ERA 6.5 and all in one installers: commands and parameters?

Hello guys,

We've the following situation. One customer is using ERA 6.5 and is installing EEA 7 and Agent 6.5 using the all in one installer generated in the console.
The problem is that many computers have an old version of Agent with a certificate of a ERA installation that was changed months ago and doesn't exist anymore.

When the all in one is executed the computers are upgraded with Agent 6.5 but the old certificate is preserved so the computers doesn't report to console. If the old Agent is removed before the all in one is executed then the computer connects successfully to console because the current certificate is installed along the components.

Is there any parameter we can specify in the all in one package to change the certificate with the new one when executing setup? So we can avoid to uninstall agent prior to installing all in one.

Thank you.

Currently you need to re-deploy agent twice. The first time it will upgrade agent to the latest version and the second time certificates and connection settings will be updated.

Just a note: upgrade & repair has been merged into one in ESMC 7.0 release, so upgrading AGENT to v7 would not require re-deployment -> first upgrade attempt with both upgrade AGENT and change configuration if requested.

Just a note, before upgrading agents to V7, please make sure you server is already upgraded from ESET Remote Administrator to ESET Security Management Center V7.0.

Thank you all for the replies. Unfortunately customer is still at ERA 6.5 because the server they're using is an old Windows 2003.

What would happen if I upgrade ERA 6.5 to ESMC 7 using a task in a Server 2003? 

Thank you.

It would fail to upgrade ERA server to ESMC, but it would possibly upgrade other components, which would result in broken environment that would require manual stepts to downgrade console...
