Dear Sir,


During the upgrading of ePO, would it cause any disruption/limitation/degrading to users machine to prevent their normal usage including whitelisted USB devices?

Dear @DerChan 

I do not see any issues as such. All I recommend you is to run the upgrade compatibility check list which would provide you the feasibility study, based on which you could proceed further wihtout having any issues.

I wish you good luck!!!!!!!

During the upgrade, apache services are off, so systems will not be able to connect to epo for any policy changes.  They will use the policies they already have on their system, so there should be no issues in that regard.

Having done this not too long ago, the only interruption is to the administration side of things. All endpoints will still have their policies applied and work as intended.

Users wont even know something has happened 🙂


Best of luck
