How to Deploy VirusScan with ePO 4.0?

Hi,

I have deployed the Agent with ePO 4.0 without problems and now I need to push the installation of the VirusScan Enterprise client, but I don't have that option when I create a 'New Client Task'.

The only 'deploy' option I see is for the McAfee Agent (which works fine), but there are no options for 'deploy or install VirusScan'. See below:



1. Are there supposed to be other options available? (The software repository has the DAT, Engine and VirusScan Enteprise Language Pack downloaded).
2. I there a way to push VirusScan from ePO other than a Client Task?

Thank you for your help,

RE: How to Deploy VirusScan with ePO 4.0?

Thank you for the prompt reply tonyb99,

I have deployed the Agent already, but now I need to install VirusScan Enterprise 8.5 (so far the PCs only have the agent on them). How do I get VSE now on them?

TIA.

RE: How to Deploy VirusScan with ePO 4.0?



As Tony said, if you create a task of Product Deployment (McAfee Agent), you will have as options all of the packages you have checked into your repository.

RE: How to Deploy VirusScan with ePO 4.0?

JIA when they tagged that task as Mcafee agent deployment they mean it is the agent deploying software not that its the agent deployment.. easy to mistake if you havent read the documentation and user guides.

I would recommend that you run through the flash based guides accessible through the knowledgabase as these have all the info on most things.. like deployments

Excellent help!!!

My problem was that I had not checked in the installer for VSE - Thank you Jeff for the clue!

And thank you Tony for pointing out the flash guides: I had read the ePO manual quite thoroughly but it's a bit vague in some areas. I was not aware of the flash guides and they are great. These are the two I needed to resolve my problem:

How to push an ePO agent and VSE 8.58 software to a computer through ePO 4.0

ePO 4.0 - How to check in product installation software to the Master Repository

You've saved me a lot of wasted time! Thanks again!

I have deployed the agent on a client computer.
Now I'm trying to deploy Virus Scan 8.5 but when I try to check the list of software I find only :

epo Agent 3.6.0.

Where is the problem? I have pulled and the task has gone fine.

thanks
