Question:
After my upgrade, I opened Workbench and can see several existing Agent icons.  Can the displaying of agents be turned off in the Explorer window? Why are the agents being displayed? How do I removed them? I can easily imagine my users locking out my agent accounts by entering incorrect passwords if the agents are present in their GUI.
Answer:
Those Agent icons represent agent connections that had previously been made with Workbench on that computer. To remove the connection, right click on it and select "Discard Agent Connection".
