Hi @shashidharh,

the easiest solution is to use  a software distribution tool as Ivanti or Ansible or others.

If you haven't:

  • if your servers are Windows, you can use a GPO to run the installer;
  • if your servers are Linux, you can use a script available in Community (search it using Google).

Otherwise, in, two apps to upgrade forwarders are available:

I didn't still used them.
