Product Update task

Jump to solution

I'm in VERY early stages of migrating to ENS (as in, my computer is the only one running it) and have much to learn regarding best practices still, but in the very least I want to be sure I'm running what is appropriate as a product update task so that I'm getting updated.

I used to have a single update task, and working with support several months ago, the tech suggesting splitting daily dat updates into its own task separate from all packages.  I'm assuming there are different lines of thinking about this, but that's how I had it currently set up.

So my first question is, should I just add categories to my existing daily dat update task for the categories for ENS, or should I keep the tasks separate?  

Also, on a "daily update" task, what does need to be checked, pertaining to ENS?  I'm not entirly clear, but my understanding thus far is that the AMCore content may be a replacement of the dat files but I could be wrong.

In any case, just looking for the recommended daily product task.

Hi, 

You could have one update task at "My Organization" level, including updates for VSE and ENS. 

This would roll down to all clients/groups regardless of product. 

Or you can have a task assigned to a group or groups as you wish.. Both are update tasks:

"Client Task Catalog : Edit Task - McAfee Agent: Product Update"

 

Essentially, yes Endpoint Security Exploit Prevention Content and AMCore Content Package are for ENS and are subject to daily update.

Yes, you can specify updates on one task and product updates on the other if you wish, but this will only push updates that you already checked into ePO.

HI, 

There is no one way to do this, but where you have an update task for VSE for example, there is nothing preventing you adding the options for ENS as long as the task also gets inherrited to the relevent groups for ENS.

 

Signatures and Engines

Endpoint Security Exploit Prevention Content

AMCoreContent Package

 

Patches and service packs

Endpoint security Firewall

Endpoint Security Platform

Endpoint Security Threat Prevention

Endpoint Security Adaptive Threat Prevention

 

Or you can split them up as you see fit..

You say I could split them as I have it now - So then the "daily" task that absolutely needs to be run would be the following, correct?  The rest would be product updates?

 

Signatures and Engines

Endpoint Security Exploit Prevention Content

AMCoreContent Package

I'm a bit late to the show on this one but this is what I have done...  I hope it helps...

We have both VSE and ENS on our domain.

Tags VSE and ENS with a server task that will identify endpoints and what product they have by using them tahs.

After things are taged I have 2 seperate Agent update tasks.

1 - Looks for the ENS tag and does a AMcore update task to them.

2 - Looks for VSE tag and deploys DAT updates to them.

Personally, I only want to target systems that are relevant to the task running.  I find it's cleaner this way and have allot less issues.
