While looking in my operator console at my UNIX system, the AppManagerAgent version (blue) is different then the UNIX version (green). What causes this?


Run the Discovery_UNIX knowledge script on the newly upgraded machine.


The AppManagerAgent version is the current agent version seen in the last heartbeat (the UNIX agent includes its version information in each xml heartbeat it makes to the Management Server). The UNIX version is the last discovered UNIX agent version.

In the example above, the UNIX agent was upgraded from 7.0.1 to 7.1 and a new discovery was never run, thus the last hartbeat seen has a newer version then the last discovered version.
