Releasing DAT files from the Evaluation Branch for testing

I am running epo 4.0, VSE 8.5 and agent 3.6

I am able to download DAT files to the "evaluation" branch using an automated Pull task. I can then manually move the DATs to the "current" branch where a client task distributes them to all systems.

What I want to be able to do is release the DAT file from the "evaluation" branch directly to 2 systems for local testing prior to releasing to all systems via the "Current" branch. As I am running agent 3.6 is this possible? And how can I do it? If not how else can I test the DAT files on 2 systems prior to system wide release?

I think you need to be running the epo 4.0 agent in order to be able to tell specific machines to use the eval branch rather than the current one

Nope Smiley Wink

Just go to the ePO agent Configuration settings and on the "Updates" tab you should be able to selct any repository Branch for DAT updates for the client - same for engine/superdat and extradat updates as well - can select different branches for each.

Silly question then, where can I find the "ePO agent Configuration settings" :confused:

RE: Releasing DAT files from the Evaluation Branch for testing

I wanna nearly to the same as scottboz with the difference that I want to test a patch for VSE 8.5 from the evaluation branch directly on 2-3 systems before I distribute it to all systems.

How does this work?

You cant - only DATs and Engines can be put into the Evaulation branch.

You will need to install the Patch manually on the target PC to test it out.

RE: Releasing DAT files from the Evaluation Branch for testing

Sorry, but also patches can be put into the evalutation branch.
At the moment I have VSE 8.5 patch 6.1 in current and patch 7 in the evaluation branch.

The problem is that I'm not able to deploy patch 7 for testing or I make something wrong...
