@sxkumar - thank you, that probably would have eased the transition - unfortunately we wanted to work with a new, more powerful host server and a new folder structure for the repository database (hosted on the same system as OMS) and thus we are not really upgrading so much as reinstalling. I guess I'm just surprised that Cloud provides the capability to install the agent from a central location but no mechanism for uninstalling...
If my understanding is not correct from your posting, drop me an email and we can discuss your requirement further.
1) if you are upgrade your agents from 12.1. to 12.2 then you have to use agent upgrade console to do that and it does an out of place agent upgrade ( you get a new agent home)
To clarify, you don’t have to re-install the agent to upgrade an agent from 12.1 to 12.2. You can argue that out of place upgrade is equivalent to fresh install of 12.2 but as a part of this agent upgrade process we upgrade plug ins, migrate the agent config and other details.
2) If your concern is how to delete the old 12.1 agent home on multiple target host after agent upgrade? Then yes, this an requirement for us to automate this process to clean up the old agent homes while doing an agent upgrade from 12.1. to 12.2. For time being, as I mentioned earlier we detach the old 12.1 agent home from inventory so the only thing you have to do is to remove the old home directories.
3) Are you also trying to migrate your operating system on the OMS or Repository host as a part of this upgrade ?
To add to this, documented backup and recovery steps can be used to move the OMS and Repository to new hosts.
