    I have DCS 6.0 installed (Trialware) with embedded SQL DB on Server A. I have just setup a new DCS 6.5 Management server (Server B) connecting to a SQL 2012 DB. What would be the easiest to point the agents to the new 6.5 server

    1) Upgrade the DCS agent with 6.5 and the new cert

    2) Use the sisipsconfig to point to the new 6.5 management server and thereafter upgrade the agent manually

     

    Any advice would be helpful.

    I'm assuming theres no reason to keep the agents on the older version so I would go straight to upgrading the agent to 6.5.  You can make the server change using the agent config tool but you'll still need the new cert for that.  Option 2 would end up being a two step process.

    1. Point the agent at the new server
    2. Upgrade after the fact

     

    Just my two cents

    Cheers!
