Endpoint Security upgrade task tries to install obsolete version


Recommended Posts

Running into strange behavior I haven't encountered in the past.  Curious if it's just me.

My Protect console is showing outdated version for my hosts running Endpoint Security.

Current version:  9.1.2051
Latest version: 9.1.2057

Weird thing I immediately noticed is that the donut chart is completely green and there was no outdated product alert for these machines.

I created a task to install 9.1.2057 on a test group running Win10 21H2 and it failed on every machine.

Checking event log on the test machines and I see these two events:

"Product: ESET Endpoint Security -- A more recent version of the application is already installed on this computer."

"Windows Installer installed the product. Product Name: ESET Endpoint Security. Product Version: 8.1.2050.0. Product Language: 1033. Manufacturer: ESET, spol. s r.o.. Installation success or error status: 1603."

I triple-checked the task and the installed version on the test machines to be certain I wasn't overlooking something obvious and it all checks out.  Anyone seen something like this?

Ok noticed that in Status Overview, Component version status for endpoint was blue and showing "Waiting" for the outdated hosts.  Somehow auto updates enabled itself somewhere along the way.  I remember being told that this would not be enabled by default back when it was first announced but I guess that is not the case any longer.

Application version status donut chart is back to yellow/green after disabling auto updates via policy.

Installation still failing attempting to install obsolete version.

Got the notification today about Endpoint Security v9.1.2057.  Attempted the upgrade on a test group and they exhibited the same behavior described in my first post.

Windows Installer installed the product. Product Name: ESET Endpoint Security. Product Version: 8.1.2050.0. Product Language: 1033. Manufacturer: ESET, spol. s r.o.. Installation success or error status: 1603.

Anyone else run into this yet?
