Schedule upgrade of Agent

I have to upgrade around 2000 PC's to the latest Check Point agent. Is there a way to schedule the upgrade? With this current pandemic most of our users are working remotely on our VPN. The upgrade will disconnect the VPN for a few minutes while it installs. I would like to schedule the install (upgrade) after hours. Can this be done?

You cannot schedule it, once you change the policy and install it the clients will get the new policy when they connect the next time.

The user can postpone it based on the timelines/options you enabled him.

Why not create entities as selected as possible, announce the update and do a Push Operation with Update Agent ?

No way to schedule it, but you can allow the users to postpone the upgrade and pick a specific time that is suitable for them.  When they pick up the upgrade it will download the updated client ready to run the upgrade so that it can be run whether they're on VPN or not.  Might be best sending out a communication to all users explaining how they can do this as they could schedule the upgrade to run after hours if they leave their devices on.

Or do you have SCCM to push the client out?
