Transfer DLPe configuration between ePO servers - same versions required?

Jump to solution

Hi,

To transfer policies to other McAfee ePO servers: https://docs.mcafee.com/bundle/data-loss-prevention-11.0.000-product-guide-epolicy-orchestrator/page... (ultimately, policy export and import using standard process).

As per other products*, when transferring policies, do the ePO server and the DLP extension need to be exactly the same version on both the source and target ePO servers?

I am aware that there were major schema changes between 9.3 and 9.4, however I dont want to assume that after this we can export from 11.0 and import to 11.0, for example.

Cheers,

Cheers Mreaden,

I was aware of that KB - main reason I was checking and clarifying is that McAfee documentation can be contradictory, and certain DLP documention inferred that export and import was possible between different versions.

For reference, it is worth noting that the KB you link to:

- has had a critical update (on 29th, step 1 was amended to "same or later version of ePO" from "clean copy of the same version of ePO" - support themselves confirmed to me that *exact* same version was required - I wonder if this was incorrect, or simply no longer required for latest ePO version...

- The KB is far from complete.  A glaring omission is migration of tags (which is quite key given how many times they can be referenced).  this is critical due to known issues with tag migration (KB85814) which caused me a *nightmare* recently on an ePO migration project, and is not very well advertised...!
