Is there a way to force a client to upgrade their globalprotect version? I have set the update to transparent and this works when users boot up their computers and connect. The issue comes from users that remain connected and don't disconnect. Disconnecting their gateway session does not force the upgrade.
I use always on vpn setting.

are you sure this is because of users not disconnecting, we also have transparent but some devices just refuse to upgrade.
when you disconnect the gateway session, do you see them getting a portal config in the system monitor?
Are there upgrade requirements for the GlobalProtect Client software? Example: I'm on a 4.0.X version wanting to update the client software to 5.0.3. Are there any intermediate versions that I would need to upgrade to first before updating to 5.0.3?
Sorry for late response, I forgot to reply. It seems the issue has to do with the windows service. Seems that transparent upgrade only works if you restart the window service or reboot the computer
Maybe I'll use start using SCCM instead in the future
