Thanks in Adv for quickly help.
this is possible easily.
For existing Agent 4.8 deployments. Take care, because Agent 4.8 und Agent 5.x are quite different. Agent 5.x brings a new SysCore Version. Agent 4.x has never updated the SysCore. If there are some older systems with older McAfee Soft ware are managed with Agent 4.8 take a look at the support portal if the software is supported with Agent 5.x.
Hope this helps,
