Looking for some input on this upgrade path, currently have a single w2k8 EPO 4.6 infrastructure that supports all my companies laptops and server devices around ~10,000 devices. Since I have recentely taken over the McAfee duties, I was looking to spin up a new EPO 5.3 server and migrate ONLY the servers to this new 2012 server and leave all of the laptops on the older 2008 server.
question is, what benefits besides not waiting for the client side upgrade issues (packages, version supports) that I can sell to a manager to get the laptop and old 2008 server handed off to the desktop team?
appreciate any input on this as I would love to give the desktop guys their own environment and spin up a new 2012 server with new DB and ePO 5.3 and just slowly migrate the servers off the old epo to the new one and keep the desktops on their old epo
