Upgrade a Liongard Agent

Agent Version

Agent End of Life

Liongard no longer supports Agents older than version 3.0.2. Please update your Agents to ensure that your Inspectors continue to function properly.

Windows Server OS Before 2012 R2

We currently do not support Windows Server older than 2012 R2 because the Liongard Agent has a dependency on a software package called NodeJS. The Agent needs a specific minimum version of that software package to work and Windows Server 2008 R2 and below do not support it.

🚧

Upgrading Agent Version 2.0 or Older

If attempting to upgrade an Agent running version 2.0 or older, Liongard recommends doing a full uninstall, and reinstalling with the latest Agent from Admin > Agents.

After the Agent has been upgraded, you will need to move Inspectors to the new Agent, following our documentation here, deleting the unsupported Agent afterward.

❗️

Updating A/V and Security Exceptions

Please note that Agents version 2.x.x or higher have an installation path of:
\program files (x86)\liongardinc\liongardagent\

Agents 1.x.x have an installation path of:
\program files (x86)\liongardinc\roaragent\

If you have created exceptions in your security software, you may need to update them depending on if you do an in-place upgrade or an uninstall > reinstall upgrade.

To upgrade a Liongard Agent, please follow the steps outlined below.
