ePO 4.0 Agents on SQL 2005 Cluster

Jump to solution

Hello,


Happy Valentine's Day....

My company/agency has few SQL 2005 Server Clusters.  I would like to ask if ePO 4.0 agents can be deployed on SQL 2005 cluster. 
My search for this subject (ePO 4.0 Agent on SQL 2005 Cluster) on McAfee KB turned up the following paragraph:

Clustering
Clustering is supported in this release. For instructions on installing a cluster as part of a first-time installation, see the installation guide. For instructions on installing a cluster as part of an upgrade, see article KB 613778.

[https://community.mcafee.com/thread/22282]

I would to ask few related questions.

Q1: Does the above statement mean that ePO can be installed on cluster of servers? (This question is not related to my situation, though.)

Q2: Does ePO 4 support clustered SQL 2005 servers? Or from different angle, can I install/deploy ePO 4.0 agents on SQL 2005 clustered servers?

Q3: If the answer to Q2 is NO, then will ePO 4.5 support clustered SQL 2005 servers?

Q4: If the answer to both Q2 and Q3 is NO, then does McAfee plan to support clustered SLQ 2005 servers?

Thank you in advance for your assistance.

I'm not entirely sure I understand your questions - but, in a nutshell, the agent is not cluster-aware: to cover both nodes of a cluster you need to install an agent on each node. They get reported to ePO as two separate machines and treated as individuals.

Hi Joe Bidgood,


Honestly, I did not know exactly how to phrase my questions either.

Howerver, your reply is clear, being that ePO treats each client individually regardless of a single machine or part of a cluster.

Thanks very much Joe (yep, Joe Bidgood!).
