The new EPO Agent 4.5 has not been released yet as it is still under the beta section as a Release Candidate. Not too sure when it is going to be released. I am currently test ePO 4.5 and have my test clients using 184.108.40.2068 agent which is still supported.
Okay. I still don't understand why it shows up in the extensions as 4.5, but either way I suppose I will just have to wait. Is there an estimate on when Agent 4.5 will be released? My x64 systems are still reporting as Non-Compliant because Agent 4.0 doesn't report their properties correctly, and the next agent was supposed to fix that.
If you have Agent 4.5 extensions already checked in then I guess that McAfee have gone gold on those extensions only (and included it in EPO 4.5), and they are still finishing beta testing on the actual deployment code.
I signed up to test Agent 4.5 RC1, and so far I am a little dissappointed. The problem I was having with ePO 4.0 and Agent 4.0 is that some of my Vista x64 systems would stop reporting certain info to ePO which would cause ePO to think they were non-compliant. Specifically, they would stop showing that VirusScan was even installed on the system. I read somewhere that 4.5 was supposed to correct that issue but so far it has not. Also, the x64 systems show a separate icon in the system tray for the agent whereas the x86 combine the agent and vscan icons. The second item is not a big deal, just slightly annoying.
