Can EEPC 5.2.X be managed in epo?

Hello,

it would be possible to manage EEPC 5.2.8 in ePO. If yes, what would be necessary. I guess McAfeeAgent and EEPCAgent is needed.

Thank you.

Best Regards

Only in the path in order to upgrade to V6.1 of EEPC.

Read about the process here:

https://community.mcafee.com/community/business/data/blog/2010/11/11/faq-upgrading-from-eepc-v5-to-v...

But read carefully as some elements of v5 are not available in v6.

Machines must be connected to a domain and the users must be in Active Directory. There are also other changes in v6 so you'd need to see what you implement currently and whether upgrading would affect your current implementation/support.

Actually, the machines don't need to be part of a domain in v6, but the users do. :-)

What does it mean "the machines don't need to be part of a domain in v6, but the user's do". Is it possible with some tricks to manage 5.X with ePo? What is needed doing that?

I think Simon is trying to say that 'techincally' your machines don't need to be part of a domain, but your EE users must be.

If you want to manage your EEPC v5 with ePO you must upgrade to v6.1.

You should have a read at the attached document on the link i mentioned earlier and also read the product guides and migration guides in the product documentation which can be found on the serviceportal: https://mysupport.mcafee.com/Eservice/productdocuments.aspx?strPage=2&pl=0

From what i've read on the forums some things that are available in v5 are not availabe in v6.  Here is a good article that may help:
