Updating Linux kernel and main revision when solidcore is installed

Hye, we have a few old RHEL servers we would like to update their minor (and perhaps their major version to 9 on the future)
However these are active servers with application installed on top of them and Solidcore installed and Endpoint Security installed
Is there a way to do this upgrade without entering into update mode as it said in this FAQ page?

Maybe add some very specific updaters? or create a specific policy for that?

Re: Updating Linux kernel and main revision when solidcore is installed

Hi @TankwellReport

Thank you for reaching us through community.

We can't upgrade the machine without entering to update or disable mode.

To upgrade the solidcore client on the endpoints below are the steps which you have to follow.

Before you begin

Place the endpoints in Disable mode or Update mode.


  1. On the McAfee ePO console, select Menu → Systems → System Tree.
  2. Apply the client task to a group or an endpoint:
    • Group — Select a group in the System Tree and click the Assigned Client Tasks tab.
    • Endpoint — Select the endpoint on the Systems page and click Actions → Agent → Modify Tasks on a Single System.
  3. Click Actions → New Client Task Assignment to open the Client Task Assignment Builder page.
  4. Select the McAfee Agent product, Product Deployment task type, then click Create New Task to open the Client Task Catalog page.
  5. Specify the task name, add any descriptive information, select the target platform, then specify the component and action:
    • Select the appropriate package from the Products and components list.
    • Select Install for the action.
    • Select the language of the package.
    • Select the branch you want. Set to Current for new products.
  6. Click Save, then specify scheduling details.
  7. Review and verify the task details, then click Save.
  8. Restart the endpoints.

    Kindly let me know if you have any further questions for me. Am glad to answer
