Upgrading McAfee DE - steps in EPO

Hi all

I'm planning to upgrade my McAfee Drive Encryption from 7.2.6.11 to 7.2.8.4

Aside from updating the main package, do I need to update the extensions in EPO Software Manager?

Re: Upgrading McAfee DE - steps in EPO

Yes, you need to upgrade the extensions also.  Extensions provide policies, tasks, and other backend management functionalities of the point product in epo and the extensions must always match or be higher, not lower than the versions of products installed on the clients.  Extension build numbers won't match client build numbers, but they should be from the same version of product you are deploying or higher, as they are backward compatible for managing lower version clients.

I would hold out for a couple of weeks anyway, as Drive Encryption 7.2.9 is scheduled for release July 23rd so no point rolling out 7.2.8 then having to roll out 7.2.9 🙂

7.2.8.4 is stable and been around since last Dec....so I don't mind moving to this version...

Yes, install both extensions and I don't believe the order matters, but you can check with the drive encryption team to be sure.  They are more familiar with their product that they support.
