ePO Server Move

Hi All,

Just wondering if anybody has come across this problem with ePO and found a solution.
Present Solution:
ePO 4.0 Build 1221
+- 1100 nodes (of these 400 laptops on road)
Global sites from USA to Australia
Agent 4.0
Virusscan 8.5i


1.Migrate to new server
2.Change IP Address and server name
3.Move location of server

Have spoken directly to McAfee and they say I can do all of the above but I would need to re-install the agents on all the nodes again. I find this not really productive and also time consuming. I have also asked if I could setup the new ePO server with the new name etc and run the two on the same domain and then this will allow me time to slowly re-install the agents but still allow me to manage them. McAfee said I cannot have two ePO servers on the same domain.

Does anyone have any ideas on how to get around this issue, does ePO 4.5 cater maybe for this issue.

    RE: ePO Server Move

    We are currently upgrading/moving our clients from one epo 3.6 (VSE 8.5 and Agent 3.6) to a new epo 4.5 server (VSE 8.7 and Agent 4.x) without any problems and both servers are in the same domain.
    Last year we moved other clients from epo 3.0.x to epo 4.0 and both servers were also in the same domain, also no problems there.

    In epo 4.5 you can move clients between epo servers (new feature, not tested yet).

    this info from mcafee is b****s of course you can run more than one, right up till you integrate AD with the second. You can happily setup a second server and then gradually move over all your settings and policies and take your pick in agent migration strategies ( ie how you install the new one over the old one (remeber access protection or hips policies may block you so tweak them)

    I've got 3 on one domain right now, 2 doing diff things to diff areas ( 3.6.1 and 4.0 and one test 4.5)
