The Log Analytics Windows Agent for Winter 2021 is now available. This release contains a new troubleshooting tool and changes to how the agent handles certificate changes in Azure Services. Due to the certificate change, later this year, your agent will no longer be able to communicate with Azure and you will need to update to this version or later. We will announce specific timelines in a separate post soon. As always, we suggest using the latest agent available.
If you have installed the Log Analytics Agent for Windows by using Azure extensions and have automatic extension updates turned on, this update will be applied automatically. The latest release is also available to download from the Advanced Settings section in Log Analytics in the Azure portal.
