Question on migrating from 3.6.1 to 4.0?

Hi fellow techies,

I got stuck with the assignment from migrating our exisitng 3.6.1 ePO server to a new 4.0 server that we are standing up on a VM soon. The question I have is that I understand tha the sitelist.xml file is responible for pointing to the clients where to get their updates. And we have over a hundred listed SA repositories and stuff.

Can I just export the sitelist.xml from the 3.6.1 epo server. Then edit it by changing the servername and IP address in it. Then importing it into the C:\Program Files\McAfee\ePolicy Orchestrator\DB\ folder on the ePO 4.0 server? Will that work? And more importantly, will that get sent out to all the agents on their next ASCI?

I am just looking for a easy way to get all the existing clients to point to the new ePO server to communicate and get their updates without repushing out th agent from the ePO 4.0 server.

Thanks for any assistance!

RE: Question on migrating from 3.6.1 to 4.0?

there no "easy way" to point agents to new server.

you have 2 options:
upgrade in place 3.6 to 4 , then move it VM -- in this scenario you do nothing on client side, however more work on server side


create epo 4, on VM, then start migrate all clients -- in this scenario more work for to deploy new agents and etc.
