Hi,

for agent upgrade, you must use the initial setup file (for eg. OCS-NG-Windows-Agent-Setup.exe) et NOT the packaged file (generated by ocspackager).

See Wiki OCS Inventory for explanations.

Hi,

@ i use the setup downloaded here

https://github.com/OCSInventory-NG/WindowsAgent/releases/download/2.9.0.0/OCS-Windows-Agent-2.9.0.0_x64.zip

OCS-Windows-Agent-Setup-x64.exe and i confirm Download.exe not upgrade and stay in 2.8.0.0 version

have you a solution to upgrade ocs agent without GPO because all the users work from home most of the time.

Indeed, with some machines (for me about ~15 %), download.exe and / or OcsService.exe files are not updated.

It might be necessary to create a script to :

- Stop the OCS service, replace the obsolete file(s) and then Start the OCS service.

We cant use OCS to do that ! i come to try and it doesnt work i kill the servie but download proces stay running adn systray too and if you kill it you kill everything and "c'est la merde"

and we cant use GPO because all the users work from home most of the time.

I found a clean solution:
first create a package which drops the files in c: \ app for example
the executable agent setup and a powershell script

this script unisntall ocs agent and install the new version in 2.9.0.0


upgradeAgent.ps1


Start-Process -Wait "c:\app\OCS-Windows-Agent-Setup-x64.exe" -ArgumentList "/S /UPGRADE /SERVER=https://OCSINVENTORY.YOURS/OCSINVENTORY"
exit


and create a second package which creates a task which will execute the script locally:

tachePlanifie.bat


powershell -executionpolicy bypass -noprofile -command "&{ .\TachePlanifie.ps1}"


TachePlanifie.ps1


$Time = Get-Date -Format "HH:mm"

$Params = [ordered]@{
    TaskName = 'MiseAjour-AgentOCS-2.9.0.0';
    TaskPath = '\';
    Action = New-ScheduledTaskAction -Execute "Powershell.exe" -Argument "C:\app\upgradeAgent.ps1";
    Trigger = New-ScheduledTaskTrigger -Once -At $Time;
    Principal = New-ScheduledTaskPrincipal -UserId "NT AUTHORITY\SYSTEM" -RunLevel Highest;
    Description = "Mise à jour de l'agent OCS";
    Settings = New-ScheduledTaskSettingsSet -StartWhenAvailable -AllowStartIfOnBatteries -DontStopIfGoingOnBatteries;
    Force = $true;
}

Register-ScheduledTask @Params

Start-ScheduledTask -TaskName "MiseAjour-AgentOCS-2.9.0.0"


I thing it's a good solution !
