  • Hi Anurag,

    Thank you for the notify about UR8!

    One question regarding the KB:
    Are you able to update the DPM-agent from UR6 to UR8 without it requiring a reboot?

    "Note If the DPM server and protected servers are running DPM 2012 R2 Update Rollup 5 (version 4.2.1292.0) or earlier update rollups, the Agent update will require a restart of protected servers."

    "If you have System Center 2012 R2 Data Protection Manager Update Rollup 7 (V4.2.1338.0) installed, the Update Rollup UR8 agent update requires you to restart protected servers."

    Please confirm whatever the information in the KB-article is insufficient or you can in fact update from UR6 to UR8 without a restart!

    Kind Regards
    Markus Eliasson
