due to the wonderfull help inside this forum i come more and more into the system and i really like what i learn and see.
I had the problem that upgrade of the agent to 8.7.0 did not work like expected.
So i checked the forum and other sources.
I found out that i need to download the archive, extract and move it to the installed agent data directory.
Than i needed to rename it to elastic-agent-fc4a15. This seems to be the name for 8.7.0.
This info had been shown with elastic-agent upgrade --help.
Well - finally igot the update installed - just needed to call the running agent in the above directory with elastic-agent upgrade 8.7.0.
What i wonder is, if i can delete the "old" directory or even both of the install directories in the data folder?
on linux it is about 1G of data.
Any help with this?
Can i delete the directories in data after upgrading the agent?
