9261: Acronis Backup & Recovery 10 Advanced: Updating an Acronis Agent Using Group Policy

Recreate the Group Policy and deploy it

This article applies to:

  • Acronis Backup & Recovery 10 Advanced Server
  • Acronis Backup & Recovery 10 Advanced Server - Small Business Server Edition
  • Acronis Backup & Recovery 10 Advanced Workstation
  • Acronis Backup & Recovery 10 Advanced Server - Virtual Edition

Introduction

If you are intending to update an Acronis Agent for Windows using Group Policy, you will need to create a new Group Policy and deploy it.

Providing the AcronisAgentWindows.msi file from a newer build into an already existing Group Policy will not update the Acronis Agent for Windows. Windows Installer treats the AcronisAgentWindows.msi files from different builds as different products, and will not update these through Group Policy.

Solution

To update Acronis Agents for Windows, create a new Group Policy and deploy it. For complete instructions please see Page 19 of Installation Guide.
