  • Hi Rich,

    For the pushed installed agents, your understanding is right, it will upgrade automatically. For other manually installed agent you can refer to the following article to do the upgrading:

    https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/system-center/scom/deploy-upgrade-agents?view=sc-om-1801 

    It seems the post has been submited twice. We will reply you in one post for your convinience.

    Thanks and have a nice day.

    Best regards.

    Crystal

  • Hi Rich,

    After doing a lot of research, I didn't find any article mentioned this. From the above official article, it seems "Upgrade Agent" in SCOM is needed. Is there any Linux agent deployed in your environment? If yes, we can check it in SCOM to see if the version is upgraded automatically.

    best regards.

    Crystal
