Upgrade McAfee ePO Agent on DXL/TIE

Hi everyone!

I am looking for official document/method to upgrade McAfee ePO Agent on DXL/TIE server. I upgraded my DXL Broker Server to version 6 but McAfee ePO Agent on DXL is still version 5.5.1.462.

Hi @VietDuc19 ,

The latest version of McAfee Agent package available for MLOS environment is 5.6.1.157.

This package is typically upgraded as part of the TIE 3.0.x version. If you are planning TIE upgrade the MA upgrade will be automated.

If you prefer the manual method of agent upgrade download the MA for MLOS package from the download site -> check in the package to Master repository ( branch options preferred ) either you can perform Deploy Agent -> Client task assignment for agent upgrade.

Hi VietDuc19,

I would recommend you to upgrade TIE 3.0 from 2.3.1 as it comes along with latest Agent for MLOS. Please see the below product guide.

https://docs.mcafee.com/bundle/threat-intelligence-exchange-3.0.x-installation-guide/page/GUID-CEA98...

McAfee Agent for MLOS

Considerations for McAfee Agent for MLOS are:

  • If you upgrade TIE to 3.0.0 version, the McAfee Agent for MLOS is upgraded after you upgrade the server appliance.
  • Do not install the McAfee Agent for Linux because it is not compatible.

 

NOTE: The task for upgrading the McAfee Agent for MLOS runs at 12 a.m. on the same day you upgrade the appliance. If you can't complete the McAfee Agent upgrade after that period, you can upgrade it manually. For more information, see the Troubleshooting section.

Thank you so much @LKS 

One more thing I would like to ask is about DXL Broker. Because I cannot find the location to post the question about DXL broker. 

What is latest version of McAfee Agent on DXL Broker? I updated my DXL Broker to version 6 but I saw that, McAfee Agent on DXL broker is the same before I upgrade.

I am still confused about your information. I known that McAfee Agent 5.6.3 bundled McAfee DXL Client 6 as a component.

But I don't know: what is latest version of McAfee Agent that is running on DXL Broker Appliance? How can I make sure that my DXL Broker Appliance is using the latest version of McAfee Agent?

I hope you can help me to explain about my confusing.

Ahhh, I found a log file that show the processing of upgrading McAfee Agent on DXL Broker:

It's look like the latest version of McAfee Agent is running on DXL broker is 5.5.1.462 and I don't have to do anything to upgrade McAfee Agent on DXL Broker.
