Re: About Patch 14 installation VSE 8.8

Hi,

 

I would like to share the detailed steps that might help you.

 

  • Standalone install:

 

  • Install from EPO:

Step 1 : Log on to EPO.

Step 2 :  Make sure you have the package for VSE in Master repository.

Step 3 : Go to "system tree".

Step 4 : Select the machine to which you want to deploy VSE.

Step 5 : Actions - > Agent -> Edit task on a single system -> New client task assignment

Step 6 : Product : McAfee Agent ; Task type : Product deployment .

Step 7: Click on "create new task".

Step 8 : Name the ask.

Step 9 : Under "products and components " select the VSE package from the drop down.

Step 10 :Save the task.

Step 11 :Schedule the task as per your required timing or to run immediately .

Step 12 :Save the task.

Step 13 :Give a wake up agent call to the machine if necessary (system tree -> select machine -> wakeup agent ).

 

  • To deploy the product to a group or sub group:
  • The same procedure mentioned above in "install from EPO" section can be applied, but only the step 4 and step 5 would change :

Step 4 : Select the group in the system tree.

Step 5 : click on "Assigned Client Task " -> New client task assignment.

 

Hope that helps 🙂

Thankyou,

Re: About Patch 14 installation VSE 8.8

Hello,

Thanks for your post.

Yes you are correct for installing the patch on client machine your steps are fine.

If you are going to deploy from ePO please create a product update task and scheduled it as Run Immediately or the schedule option you like.
Once the task is created please send a wake up agent call using force option.

Below are the steps"
If the VSE Patch is in Evaluation or Previous Branch, In that case first go to the system tree>Select the machine>Actions>Modify/Edit Policies on a single system>Select McAfee Agent >general policy>Edit>Duplicate>go to the updates tab and change the VSE Setting to the branch where you have checked the VSE Patch 14  package and save the policy.
If you are not duplicating the policy then the policy is going for all the machines.

Once the policy save , Send a wake-up agent call to the client machine so the policy will get applied.

After that create a Product Update Task:
Select the machine>Actions>Modify/Edit Task on a Single Systems>New Client Task Assignment>McAfee Agent>Product Update>new Task:Select  VSE>Save and scheduled it for run immediately and send a wake up agent call to the machine.

The above steps is for single machine.
If you want to deploy on all the machine in single shot in that case check-in the package in Master Repository Current Branch and assigned the task to My Organization from client task catalog.
Not recommended to assign on all the machines.

Hi @RAVI3S,

Thank you for your post. Can you kindly please confirm if this is a fresh install of VSE 8.8 Patch 14?

If that's the case, you are spot on! the Setup should do the trick for standalone machines!
