7.0.577.0 Agent Upgrade Fails On Hyper-V Guests

Recommended Posts

I have several Hyper-V guests running Server 2016 Std that will not upgrade to Agent 7.0.577.0 . They are currently running version 7.0.553.0. I have tried upgrading via "Components Upgrade" from SMC and with a manual installer.

The Hyper-V hosts (also Server 2016) and all other computers on my network have upgraded to 7.0.577.0 without a problem. Is there a known issue installing the latest agent on Hyper-V guests?

We are not aware of any issues related to hyper-V hosts. We will need more detailed descriptions of the errors, including the install log / trace log from the agent from the moment of the failed upgrade attempt.

I'll run another Components Upgrade and then upload the trace log. It might be a bit as it stays in a "running" status for quite a bit before it times out and shows failed.

There should be full-verbosity MSIEXEC installation log with name ra-upgrade-infrastructure.log either in AGENT's Logs directory, or in system temporary directory. It should help us to identify cause of failure of last upgrade attempt.

From symptoms you describe it is possible that AGENT's service cannot stop and thus upgrade fails - in such case, could you provide us version/type of ESET security product you are using on those clients?

My upgrades failed due to an extended power outage that required me to shut down all servers. I tried manually uninstalling the agent though from one guest server and it fails, as the agent service cannot be stopped So I think that may be the root of the problem. How can I force terminate the agent service?
