Team Foundation Server–Upgrade your build agents

If you upgrade your TFS installation to a newer version, a new version of the build agent is available as well.

To upgrade your agents, you have 2 options:

  • If a new major version of the agent is released, you’ll have to manually delete the old agent and install a new agent.
  • If a new minor version of the agent is released, the existing agent is upgraded automatically when it runs a task that requires a newer version of the agent.
    • If you want to trigger the update manually, you can go to the Agent Pool hub, right click on a Queue and click on Update All Agents.
