How to install 2 ePo 5.3.1 Servers and use 1 SQL server and Database ? What is the configuration in ePo ?

We have a project

In that case we have to install 2 differents ePo servers because we need one to communicate with the McAfee update services to download updates and new contents and a second one in a secure zone to manage the systems of several client separatly. We have design an infrastructure with these 2 ePo servers and a 1 SQL server were the database will be located and secured.

My question is do we need to declare the SQL instance in both servers or just on one that relay the communication between the ePo and the SQL ?

Thanks for your help l

Moved to ePO for faster handling

Why just not have the single ePO server which will pull the updates etc as you require and then to serve the clients in a  DMZ / secure zone use an agent handler. There is no need to have 2 separate ePO servers which would require there own SQL instance .

Hi

I agree with , it would be better for you to configure an Agent Handler in your Secure Zone / DMZ. We have done this to support our devices in the DMZ and clients off LAN connected via Public Access WiFi.

You can use the following White Paper (yes it refers to 4.5 but the technical details are still relevant) https://kc.mcafee.com/resources/sites/MCAFEE/content/live/PRODUCT_DOCUMENTATION/22000/PD22508/en_US/...

Hi Richard,

We have a project where we require to migrate ePO server to new cloud environment, so that will have new server hostname(DNS entry ) as well as new IP .

How will I migrate the existing set up to new environment(Is there any KB document for the same). Will I have to install a new ePO version or the existing set up backup will run on the fresh server.

PS: we are running ePO 4.6 patch 8.

Hi ,

It would be wise if you are not going for HA, have an ePO server and configure agent handler at another site.
