Currently running ePO4.0patch6 on SQL2000 on a 2003 server with SP2.
The server has both SQL2000 and SQL2005 running.
If we are to upgrade ePO4.0 to 4.6, can I confirm following steps are correct please?
1. Migrate ePO4.0 DB from SQL2000 to SQL2005 - steps as follows (http://blog.jamzarwebdesign.com.au/?p=22)
2. Apply ePO 4.0 patch 7 (or do this first of all then move DB)
3. Run update following the steps in here (https://kc.mcafee.com/resources/sites/MCAFEE/content/live/PRODUCT_DOCUMENTATION/22000/PD22974/en_US/...)
Apart from taking DB backup before each steps, anything I should pay special attention to?
Many thanks for your help in advance.
in step 4 i would shut down the ePo Server fist an then backup the Database.
You can upgrade your ePolicy Orchestrator server from version 4.0 Patch 7 or version 4.5 Patch 3 or
later to version 4.6.
Before you begin Update the system that hosts your ePolicy Orchestrator server with the latest Microsoft
security updates. If you install a new Server, install the Virusscan at least.
A important is the read area SQL, read this area precise.
You can pay a special consultant if you have questions or you have not so much knowlede or time too.
After step 11 I would also recommend putting the database in 2005 mode (attaching a SQL 2000 database will set the mode to 2000 compatibility by default). Otherwise it could be that your ePO 4.5 install will fail (no SQL 2000 support).
