It is my first time installing this product. Is there an official technical documentation to perform the upgrade and retain the settings that are set previously.

Will appreciate your help.

The agents need to be upgraded by push install. It will not be liveupdated.

There are 3 ways of upgrading Symantec DLO 7.0 agents to Symantec DLO 7.5 agents:

1. SMS or Log on Script Method

2. Manual Pull installation by accessing Symantec DLO Administration Server’s agent share

3. Push installation from Administration Console

DLOCommandu.exe now provides an option to print the list of existing agents which helps in creating the list of users in a .txt file which can be used for pushing multiple agents via Push Agents from Administration Console UI

Eg: C:\Program Files\Symantec DLO>DLOCommandu.exe -ListMachines > AgentList.txtThe above Command Line Option would print the list of existing agents to the text file AgentList.txt which can be imported during agent push install from DLO Console UI

Option 3 is recommended as it provides automated upgrade of multiple agents

First of all thanks. Do you have the server-side upgrade steps keeping the existing configuration?
