Upgrade Distributed Cloud AIP Agent 1.x Series


If you are using Agent 1.x, F5 Distributed Cloud App Infrastructure Protection (AIP) recommends upgrading your Agent to the newest version.

Agent Upgrade Methods

You can upgrade using your distributions' normal package upgrade mechanisms. Reminder, the `install` command finds the newest file, and when the agent is already installed, it triggers an update.


If you use Agent 1.6.8 or later, then use these instructions to upgrade the Agent. If you use Agent 1.6.7 or earlier, then you must uninstall the Agent and reinstall a supported Agent. For a list of supported Agent versions, see System Requirements.

Ubuntu and Debian

sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install threatstack-agent


Do not use theapt-get dist-upgradecommand to upgrade your Distributed Cloud AIP Agent. Thedist-upgradecommand deletes, or deletes and replaces, out of date packages, which may break functionality in tools with dependencies on those packages.

Red Hat, CentOS, and Fedora

sudo yum install threatstack-agent

Alternatively, you can leverage our Chef, Puppet, Salt, or Ansible code available on Github to help install or upgrade your agent.


  • At this time you cannot upgrade existing agents inside of the Distributed Cloud AIP application.
