Upgrading ENS components

I will be upgrading W2008R2 onwards servers from ENS 10.6.0 and 10.6.1 to 10.7 February update from EPO 5.9.1 Can you advise do I need to remove the ENS components first (We use Platform, Threat Protection and ATP) or can I just push the new versions over the top of the old ones? Do they need to be rebooted after they are upgraded too?

Re: Upgrading ENS components

Hi @idsanalysts,

ENS supports in-place upgrade from 10.6 to 10.7.1. Feel free to deploy directly on top of existing version, however please perform a reboot after the upgrade.

In case of any issues, please update the thread and We shall look into it for you.

However, if you decide to go for removal process, please remove ENS and then reboot the machine before you try deploying newer version of ENS on it!

Re: Upgrading ENS components

Hello idsanalysts,

Thank you for posting in McAfee Community, The reported Endpoint Security version is compatible for In-place upgrade, refer following table for same.

Reboot might require to load services and process of McAfee Endpoint Security.

Guide: Upgrade to McAfee Endpoint Security 10.7.x -

You can use multiple deployment methods to upgrade to McAfee Endpoint Security 10.7.x on your endpoints. You can upgrade from version 10.2.x, 10.5.x, or 10.6.x.
The method you choose for deploying the product software to endpoints depends on not only your environment and your goals for the installation, but also your preferences and department policies for tools.


Upgrading more than one product?

Using third-party tool?

Using McAfee ePO?

Use this method




Endpoint Upgrade Assistant




IBM BigFix

Microsoft System Center Configuration Manager (SCCM)

Tanium Deploy




McAfee ePO 5.10.x or

McAfee ePO 5.9.x





Product installer (SetupEP)


You can upgrade these products to Endpoint Security 10.7.x:

• McAfee® Endpoint Security 10.2.x
• McAfee® Endpoint Security 10.5.x
• McAfee® Endpoint Security 10.6.x
• McAfee® VirusScan® Enterprise 8.8
• McAfee® Host Intrustion Prevention (McAfee Host IPS) 8.0
NOTE: Host Intrusion Prevention can run alongside Endpoint Security. Whenever McAfee Host IPS Firewall is installed and enabled, Endpoint Security Firewall is disabled, even if enabled in the policy settings.
• McAfee® SiteAdvisor Enterprise 3.5
• McAfee® Endpoint Security Threat Intelligence 10.2

Best practice: If you are moving to Endpoint Security from a legacy product (VirusScan Enterprise, McAfee Host IPS, SIteAdvisor Enterprise, or Threat Intelligence), run the McAfee® Endpoint Upgrade Assistant. With this tool you can also run the Endpoint Migration Assistant, which saves and converts your existing settings to use with Endpoint Security.

Refer following KBA for compatible McAfee Agent and Endpoint Security
