Upgrading .NET Framework version on Self Hosted agent Azure DevOps Server

Copper Contributor



We are planning to upgrade our current .NET frame work version from 4.6 to latest version ( 4.8 or 4.7.2 ) on our primary Azure DevOps agent server(Windows).


Please suggest us on below queries: 

  1.  Is there any impact on our current Azure DevOps agent setup after upgrading .NET Framework ?
  1.  In existing setup, we are having single DevOps agent server, what are the risks/challenges will be there on windows server after upgrade activity ?? 
  2.  If we are proceeding with Framework upgradation, What are changes required on existing Azure DevOps/pipelines setup to compatible with latest .NET framework ??
