Upgrade of ePO4.0 patch 5 to ePO4.5 patch 3


Yesterday, I tried to upgrade McAfee 4.0 p5 to ePO4.5p3, but was unsuccessful.  It is on a virtual machine running Server 2003.

i took a snapshot of the server before doing the update and have now reverted back to that snapshot.

I have never installed McAfee ePO before (other than in the test environments McAfee offer) and have never updated an ePO (again other than in the McAfee virtual environments they offer).

I would really appreciate some advice on how to do this.  Pointing me to relevent reading meerial would be greatly appreciated also.

Muchos gracias

Never done an upgrade to 4.5, but a few of the posts in here suggest first upgrading to patch 7 for ePO 4, they trying the upgrade to 4.5p3.

Maybe give that a try  first?

BTW- I have moved your post to the ePO forum for better attention.

Let me know any error pop installing ePO 4.5.

Use simple password for ePO authntication (without special characters) and atleast 10 digit.

Make sure windows login user have admin access. before starting installation make sure and stop any server tasks running.
