Migrating to a new AD Domain - ePO and MDE 7.2.4.2

Jump to solution

Hello All,

Or organization is going to be moving to a new AD domain in the coming months, and we're looking in to any issues that may pop up with ePO. From what I have read, ePO is not dependant on the domain, but Drive Encryption is. Is there a way to migrate everything without having to decrypt/encrypt machines? We have systems with MDE 7.2.4.2 (approx. 8,000+) and we do not have physical access to all of these systems: we manage ePO for our clients. It would be a massive undertaking to follow KB83802. Is there anyway to do it easily, or does it even need to be followed at all?

ePO 5.3.2

 

note: I am the McAfee "Subject-matter expert" but I am still learning about the role; i didn't have enough time to learn everything I needed from our previous SME before he left, so any help at all would be appreciated!!

Hi leezard,

I think what you are looking for is described here:

Statement regarding the migration of managed encrypted systems from one ePolicy Orchestrator server to another
Technical Articles ID: KB83186

At the bottom of the article you will see additional articles that discuss ePO migration as well.

You also might want to check with the drive encryption team for any additional suggestions.

thanks, i did check those articles originally, but we aren't creating a new ePO server. this is just migrating to a new AD forest, and looking for ways to make this as simple as possible.

thanks!

I would definitely get with the mde team then.  Anything changing ldap can have some serious consequenses, especially if you are using preboot authentication and user based policies.
