VSE 8.8P1 to P8 via client tasks

Hi !

I have this situation in a international company:

Got some clients that got VSE 8.8 P1 installed (by local IT)

Got VSE 8.8P8 in "current" branch on ePO

I cant directly upgrade VSE

What i want to do/configure:

As soon as a client with that old version connects to ePO

- VSE 8.8P1 should be uninstalled

- VSE 8.8P8 should be downloaded vom ePO/Repository

I want to have the gap with no VSE as short as possible, but those systems are located out of my time-zone, so I cant do it manually.

Any idea how to configure client tasks for this ?

Re: VSE 8.8P1 to P8 via client tasks

update client task will apply patches to VSE.. deployment task installs full versions..

assign update task to patch..

Client Task Catalog > McAfee Agent > Product Update > Chose "All Packages" (it doesn't hurt) or just "

this will look into repository for patches for VSE and install them.

No that is not working.

All clients do have daily Product Update Tasks.

You cant patch from 8.8P1 to 8.8P8

Than create deployment task for the full install and assign to client but chose to run once at  the boot-up or timed interval.

It doesnt work.

There is alredy a deployment task for VSE 8.8 P8 for all systems, running on a daily schedule.

But those systems dont upgrade/install VSE 8.8P8 - i now assigned a Tag, then created a task to remove VSE once.

I dont see any other way.

Would be cool if you could chain tasks like : uninstall VSE && install VSE

you should be able to chain task.. under the current task just hit the button to add additional step under same deployment task.

Yes, but you cannot put them in dependency, e.g. IF Uninstall finished successful, then start Install.

That would be great, but it doesnt work, also i'm not sure if the topmost task really start first and waits till finished until next one starts ?

Also it does not work to queue up 2 tasks for same product, even if you want to uninstall+reinstall.

Perhaps,

  1. Upgrade to VSE 8.8 P7.
  2. Reboot.3
  3. (Recommended) Upgrade to VSE 8.8 P8.

Re: VSE 8.8P1 to P8 via client tasks

Thx tao, but P1 doesnt upgrade to anything at it seems.

So I try to do a scheduled VSE uninstall followed by a VSE 8.8P8 install, all with as smallest time-gap as possible.

Problem is, those machines are located in south-america AND local support is not very helpful at all.
