Updating an agent on Windows operating systems

This scenario describes the procedure to update an agent on Windows operating systems.

To update the agent, complete the following steps:
  1. From the Dynamic Workload Console landing page, in the Download and Install section, download the agent installation files for the selected operating system platform.
  2. Go to the directory where you saved the compressed agent installation files.
  3. Extract the TWS94_WIN_X86_64_AGENT.zip agent installation file.
  4. The update steps require that your login account has Administrator rights. To verify that your login account has Administrator rights, see Check your Windows User Account Control (UAC) settings.
  5. To update the agent, open a command prompt and type the following command:
    cscript installWAAgent.vbs -update -uname <user_name> -acceptlicense <yes|no>
    Updates the agent on the workstation where you run the command.
    -uname user_name
    The user name of the agent, defined at installation time.
    -acceptlicense yes|no
    Specify whether or not to accept the License Agreement. If you specify no, the update exits without performing any action.
  6. During the update, if you receive a security warning, click Run to continue.

After a successful update, proceed with the update of another agent if necessary.

If the update did not complete successfully, an error is displayed on the screen. Correct the error as described in the error Operator Response that you find in the inst_dir\logs files, and rerun the update.
