yes epo manages an agent on the workstations that then runs the updates for daily dats patches software and can be used to add and remove mcafee software, also it does policy enforcement and malware reporting

watch some videos of how to do things here:
I'm installing SQL 2008 Express too, is this ok or best stick with 2005 express?
I would stick with SQL 2005 Express.
And dont worry - EPO4 is straight forward - I learnt it after a few weeks of playing around with it. Just imagine it as something that tells your workstations Anti Virus installs what to do and where to report to.. Ive tried other AV solutions and EPO is certainly the best corporate tool for PC management.
I guess you can use ePolicy to somehow push an agent to a PC and then update the DAT and policies and even the scanner itself? We have many version of McAfee 8.0 8.5 and 8.7i. I need them all to be 8.7i.
That can all be done in EPO 4. In fact Im rolling out 8.5 to 8.7 upgrades as I type this happy
I'm going through one of those videos now.
I'm going to try the agent install just on my PC. However it says my agent version to install will be 4.0.0(current) How do i get 4.5 in there like in the video? My ePolicy that I have just installed is 4.5?
Also my test system says it is unmanaged, how do I make this managed?
the macfee agent 4.5 is still in pre release till late sep/early oct and has not yet been released.
so you cant just use 4.0 for now
PS why did you say you were using epo 4.0 if you were using epo 4.5?
they are a bit different you know
Sorry My mistake - "PS why did you say you were using epo 4.0 if you were using epo 4.5?
they are a bit different you know "
if you are dropped into it then at least you may find 4.5 easier, its a massive change between 3.6xx and 4.0 but not so much between 4.0 and 4.5
