Recommended ESM version?

Jump to solution

Hi all,

I'm preparing to upgrade my ESMs from version 10.2.  What's the recommended upgrade version now?  The last time I checked, the McAfee tech I spoke to indicated that version 11 wasn't quite ready for prime time, but I don't see 10.3 available for download any more.  Should I go to 11.1?

Thanks,

- Steve

Hi, I recently opened a SR because I had problems updating the ERC device from version 10.2 to 11.1.2, the specialist told me that version 11.1.2 is very heavy and was created for high availability environments and applliances that process many events by second, not recommended for combobox. 

 

Hope this information helps you.

Hi Cintia,

Thanks very much.  That is very helpful.  We have an ESM/ERC/ELM combo box, so I will concentrate on trying to find a copy 10.3.

Best regards,

Hi,

i just want to say that it happened in 11

but in version 11.1.3 (the last version) McAfee Fixed the Problem.

if you don't have a clear reason why you want to upgrade to 11.x

just stay in 10.3 - the best version for now.

 

Best regards👍👍👍

David.
