Product deployment of agent to 5.05 version will not affect the communication between agent and ePO. To test the solution, you can create a sub tree with 5 - 10 machines.
Create a Product deployment client task for agent 5.05 version and schedule it to run immediately. Machine will get upgraded to latest version without an issue. Post testing you can create a task in parent tree for migrating all the machines.
For Machines where windows anniversary updated, Only 5.05 version is compatible so you have to remove the agent manually on those systems and install the latest one.
very thanks for your help
I really concern about the new version not update old one and the communication failed , does it have any need to first remove VSE and then update it? or it automate compatible with VSE ?How can I have two versions of mcafee agent in epo for test machines?
when I update my VSE into 188.8.131.528 and patch 9,many of my systems have problem with their performance and in task manager the on access scanner service increase memory up to 70 percent and my systems do not work, what should I do?
should I downgrade my VSE?
Product deployment task to upgrade MA agent to 5.05 is to upgrade the agent to latest versions. There is no need to remove VSE for upgrading. you can go ahead and test the deployment in one or two machines, by which all your above concerns will get answered.
5.05 is compatible with VSE patch 9 and you should work on VSE on access scan exclusions for Performance issue.
can I have two different agent and two different vse in one epo?if yes,how to do this?because for a test I need to have both of them.
for the performance how can I do exclusion?which files not necessary and I can exclude them?my mcshield.exe is the reason of high cpu and disk and when I Need some processes not scan, should I insert them in low-risk processes?in low risk does it recognize threats as trusted when I insert them into low risk processes?
