Upgrading the Inventory and Application Metering Plug-ins

If you upgrade from a previous version of Inventory Solution, and you previously installed the Inventory or Application Metering Plug-ins, you must upgrade the plug-ins on managed computers.

To upgrade a plug-in, you turn on an upgrade policy that is located with the plug-in installation policy.

This task is a step in the process for preparing managed computers for inventory and metering.
