How to manually upgrade existing CMA 3.6.0 to CMA 3.6.0 Patch4 ?

Jump to solution

Hello,

We have an updating problem on one Windows NT client running CMA 3.6.0.574. To potentially fix this problem, we would like to upgrade the CMA to 3.6.0.608 (patch 4) without the use of ePO push. We have downloaded CMA 3.6 P4 installation zip from McAfee download site.

We attempted unzipping the package on the client to a temp folder and running frminst.exe /install=agent /sietinfor=(full path to an existing sitelist.xml), and some installation windo appeared, but it did not upgrade the existing CMA as seen from the agent browser log.

Can we manually upgrade the CMA on this host using the downloaded package?

Or can we use our ePO 4 server with this package while we preserve the most current McAfee Agent 4.x in ePO (and its installation set) intact and functioning (for push, for example)?

Thank you for any advice.

Attila

Oops, my apologies - it's included in the MA4.x packages but not in the CMA packages.

It's available as a separate item on the CMA 360 page on the download site (you'll need your grant number.)

In the Patch 4 package, there should be a standalone updater called framepkg_upd.exe.  If you run this manually on the machine it should upgrade the agent, preserving the existing sitelist.

There is not one. There is only frminst.exe (apart from the usual frameworkservice.exe and several framework*.* files)

Not even a .EXE that looks like an installer/updater.
