Update Sophos Version/Agent Manually to make up for lack of Control in Controlled Updates
Currently in Sophos Central we can add servers to a Test Group and prevent all other servers from having their agent update.
This is completely inadequate. Need to be able to create more Server Groups and be able to update to the new version by server group.
Should be able to download a manual install for the new version and apply it to the servers while Controlled Updates is turned on.
This would allow us to update critical servers at a time of our choosing.
Right now, the option is Update All Servers - This is equivalent to pushing the Nuclear Button, especially if the update requires a reboot.
I tried to rerun the SophosSetup and the SophosInstall with a new update available on my Portal. No luck. Server stayed stuck at the previous version!

Agreed. Updating all servers at once causes our clusters to crash. This is unacceptable! Through central there is no way to update certain groups or individuals. This MUST be fixed!
