Windows may not install the MSI with the expired certificate for security reasons depending on the settings.

I am not happy with that, since many customers, who don't read the release notes will not understand why the new bundle seems not to work.
