    MVM3000 vs 6.7

      Hi all

       

      Are the MVM3000 appliances fully compatible with the FS/MVM version 6.7? can they be used the same way as FS-850 appliances? differences?

       

      Thank you

       

      Regards

       

      Martin

          Hi Martin,

           

          Thank you for your question.

           

          Yes! The MVM3000 supports MVM 6.7 as well as the role of a dedicated scanning engine like the discontinued FS850.

           

          In fact, the MVM3000 introduces an all new way of deploying McAfee Vulnerability Manager and its different components. The MVM3000 comes with a software configuration DVD that includes all of the currently supported versions of MVM as well as the enterprise class database. This allows you to deploy the MVM3000 appliance with any supported version of the software as well as into any role you see fit for the device. It's a very powerful, datacenter ready appliance with dual power supplies, out of band management, and RAID. It's just as capable of being deployed as a dedicated scanning engine, or as a high end MVM database server.

           

          You're free to choose!

            Hi Brian,

             

            What version of Foundstone comes on the new appliances? What version is shipped on the restore disks with the systems? (6.5, 6.7 or 6.8)

             

            Thanks

              Thanks Brian - next question! :-D

               

              How do we add a MVM3000 as an Scan Appliance then?

               

              => Log in as Organisation Admin

              => Engines

              => Add FS850

              ?

               

              or do we need a patch/update for the MVM 6.7?

                The current shipping MVM 3000 will have 6.0, 6.5, and 6.7 but will be refreshed soon to reflect 6.0 being EOL and our latest release, 6.8.

                  Adding a scan engine is pretty easy. During the initial configuration of the MVM 3000 you will be asked for the IP Address of the DB and FCServer. Once those are supplied the MVM 3000 Scan Engine will add into your environment. Once the engine has been added you will need to make it available for scanning.

                   

                  1. Login as GlobalAdmin
                  2. Right clicking organization and select properties
                  3. Go to the scan engine tab and selecting the new scan engine

                   

                  You will now see that scan engine under Manage Engines and it will be available for use when modifying or creating a scan configuration.

                   

                  One additional note is that the FS850 is no longer a shipping product.

                    How can it have all three versions? It comes with one on it. Which one is it?

                    Thanks

                      Hi Bin,

                       

                      When the MVM3000 arrives it has a hardened version of the OS and supporting software. MVM (Foundstone) is not installed at that point. In the shipping package though there are 2 disks and one of those will have the current and previous two versions of MVM on it. During the initial MVM3000 configuration you will be prompted to choose which version of MVM you want to install.

                       

                      I've attached the MVM3000 Quick Start Guide to this post for you to review.

                          Hi Bin,

                          Most of our EOL information is accessible from the McAfee website  on the McAfee Product and Technology Support Lifecycle page. There is also an appliance tab for you to reference. The only product I don't see listed is the IWILL hardware which went EOL a few years ago.
