Inventory Agent Automatic Deployment Cautions

FlexNet Manager Suite 2019 R1 (On-Premises Edition)

Automatic upgrades (or downgrades) of policy-controlled installations of FlexNet inventory agent are available for each supported operating system platform (See the Release Notes for each release for the current version of FlexNet Manager Suite for a list of the supported operating system platforms). However, the following guidelines apply:

  • Avoid using automatic deployment by FlexNet Manager Suite when you are using third party tools to deploy FlexNet inventory agent, as conflicting specifications of the version to deploy can cause damage to the existing installation and upgrade failures.
  • If FlexNet inventory agent is installed on AIX and LINUX platforms in a custom path, automatic upgrade by FlexNet Manager Suite is supported only for FlexNet inventory agent version 13.2.0 or later. If you have specified an earlier release of FlexNet inventory agent for AIX and LINUX platforms where your installation uses a custom location, disable automatic upgrades for that platform.
