    Hi Daniel

    Unless there is a need to have a newer kernel running under the agent (the agent cannot be updated because it's too old or it's not functioning properly), you don't have to update it. This is described here:

    LM-SERVICE will ensure the business logic of that agent is on the same level as your SAP Solution Manager system. It's always a recommendation of SAP to keep LM-SERVICE up to date so you should look for a java patch for the correct SP level of LM-SERVICE to have the latest version applied.

    When the agent is connected to SolMan, it will automatically receive the business logic update which updates that version you spot on Linux: (seems to point to 7.1 SP11)

    So to me it looks like either this agent is not connected to your SAP Solution Manager system or is not getting updated automatically because it should be 7.10.14... in your case since you're running 7.1 SP14 system as you stated.

    You can check out the diagnostic agent versions through SOLMAN_WORKCENTER - Solution Manager Administration workcenter - Infrastructure - Framework - Agent Framework - Agent Admin - All agents

    The above screenshot is from SolMan 7.1 SP13 hence the 7.10.13... version stated there

    Best regards

    Hi Daniel,

    The best practice is to have your ST component and LM-Service component in line, ie,. if your ST component is of version 7.1 SP14, then keep you LM-Service component version as 7.1 SP14. you can patch wo the latest version, but the version and SP should match . This ensures the proper functionality of a solman system .
