SmartDeploy Client - upgrade necessary?

Recommended Posts

When a new version of SmartDeploy is released (like the one today - 2.0.3040) - is there a need to upgrade the client on your end-user PCs? And if so, how is that done?

Hi Ted,

In order to perform console-initiated deployments, the clients must be on the same version as the console. No action should be required, however - the clients should install the latest version automatically, starting within a few minutes of when you upgrade the console. 

Please feel free to reach out if you have any questions or issues - support@smartdeploy.com.

Also - while I have you - what is the new orange exclamation on my Deployment Packages screen - I'm assuming that indicates that there is an old client on board?

Hi Ted,

Yep, you guessed it. Deployment Packages need to be recreated as well with the new version, but you can use the same answer file as before, unless you're utilizing any new Deploy Wizard features that did not exist in the previous version (I don't believe there are any such changes in .3040, but this has been the case in some previous versions).

It's all good - just finished recreating them. Thanks Glenn - and thanks to your team for an AWESOME product. I recommend it to everyone I know in the industry.

Is there a way to force the clients to call in to be updated? I'm working with some cloud connected machines and they haven't received the updated client yet after approximately 24 hours.
