Install VSE 8.8 Patch 4 From Evaluation Branch

Jump to solution

I am attempting to test VSE 8.8 P4 now, and running into an issue. I have placed both the full install and P4 into the Eval branch. As a first attempt and for testing purposes, I am trying to deploy this patch to members of my team. I configured a Client Task to install, but it fails. I suspect this is because it is the full install as noted above, and requires that VSE be uninstalled first, and then this run. Unfortunately, I can't do this, because we are using Cisco NAC and one of our requirements is AV. The minute I uninstall VSE, I will no longer be able to connect to our network. This would not be a viable option going forward.

So then I look at the Patch 4 package alone. While this would most likely work, I am not sure how to deploy it. I configured a Product Update task, but as far as I know, you are unable to specify branch or specifics. In this case, the patch has to be in Current for the agent to pick it up. If I place the patch in Current and run the job quickly to update my PC, there is still a chance that another PC will update in the meantime and pick up the patch as well. This is not really a good method for testing.

Can anyone tell me a good way that I can deploy VSE 8.8 Patch 4 to a handful of computers without affecting other computers? This seems ridiculous that I can't do this easily through ePO. Perhaps I am missing something obvious.

Hello,

just build up a new McAfee Agent Policy for these Clients (common policy) and configure it within the update section properly. In your case the Systems should take the Updates for VSE 8.8 only out of the Evalutation tree.
