Update McAfee agent

When updating the agent does this action require a reboot?

Not normally, no. It is possible: but very unlikely. (I don't think I can remember a case where one was required.)

Re: Update McAfee agent

thanks much appreciated.

Re: Update McAfee agent

When I rolled out agent 5 quite a lot of machine popped up a message saying that a reboot was required (mainly servers). The latest agent seems to incorporate a lot of new functionality and new services so I'm not surprised. Unfortunately there are some issues with the new agent and I personally wouldn't upgrade until the next patch is made available.

Re: Update McAfee agent

Ok thanks for the insight. I will make a note of that

Re: Update McAfee agent

Hi harris_s,

Could you please confirm, if the issue is reproducible, (Reboot prompt after upgrading to MA 5.0). As i tried upgrading MA to 5.0 many times but never got a Reboot prompt.

Could you please share a screenshot, and what all Mcafee Point Products are installed on the affected machine.

Regards,

AJ

Re: Update McAfee agent
