console/server unsupported (i use 7 myself on epo server with epo 4)
4.5 supports 8 on server
no other issues with agent or vse that I have seen
Do you know if the epo console works if IE8 is in compatiblity mode?
We use ePO 4.0 with IE 8 without problems from servers 2003 R2, Xp,null Vista and 7
Yes there is a difference between it working (usually does) and Mcafee actually saying they will support you on it.
but I wouldnt like to be left on a limb when things go bad and Mcafee take a look at the server MER result and say "soorry we dont support you configuration"
I updated our epo 4.0 server with IE8 and it broke several policies. I can't edit those policies for 8.0 clients anymore... I just see a blank screen on the server and remotely. I attempted to remove IE8 and downgrade to 7, but that created a mess... I couldn't use IE at all at that point. I ran iefix and was able to get it back to version 6 and then installed 7 again.
Tier 3 support suggested that I reload Windows, but I'd rather not start over. I'll just update the clients to 8.7 as I can. We have a ton of old PCs in a manufacturing environment, so this won't be something that will be done right away.
My suggestion is that if you're worried about updating the browser when an important app runs on it, make a ghost image of it first. I wish I would have.
