RE: EPO Patch 6 release notes

I like the sound of this:

22. Issue: Identification and remediation of duplicate McAfee Agent GUIDs through ePolicy Orchestrator was difficult.
(Reference: 494753)
Resolution: ePolicy Orchestrator now has preconfigured queries, actions, and server tasks to assist in managing the
resolution of duplicate McAfee Agent GUIDs.
Note: McAfee Agent versions 4.5 and 4.0 Patch 3 introduce support of the duplicated GUID regeneration request.

Yup, the whole guid idea was badly conceived and implemented...

Hint to McAfee, for most sites machine name / domain are unique, using those two plus a random guid (which should be generated when a host first calls home to ePO, regardless of what's in the registry) would completely solve the problem.
