Hi, im currently trying to figure out the best way to start testing HIPS in our enviorment and im wondering if any one can confirm for me that if i install this into the EPO4 that we have that it wont deploy the agents out to the clients right away or change any policy that could affect the end users.
What i want to do is deploy it to a test group of computers and evaluate it on them first. Ive found some documentation but nothing showing step by step on installing this. Your help is much apperciated.
You should be able to check in software to the repository without it being installed. In order to install, you would create a client task that would install the HIPs component to the systems that you would like to test it on. For an added layer of security, you can install it into the evaluation repository and deploy from there to those systems. Don't forget to install the patch as well (or the repost with the patch), as well as the updated extension.
You actually do not install the HIPs management server component in ePO 4, that was only needed for ePO 3.6 and below. All you have to do is check the software into the repository, and check in the appropriate extension.
