How to downgrade VirusScan Enterprise ScanEngine version in ePO

Jump to solution

Hello McAfee Community

System info:

  • ePO version:5.10.0
  • VSE Version:8.8.0.2114
  • Product Version (Agent):5.6.0.702
  • Required Scan engine version:6000.8403
  • Faulty Scan Engine version:6010.8670

I have a system where it is very important that e.g. ePO, DAT and Scanengine versions are exactly the ones approved for the system. 

Unfortunately, for unknown reasons, one of the servers has received too high a scan engine. 

Can I somehow downgrade the scan engine version again? And if, how?

Does the scan engien come within the VSE package?

While the 5100 scan engine (released in 2006) is still available for download here:

   http://download.nai.com/products/licensed/engine/intel/5100/eng-5100.zip

...it is considered end-of-support and end-of-life by McAfee; and therefore, you might not be able to effectively downgrade to it from a more modern, supported scan engine.

Hope this helps.

Hello LKS

Thank you very much for your replay to my question. 

I have followed the guide, but unfortunately without luck.

I downloaded "epo6000eng.zip" from this page https://www.mcafee.com/enterprise/en-us/downloads/security-updates.html and followed the guide at the Client node that had the wrong scan engine. 

Unfortunately the Scan Engine is still 6010.8670 and not 6000.8403 as hoped.

Is it not the right Scan Engine Package i have downloaded? 

Best Regards 

Henrik

From https://kc.mcafee.com/corporate/index?page=content&id=KB78037

"The old Scan Engine reaches EOL six months after elective downloads begin."

https://kc.mcafee.com/corporate/index?page=content&id=KB66741

Looks like 6000 is effectively End of Life now anyhow.

So the real problem is why you and your employer's procedures want you to run an out of date scan engine.

It always helps to solve the right problem.

Cheers,

Phil
