An option during the upgrade or uninstall of an agent to only choose the Dynamic Agent and not the FTA
During the installation of an agent, an option is available (-agent dynamic|fta|both) to choose which type of agent to install, either a Dynamic Agent (DA) or an Fault-Toerant Agent (FTA). A similar option must exist for upgrade (-update) and uninstallation (-uninst) where the agent can be chosen. With the wider adoption of DAs, the FTAs are left and forgotten on the systems and as the passwords for the users that own the FTA services expire, they are no longer updated. As a result, when a DA is upgraded or uninstalled, the process fails as it also tries to stop/start the FTA, which fails due to incorrect password. The passwords must be updated in the Lo On tab of the services properties in order to complete the action successfully.
