VirusScan 8.7 Repost Patch 4 question


We have ePO v4.5 with VirusScan v8.7 Repost Patch 3 in the Master Repository, when patch 4 came out we pulled that into the Master Repository as well.

Now v8.7i Repost Patch 4 is available, is there any benefit in removing repost patch 3 and the Hotfix/Patch 4 and just use the VirusScan repost patch 4 version.

I only ask as we when an deployment task runs, VirusScan 8.7 RP3 is installed THEN the Hotfix is installed afterwards. Would just one deployment install task (8.7 RP4) be better.

Cheers Andy

Re: VirusScan 8.7 Repost Patch 4 question

It's worth replacing the VSE87+P3 package with the VSE87+P4, so that any new installs are done in one go rather than waiting for the update - it just seems a bit more elegant to me

I would leave the P4 package in as well, though, since if you have any machines on P3 or lower they will need this to upgrade to P4 - they won't be able to use the combined package to apply just the patch.
