Moving systems from 4.5 Server to 4.6 Server

Jump to solution

I was wondering.

Is there a way to move systems between a ePO 4.5 server and a ePO 4.6 Server?

I want to make a gradual migration from ePO 4.5 to ePO 4.6

Thanks in Advance!

You can either create a connection between your 4.5 and 4.6 servers and migrate them over this way:

Go to the System Tree, select systems you wish to move, click the Action button, go to Agent > Transfer Systems, ans choose your 4.6 server

OR

Leave your 4.5 and 4.6 servers as seperate entities. As you migrate systems over, you will have to force an install of the 4.6 agent over any exisiting agents.

Hope that helps!

Won't I have problems registering an ePO 4.6 server as a registered server in ePO 4.5? Are they fully compatible?

I've been told by a "McAfee Professional" that came to our site from a vendor that it's possible. He couldn't get it to work, though

We're using the second method

I have successfully used it in my last customer consultings.

Hi Thiago

I can confirm that you can register a 4.6 server with a 4.5 server.

Works fine here, and as per ittech's post, you can use the transfer systems method to move them to the new server.
