Need help with McAfee product installation-epo, encryption and dlp

Hi all,

I need to install.mcafee epo, disk encryption and dlp.for about 200 users.

Is there a specs document available for how much the epo server(epo+disk encryption+dlp) should be because I see min 8gb ram and proc and all. Now should I use SQL express or have a separate SQL server for this given I have disk encryption and dlp as well.

If anyone can help me out, I'd really appreciate it.

Thanks for your post!

I would like to inform you that for ePO we need to 8GB of free space.

I would recommend to use SQL Standard or Enterprise so you don't face any issue with the database space.

As Express edition will come with only 10 GB of space.

Also try to host the SQL on different machine so you will not face any issue with the performance.

While installing the ePO please run the IIS Crypto tool to rearrange the ciphers.

You can check the KB87731 as well.
