Best way to update 8.7i Patch1 to 8.7i Patch 2?


I have downloaded 8.7i with Patch 2, we currently use 8.7i with Patch 1.  I have a policy they installs the agent then the scanner straight after in the same task.  I have never had to update the Mcafee Virus Scanner as yet, what is the best way of doing this?

first of all you have to checkin package in software. you can have a policy  created to deploy agent and dont forget to tick

i will also ask you to type in the following command in the mcafee agent 4.5 :  framepkg.exe /upgrade

the upgarde should be done.

If you check in Patch 2 and Global Updating is enabled the patch will deploy to every machine when they next communicate or someone runs a right click Update Now.

I checked in Patch 8 for VSE 8.5 and it deployed to every machine because Global updating was enabled.

Please correct me if im wrong.
