How important the reboot after upgrading the traps agent from 4.1.3 to 4.2.3 agent version

L1 Bithead

Hi Community,


I would like to ask how reboot is important after upgrading the Traps Agent?

We have a issue on rebooting it because the target servers are production.


These are the Windows operating system:

Microsoft Windows Server 2008 R2 Enterprise


Any tip?

It is not a hard requirement to reboot. But if the servers are production boxes, ideally (after testing, always test upgrades in a sandbox before upgrading production systems.) the upgrade would be deployed during a patching cycle. The reboot allows the agent to benefit from any new drivers or modules that require a component to load on boot.
