Enterprise Recon 2.3.1

Agent Upgrade

To upgrade, re-install the Agent. See Install Node Agents for instructions for your Agent platform.

Agents do not require an upgrade unless a feature available in an updated version of the Agent is needed. Older versions of the Agent are compatible with newer versions of the Master Server.

Upgrade your Agent to the corresponding Agent version to use the following features:
