Update Azure VM agent on VM-Series

Hi,

 

Does anyone know the command to run via SSH to update the linux Azure VM agent? 

None of the ones listed in URL below appear to work:

Thanks,

What's the reason to do this?

 

I very much doubt you can update the agent on the firewall.

The existing agent is out of date and i'd imagine eventualy will not be supported. 

 

If this is not supported, the VM-Series is not really suitable for Azure.

Re: Update Azure VM agent on VM-Series

We plan periodic updates to components inside the VM-Series firewall for all platforms. This will also do this for the Azure agent, however there is no loss of functionality or issues related to agent versions. We typically wait for the Azure agent code to release, stabilize and then include it at the appropriate time. We will take proactive action if there are any bug fixes or issues that require faster update. The agent changes should be transparent/invisible to customers since it primarily deals with provisioning and backend/fabric communiations with Azure.
