how to upgrade the Windows to recent version

I know that ePO solution is doing patch and distribution work.

However, there is no description about the ability to upgrade to windows10 from windows7, 8, or previous version 10.

I looked at the product manual(epo_590_pg_0b17_ko-kr.pdf) and it seemed that the contents of the os (windows) related update were not enough.

Let me know how to upgrade Windows OS version!

Re: how to upgrade the Windows to recent version

Hi areum,

To be honest with you (taking the McAfee Staff hat off) I'd really not want anything other than the 'other vendors' own solution to manage an Operating system upgrade.

Re: how to upgrade the Windows to recent version

seems a very strange place to field this question - as Hawkmoon suggested, go to microsoft and look for details on your specific upgrade path, its generally pretty straight forward, but following a Microsoft guide is the way to go!

Re: how to upgrade the Windows to recent version

I want the way that patch management products offer (like Altiris from Symantec) rather than the way Microsoft provides.

Doesn't McAfee's ePO offer such a feature?

Re: how to upgrade the Windows to recent version

Altiris was a patch management solution in its own right, its only because Symantec acquired (bought them out) in 2007 that they were able to fold it into their endpoint offering.

 

McAfee hasn't gone down this route as far as I'm aware so no I dont believe you can do any Windows patch management using McAfee.

Hi areum

The short answer is 'no' ePO will not mange your operating system upgrade! 

You really need to chat to MS about such things, sorry!
