EPO 4.6 Design Guidance

Jump to solution

Hi All

I am new to the forum and to Mcafee products. I am looking for some design guidance for EPO 4.6 rollout.  Our AD is flat with 4 sites. Plan is to implement one EPO server and respository at each site use http with apache instead of UNC for repostory.

OK - but if you are concerned about bandwidth usage, I strongly recommend you use lazy caching, and not replication tasks. Otherwise you could be using a lot of bandwidth unnecessarily.

Rajeev,

I need more information before I can give you assistance.

How many client-nodes in your environment?

How fat are the network pipes between the sites?

Do you know of any constraints?

That will be a good start.

Regards,

Mark

Primary Site around 2000 on secondary it varies. Overall  all around 3500.  Connectivity varies from fractional t1 to. Regarding contraints there appear to be none as far as I know.

Overall the design sounds fine - it all depends on how many remote sites there are, and how many machines per site. This controls whether or not it is worth putting a distributed repository on a remote site.

From what you're describing, I think an MA 4.6 Superagent on each site, in Lazy Caching mode, is probably a good approach.

Thanks Joe

That is the intent have full copy  and updates with replication which conserve the bandwith.
