Convention name (8dot3) on Disaster recovery on ePO 5.10

Jump to solution

Hello,

I have made a disaster recovery on ePO 5.10 following this KB : https://kc.mcafee.com/corporate/index?page=content&id=KB66616

But convention name was enable on the older server and in the config file, Program Files is replace with "PROGRA~1" and ePolicy Orchestrator with "EPOLIC~1"

 

What do you recommand ? Replace every config with the good path ? Or set short name on those folder ?

(Installation was not made on the default hard drive c:)

 

Thanks.

You can either follow KB71078 to change all the file paths (which can cause problems if not done properly) or you can follow KB51431 to enable 8.3 and if necessary, KB82122 to manually set the 8.3 path for epo.
