migrating to Epo v5

Hello everyone.

We are in the process of migrating our Epo from v4.6 to v5. We went the route of building a brand new server (2008 r2) and a fresh Epo v5 (instead of upgrading the current v4.6).

We have no got a lot of the workstations transferred to the new Epo but I was wondering if there were an easier way of dealing with the remains 200 or so. These are still using the old agent talking to the 4.6 epo. Is there an easy way to re-direct these to the new Epo server.

Sorry if this seems a simple question, I am new to this and have just inherited the job from a guy who left work.

Thanks in advance.

Hi richard williams, if you already used the "Trasnfer systm" option under your epo server ad you still have a significant amount of them that still talk to the old epo server then I think the easiest way to deal with them woult be re-dploying McAfee Agent to them forcing instalation over existing one.

Re: migrating to Epo v5

hi Laszlo    thanks for the reply. I didnt use the system transfer option,instead just deployed some rougue sensors and deployed the new agent to the systems as the were picked up.

Is it possibke to still use the transfer option for the remaining systems? I don't have this second server registered in the original epo, will this be a problem?

Thanks again

Yes, you will need to register the new epo server onto the old one. Then you'll have to export security keys from old epo server and import them to the new one so deployed agents can communicate with new epo server.

Once this is done you'll be able to transfer systems from the old epo server to the new one

Re: migrating to Epo v5

I have old epo 4.5.4 which I want to migrate to a epo 5. My problem is that when I try to register the new epo onto the old epo the only choice I get for epo version is 4.5. I don't know what happens of I choose 4.5 instead of correct 5.0. I don't want to damage the old installation...

Have anyone succeeded registering epo 5 in epo 4.5?

(Sorry for bumping...)

Hi earch, don't worry. Even if it displays ePO 4.5 you can register any ePO server newer or equal to 4.5
