McAfee ePO 5.3.0 and support for Agent 5.x

Jump to solution

With the release of McAfee Agent 5.0.1, is there any reason why the latest McAfee ePO 5.3.0 does not support the agent 5.x versions? I can't find anywhere in the release notes support for agent 5.x. The ePO 5.3.0 software manager only shows agent 4.8. We are planning on migrating to ePO 5.3.0 from 5.1.1 soon. Luckily, we are still on 4.8x agents due to issues being reported with the 5.0 agent. Now that agent 5.01 has been released, I am surprised the lack of support for what is the latest ePO version.

Hi, it's totally supported to use MA 5.0.1 with ePO 5.3.0.

It's on page 1 of the MA 5.0.1 release notes in the grey box:

"McAfee Agent 5.0.1 can be used only with McAfee ePO server 5.1.1 or later. You can manage previous

versions of McAfee Agent with the 5.0.1 extension, but previous versions of the Agent extensions

cannot manage McAfee Agent 5.0.1 clients."
