I have inheritted a ePO system and I have slowly been working through the products getting them all up to date.
HIPS seems to be the worse and most difficult, i have had nothing but issues and problems with version 7. I now have all new machines on version 8 and this runs fine.
What is the best way to upgrade HIPS 7 Patch 6 and HIPS 7 Patch 7 to the latest HIPS 8 (currently P1).
I have being doing a straight upgrade and this works maybe 50% of the time. The other 50% I either end up with totally messed up systems or systems that just reboot and still have 7 installed. Then I generally have to follow the long manual removal instructions or just rebuild the machine.
I have seen a few posts around upgrading to patch 9, is this recommended before updating to 8? Will this be a smoother process?
Is there any other ways you have managed these sorts of upgrades with minimal issues?
Thanks for that bgable, ill give this a try. With HIPS8 P0 and HIPS8 P1 the upgrade only worked maybe 40% of the time so hopefully this has a higher success rate otherwise I may be waiting for a full hardware cycle to get everyone on 8!
