Currently we are having VSE 8.8.0 Patch 8 and Agent 5.0.4, we are planning to upgrade it to 8.8.0 Patch 13. This upgrade will be for Windows 2008 R2 servers , 2016 servers, Win 7 machines. Can we upgrade directly from Patch 8 to Patch 13? Also Patch 13 will work for these machines?

Hi @User45191637 

Good questions! As per the release notes of Patch 13, I am afraid direct upgrade to Patch 13 from Patch 8 is not possible. The supported patches for direct upgrade starts from Patch 9. Hence, You will have perform the upgrade in 2 stages.

1) Check-in and assign Upgrade task for Patch 9 (or 10 or 11 or 12 - anyone of these). 

2) Once Upgrade to a supported Patch is completed, you can now apply patch 13 using a separate task.

*Note: Patch updates do not only reply on the task. Task tells the endpoints WHAT to update, however the McAfee Agent Policy defines WHERE to update from.

I sincerely hope this helps.
