SNS ProTip for ePO: Use alternate repository branches when checking in a new version of the McAfee Agent

Version 1

    Only one version of the McAfee Agent can be present in each repository branch (Current, Previous, or Evaluation). If you upgrade the McAfee Agent version in a particular branch, any existing McAfee Agent Product Deployment tasks for that branch will send out the newer version to any systems that receive the task.

    McAfee recommends that you check the newer Agent into an alternative repository branch (Previous or Evaluation) until the software is ready for deployment throughout the entire environment. You can then check it in to the Current branch. For more information, see KB83204 ( ).
