update client task will apply patches to VSE.. deployment task installs full versions..
assign update task to patch..
Client Task Catalog > McAfee Agent > Product Update > Chose "All Packages" (it doesn't hurt) or just "
this will look into repository for patches for VSE and install them.
No that is not working.
All clients do have daily Product Update Tasks.
You cant patch from 8.8P1 to 8.8P8
Than create deployment task for the full install and assign to client but chose to run once at the boot-up or timed interval.
It doesnt work.
There is alredy a deployment task for VSE 8.8 P8 for all systems, running on a daily schedule.
But those systems dont upgrade/install VSE 8.8P8 - i now assigned a Tag, then created a task to remove VSE once.
I dont see any other way.
Would be cool if you could chain tasks like : uninstall VSE && install VSE
Yes, but you cannot put them in dependency, e.g. IF Uninstall finished successful, then start Install.
That would be great, but it doesnt work, also i'm not sure if the topmost task really start first and waits till finished until next one starts ?
Also it does not work to queue up 2 tasks for same product, even if you want to uninstall+reinstall.
Thx tao, but P1 doesnt upgrade to anything at it seems.
So I try to do a scheduled VSE uninstall followed by a VSE 8.8P8 install, all with as smallest time-gap as possible.
Problem is, those machines are located in south-america AND local support is not very helpful at all.
