Upgrading the FSA Agent manually
Use the following procedure to upgrade the FSA Agent on a server by installing the required files manually.
Before you upgrade the FSA Agent on a target Windows file server, note that while the upgrade proceeds, Enterprise Vault stops the following FSA Agent services on the file server:
Enterprise Vault File Placeholder service. While this service is stopped, Enterprise Vault cannot create placeholders or perform placeholder recalls on the Windows file server.
Enterprise Vault File Collector service. While this service is stopped, no FSA Reporting scans run on the following:
The file server.
Any non-Windows file servers for which the file server acts as the FSA Reporting proxy server.
Enterprise Vault 12.3 does not support File Blocking. If you are upgrading from Enterprise Vault 12.1 or earlier, the upgrade process removes the Enterprise Vault File Blocking service from the file server.
To upgrade the FSA Agent manually
- Find the required files on the Enterprise Vault server. The files are in the
evpush\Agentfolder under the Enterprise Vault installation folder; for example,
C:\Program Files (x86)\Enterprise Vault\evpush\Agent.
Install the required Microsoft Visual C++ redistributable packages on the file server:
- Log on to the file server with an account that is a member of the local Administrators group on the file server.
- Run the
Enterprise Vault File System Archiving x64.msifile on the file server.
As part of the upgrade process, you may be prompted to restart the file server.
