Mcafee Agent 5.0.X EOL (KB91134). 5.6. just released, but still not in EPO software Manager ?

Jump to solution
Hello all: On December 27, 2018 McAfee announced EOL for McAfee agent 5.0.X. However, the 5.6.0.702 Agent was only released on Dec 11, 2018. A few points: 1) The EOL seems to be announced too early and does not provide enough time for customers. Should be EOL March 31, 2020 in my opinion. 2) The 5.6.X package is not available in the software manager yet, components have to be checked in manually. Just hoping McAfee will address these issues Thanks

The eol for ma 5.0.x is as it should be.  The 5.5.x agent is to replace that version, as well as the 5.6 agent, so it isn't as if there is an eol with no version in between. 

As for it not yet being in software manager, that is also as designed.  Each point product team chooses when to post it under software manager and for the agent, it is typically 3-4 weeks after release.  It should be posted soon.
