McAfee MOVE Upgrade Query

Afternoon All,

I'm just in the process of putting a plan together to upgrade our MOVE platform (multi-platform) from 4.80 to 4.91.

I know the general running order from reading the installation guide: 

1. Upgrade SVM Manager

2. Upgrade SVMs

3. Upgrade MOVE Clients (We are running non-persistent VDI workstation)

Unfortunately, I am not in a position to all three steps in one sitting.  So my question is: if I upgrade the SVM manager and the SVMs to the latest versions.  Will my MOVE clients (VDI workstations) running 4.80 be able to connect to SVM Manager and more importantly the SVMs?

I cannot see anything in the documentation about backward compatibility.

Re: McAfee MOVE Upgrade Query

That should be fine, the clients will be able to connect but we suggest you to upgrade the clients as soon as possible to the same version

All guidelines are documented below:

Re: McAfee MOVE Upgrade Query

Thanks for getting back to me so quickly.  That link brings me to the Agentless configuration and I use multi-platform.

 

Can you have a mix of versions temporarily so that we can test 4.91 first?

For example:

SVM Manager (Version 4.9.0.195)

SVM-1 (4.91)

SVM-2 (4.91)

SVM-3 (4.80)

SVM-4 (4.80)

MOVE CLIENTS (Mix of 4.80 and 4.91)

Re: McAfee MOVE Upgrade Query

sure, my reply was based on Multiplatform as we dont have anything from Mcafee Move installed on the agentless clients 😊 

The Upgrade guide for Multiplatform is above the Agentless guide, here it is:
