After the Management Agent has been installed and it has connected to the Management Server, managed software (currently SSH Tectia Client, ConnectSecure, and Server, and older but still supported SSH Secure Shell products and SSH Tectia Connector) can be installed and upgraded using the SSH Tectia Manager administration interface. The Management Agent software running on the managed hosts can be upgraded in the same way.
The installation is done by selecting a host group and software version to install, and then starting the software installation. The Management Server automatically selects the correct software package for each host in the selected host group, uploads the package through the management connection, and tells the Management Agents to install or to upgrade the package. Additional actions, such as restarting the
sshd daemon, enrolling host certificates, or enabling the FIPS mode on Unix hosts, can be set to be executed by the Management Agent after installation.
The progress of the software installation jobs can be tracked in the SSH Tectia Manager administration interface.
