Updating Resilio Connect Agents from v1.3.5 to v2.0


Important. If you are using your private Tracker server, you must update it prior updating your Agents.

To update Agents to v2.0 download the appropriate installer and follow the steps below. 

Agents will remain in their groups after update. All folders assigned to the agent will be reverted to Synchronization job

 

WINDOWS

Download the Resilio Connect msi file to the Windows workstation.
Stop the current Resilio Connect Agent if it's running and launch the downloaded msi, follow its steps. 
When prompted for service user, pick the one that the current installation runs with. If it's running with Local Service, leave that.
If for a reason you'd want to switch to Local System, then:
 - new Agent's settings will be created in System's AppData location. As a result new agent will appear in the list, and it will not be configured, as it's seen as a new agent. 

 

- Wizard will require relaunch Windows Explorer upon installation. 

After update is complete, the agent will keep on working the way it was set up. 

 

OS X 

Download the Resilio Connect Agent dmg file. Stop the current Agent if it's running and launch the downloaded package. Move it to Applications folder picking to replace the existing file. 

Once done, launch the Agent the way you're used to. 

Agent will preserver its settings and keep working the way it was set up. 

 

LINUX

Stop current rslagent process. Download the agent's tar archive and unpack it to the same directory where agent v.13 is located. Launch it the same way and with the same config as agent v.1.3. 

Important! 
For successful updating and preserving all the settings, two conditions must be met:
1) Agent v2.0 shall be using same settings as Agent v.1.3. 
Settings are kept in .sync directory in the current location (pwd) from there the process is launched. So updated agent shall also be launched from the same directory. 
2) Agent v2.0 shall have read-write access to the settings and shared files. So if necessary, adjust posix permissions in the system.
