Does re-pushing the agent to a workstation cause the agent to be reinstalled?

Deploying the agent to a workstation will only push that agent once, and will not reinstall it if repushed again. This is good to know, because if agent installs partially fail within an agent deployment, restarting the job will actually restart it on 100% of the workstations, regardless of whether they had succeeded before. Do not worry, as the agent installer has a mechanism to check for an existing agent. Note, however, that the same does not apply to other scripts. see the question about that in this FAQ.

For agent updates, you would have to use the KACE Agent Update section under Settings/KBOX Agents.
