Is there a recommended way to upgrade Bamboo remote-agents?

Or do I have to remove the service (using Windows Server 2008) and the agent and then install the new agent exactly like I did the old one?

Or can I maybe even just continue using the old agent when upgrading Bamboo?

I couldn't find any up-to-date information on this.

Agents have an auto upgrade mechanism (and also downgrade mechanism, to some extent). You shouldn't need to worry about agent upgrades. If you encounter a problem with the auto upgrade, let us know.

Thank you very much!

Thanks Przemek,

Is it possible to update the Bamboo documentation to incorporate this knoweldge?

Hi @Przemek Bruski would love to see some documentation about this "auto-upgrade" feature of remote bamboo agents. A client is requesting that we manually upgrade them, and I would like to point out that they upgrade themselves. Thanks.

Hello, 

if you look at Bamboo Upgrade Guide , there's a section called "Automatic update of remote agent", which explains this. I've also added that information to Bamboo remote agent installation guide

Cheers
