How to update ATP sensor version ....

Occasional Contributor


We have installed ATP sensors on couple of DC's in the environment. ( Windows 2016 core servers)
Currently all servers are running with ATP version 2.174. However one server has outdated version 2.171.
Probably it was not updated through Azure Portal since the server was hung.
                      Just wanted to confirm if do we have any option to update the ATP version manually without uninstalling the current package.
- Or do we need to uninstall older version and reinstall newer version, If yes, does it require a Reboot.
And please provide best steps to follow during uninstalling ATP sensor in core servers .

It won't auto update if it's more than 3 version behind.
you need to uninstall and reinstall.
No reboot will be needed unless there is already a pending reboot on the machine.
Thanks for your reply Eli,

Could you please provide the steps that should be followed during uninstalling ATP sensor.
This is windows 2016 core server.

Like other msi based installations, you have the uninstall string in the registry. Running that command will get your sensor removed.

Check the registry value  under HKLM\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall\{guid}\QuietUninstallString

Notice the Wow6432Node in the path since the msi engine was 32bit, and the {guid} that may vary, depending on the version you have installed.

You should find the correct guid path by the DisplayName value, it should be Azure Advanced Threat Protection Sensor.

In my test machine, the command is 

"C:\ProgramData\Package Cache\{fa207b08-f6c7-49c7-ba6b-8e2a8aaccf57}\Azure ATP Sensor Setup.exe" /uninstall /quiet
