McAfee agent files location + EPO upgrade

Jump to solution

Hi guys.

Two questions.

QUESTION1:

We have checked in McAfee Agent 4.8 and 5.0. Where are those installation files (for 4.8 and 5.0 seperately) stored on filesystem on EPO server?

QUESTION2:

Currently we are on EPO 5.1.1 (build: 357). I see in Software manager that there is possiblity to check in EPO 5.3 version.

Is it wise to upgrade it? What are the benefits from this two versions?

Upgrading it is next/next procedure?

Hi

Question 1:

All the Master Repository files reside on the disk for all three branches and can be found in <epoinstallfolder>/DB/Software/<branch>/<softwareID>. For example VSE  in the Current would be found in <epoinstallfolder>/DB/Software/Current/VIRUSSCAN8000

Question 2:

You can run the new Pre-installation/upgrade check tool to determine if your system is ready for an upgarde. Details for the new tool are available here.

I would recommend you upgrade to 5.1.3 which was released in June 2015.

The ePO support strategy can be reviewed here and other are asking the same question on this thread.

Hi

These are all management extensions. You have two options for these extensions:

  1. Uninstall extensions for product you do not use Menu > Software >Extensions, select the extension in the left cloumn, select 'Remove' far right
  2. Upgrade the Extension for prodcuts you do use. Go to your Grant download page, find the product and download the updated ePO Extension (zip file) and use the install Extension option (bottom left) of the Menu > Software > Extensions page in ePO.
