EPO 4.0 scan tasks

Hi All

Hoping someone can assist.ii quite new to Mcafee Epo.
I currently have approx 5000+ workstations on a single epo server.
Question1: Is there a way where i can search for a pc and once i have found it,set it to scan immediately?

Question2: Is it advisable to add a second epo 4.0 server as the secondary server to lighten the load on the first?

regards

Yuggie

RE: EPO 4.0 scan tasks

quick sytem search from the dashboards area lets you find a managed machine quickly you can then from that systems properties use the buttons at the bottom to create a new task to scan immediately and wake the machineup, will then run a scan.

depending on network and rights you may be able to console from the AV console on the server to the console of a PC and then just start the full scan immediately

vse console
tools
open remote console

( needs admin right to machie you are going to and for this item to have been left switched on in vse config)


You can easily run 5000 on a decent server are you having issues?

RE: EPO 4.0 scan tasks

Thanks Tonyb


This info has helped.
Yes i am having issues with deployment and my server is struggling a bit as the SQL I/O is high at the moment.An busy replacing the server to something a bit more decent.

1 more quick question.

Will the epo version 4.5 have a tree architecture...meaning will i have the option in the epo to rightclick on a pc and select scan now and or view infected files/viruses.
and will it be more user friendly meaning....is there an option of running many epo servers accross our different sites with just no a repository but a fully blown version of epo?

Regards
Yuggie:)

4.5 has the same options as 4.0 in the tree, so no

you would use agent handlers, you can just download the documentation for a full overview from here: https://kc.mcafee.com/resources/sites/MCAFEE/content/live/PRODUCT_DOCUMENTATION/21000/PD21812/en_US/...
