Yes, but there is one problem, EPO installs with Microsoft SQL Server 2008 R2 Express version and SQL Management for Express edition des not have maintenance plans feature.
So I have to buy full version of SQL Server 2008 R2 to do this?
I don't believe so, no, but it does mean you'll have to do it manually rather than through a maintenance plan. I'm not a SQL expert, though, so I'm not entirely sure how one would go about it. I believe MS's site has info about how to rebuild SQL indices; maybe you can adapt that for your SQL server using the info in the ePO SQL Maintenance Plan.
I ran into the same issue - McAfee running on SQL Express. I downloaded and installed Server Management Studio on the SQL server, then went to this link:
Downloaded the RebuildReorganizeIndexes-V4.zip file, changed the .sql file to point to my database name then executed the script. It fixed the problem so I could continue with the upgrade.
When I ran into this issue I installed SQL Server Management Studio (you can use the SQL Server Disk or you can download). You are correct, the Express Version does not have the ability to create a Management Task nor a SQL Server Agent job. However, the easiest way to tackle this was to (in Studio) right click on your database and create a query. Take the entire contents of the file RebuildReorganizeIndexes-V4.sql (changing the EDITABLE entries as required) into the query window and execute it.
