Thank you for reaching out over the Redgate forum regarding your SQL Backup query.
Installing & Upgrading server components are really the same in this context.
Upgrading is installing a new version over the previous one, there is no need to remove the previous component prior to an install. Your license, history & current jobs would transfer over.
I presume you're already familiar with this page, but it would be the best resource to get going with a CMDLine/PS automation solution.
This SimpleTalk post shows a method of using SQL Multi-Script to help install the Server Components in bulk and may be useful for your use-case.
Hope this is of help for youJon Kirkwood | Technical Support Engineer | Redgate Software1 · Share on Twitter
