Do you know if there is a feature request already to turn that into an agent command?? The url is handy, but I'm a lazy admin, I just want to right click and say update agent.
I totally get it, @jcail. I would want to do the exact same thing if I were in your shoes
I haven't found any Feature Request with that in mind, so you're more than welcome to submit one yourself!
For anyone who comes across this thread, this is still the correct procedure as of 10/2/2017:
Pick your host -> Agent Commands -> Advanced -> Download and run a file -> Paste this URL:
Also - I submitted a feature request for an upgrade agent entry on the agent commands menu. Go vote for it here:
Thanks so much for that, @jcail!
I've given it the first kudos Here's to many more!
This still works for me:
Downlaod and run a file
In the URL field paste this in: http://anywhere.webrootcloudav.com/zerol/wsasme.exe
Hit the "Download and Execute" button.
What is your Poll Interval? If it is set at a high value like "Daily", it could take a long time or potentially lapse. If you have a decent internet connection, there's no reason to not have your poll interval set to 15 minutes. That will give you a better interval for running commands - especially if you're doing some clean-up. I've got 24 sites - all running at 15 minute poll intervals - no issues.
Also - there's a feature request to give this a little more automation - just a nice to have:
