McAfee VirusScan 8.5 Patch 8 & Windows Server 2008 R2

Jump to solution

Hi,

I

have a group in EPO for Windows Server 2008 machines and there is a task set on this group to install AV 8.5 and Antispyware 8.5.

A few days back I was going through different groups when I realized that half of the Server 2008 machines have no AV installed.

With some research, I was able to filter all server 2008 machines where the group task was not able to install AV 8.5.

Surprisingly, all of the servers that didn't have any AV on them were Server 2008 R2 and when I tried to manually install AV on these Server 2008 R2 boxes, windows yells at me, saying:

'this program is blocked due to compatibility issues' -----(Please find attached the screenshot)

There is nothing officially[]  announced by McAfee that 8.5 is not supported in server 2008, either way, if that would be the case, then AV 8.5 wouldn't get installed on half of the server 2008 systems that are not R2!

Any suggestions/recommendations?

Thanks,

BJ
