Issue/Introduction



Is there a way to upgrade the agents by keeping the customized parameters?

Environment

WORKLOAD AUTOMATION AE, Release: 11.3.6
Operating System: Windows

Resolution

2 solutions to upgrade the agents by keeping the customized parameters

1) During the interactive upgrade, it asks you if you want to keep the Agent's current configuration. You can select to keep it.

2)  (recommended) Backup the <agent_install>dir/agentparm.txt file, and after agent upgrade,
compare the backed up agentparm.txt file with the new agentparm.txt file and merge the appropriate parameters into the new agentparm.txt file.
