Issue/Introduction

After an upgrade, is there a need to deploy or upgrade the robots to all managed/monitored devices which we currently have probes deployed?  

Environment

Release : 9.0.2

Component : UIM - ROBOT

Resolution

The recommendation is always to be on the latest robot and hub version.
It's best to have all robots on the latest version to improve reliability and functionality.
However, the main ones to be updated are the primary, ump(s), cabi, and hub robots.
We advise to keep all robots on the same version, but remote robots will continue to operate on the older versions. The same applies to hubs.
After your upgrade is complete, you can work to update all the other robots over time.
As always, our Services team (HCL) is able to assist with upgrades and planning.
