Can SVM 4.8 serve 4.6 clients?

Jump to solution

Hi,

Several SVMs serving multiple VMs -- all multiplatform running MOVE 4.6.

I'm planning to upgrade everything to 4.8, and would like to start with SVMs. If I upgrade SVMs first to 4.8 will they be able to protect clients running 4.6 (which I plan to upgrade too, but that might take longer)?

Thanks.

Hi @nov1ce 

To upgrade McAfee MOVE AntiVirus (Multi-Platform), install and upgrade these components in this order:
1 Product extension
2 SVM Manager
3 SVM
4 McAfee MOVE AntiVirus client

FYI - this is taken from the installation guide: https://kc.mcafee.com/resources/sites/MCAFEE/content/live/PRODUCT_DOCUMENTATION/28000/PD28019/en_US/...

 

Your systems remain protected during the upgrade if you follow this order. Whilst it will work with an updated SVM and the older version running on the clients, it is be advisable to perform all steps within a reasonable time frame to avoid any unexpected issues.
