Host IPS Client 6.1.0 Patch 3 will update a client
containing Host IPS Client 6.1.0 (Build 506) or
later. It will not update a previous version.
Patch 3 is language independent and will update
English and non-English systems.
An administrator can install this release by
adding the package to the ePolicy Orchestrator
repository for deployment via an ePolicy
Orchestrator agent Update task.
Note: New Host IPS client installations deployed
using ePolicy Orchestrator, will automatically
receive Patch 3 if Patch 3 is checked in to the
ePolicy Orchestrator repository.
Patch 3 can also be installed locally by running
the patch binary on the target system.
1. Disable the Host IPS protection from ePolicy
Orchestrator or the local client UI.
2. Run McAfeeHIP_ClientPatch3.exe
3. Enable Host IPS protection
4. Restart the system
Patch 3 requires a reboot to complete installation
for Host IPS Client 6.1.0 (pre-Patch 1) systems.
Systems upgraded through ePolicy Orchestrator, with
the user logged in, will prompt for reboot if the
"Prompt user when software installation requires
reboot" option is selected in the ePolicy Orchestrator
Agent software configuration settings. ePolicy
Orchestrator upgrades, with no user logged in, or local
upgrades performed using third party tools such
as SMS, will not prompt for a reboot. If deploying
Patch 3 via a third party application, force a
reboot after installation. The ePolicy Orchestrator
Agent will not update any other product or DAT until
the required system restart occurs.
Systems running at least HIP Client 6.1.0 Patch 1
do not require a reboot after applying Patch 3.
On the first restart after the Patch 3 install,
the Host IPS client Activity Log may display the
"Service Error #31"
This is a benign message and does not impact the
Host IPS client operation.
Note: Systems which require a fix for issue
328407 may need a second reboot reload the drivers
replaced during systems startup.
