I have three questions. I hope I will get the answers for all the three:
We are doing product deployment of Viruscan Enterprise 8.7 & Mcafee 4.5 manually. With word "manually" I mean that we do have a Task which installs Mcaffe & Viruscan when new computer is added in our Active Directory, but due to the experiences in the past, we usually do a manual installation of Agent&Viruscan by installing exe files (setupvse.exe & framepkg.exe) before putting computer in our domain. Sometimes we find out that all the users do not have the latest version. Now we want to make some kind of task which will tell us which computers in our company has older version of Mcafee&Viruscan (including patches) soo we don't do an upgrade to all the computers in our company but only to thoose who have older version? We do not want to upgrade clients who already have the latest version. We are also not sure which task should we choose when we want to do an upgrade of Viruscan&Mcafee versions/patches on this computers. Should we choose Product upgrade task or Product Deployment task. How can I solve a scheduling if a person is using a laptop and is currently not in the office when we deploy task?
I see that Epolicy orchestrator has its own automatic update task for updating new virus databases, but the problem appears when Mcafee creates new versions, program extensions,patches, etc. Is there a way that Epolicy would also do this new versions upgrade automatically? The problem is that I never know when some new version, patch, extension is realesed. I usually find out like that, when we have a problem with Mcafee or Viruscan, then I google it and upgrade versions. If this can not be done, I would be very grateful if Mcafee would notice us every time when there is a new version of Mcafee Agent or Viruscan (including patches & extensions).
Our company has extended/bought a licence of Mcafee for the next year period. The grant number is now different then it was before. Will the license of epolicy orchestrator 4.5 last until next year 2011? I think I have made an installation of newer version (EPO 4.5) some days before we have extended license. How can I check if the license of the current version of EPO on server is ok and will not expired? I would really like to avoid of any license expiration.
With best regards,
