We have just put in a new ePO 5.1 server and looking to decom our ePO 4.5 Patch 4 server.
We have 2000 laptops on EEPC 6.1.3 which need to be migrated to the new ePO 5.1 server and upgraded to Drive Encryption 7.1.
Is there a best way to do this ? Is it going to be possible to migrate the machines between ePO servers AND upgrade the software?
I have read multiple scenarios but none involved a new ePO server and a different version of ePO !
Is your 4.5 server x86?
How do you assign your encrypted users? manually or add local domain users?
Do you have any clients on the new server at all just now- if not read the discussion and procedures posted by RGC here: https://community.mcafee.com/message/302134.
(may involve rebuilding your 5.1 server)
I have a similar scenario- try and use that procedure, or this https://kc.mcafee.com/corporate/index?page=content&id=KB71078 first. As tranfer of assigned users is not supported. (Now i have two servers with encrypted machines on them and its turning into a nightmare!)
