    HIPS 6.1 on epo 4.0

      Hello All.


      I have question.  Our company has recently rebuilt a epo 4.0 server and migrated all the clients off epo 3.6 to the 4.0 server. ( I know we are in the past)  In our migration we had also moved to HIPS to 7.0. on epo 4.0.


      Is there a way I could check a HIPS 6.1 package into the new ePO 4.0 server so that we could have deployment tasks to uninstall HIPS 6.1 and push out 7.0  as well? 


      I had set a deployment task to install hips 7.0, however some clients are not upgrading to 7.0.


      I know HIPS 6.1 is EOL . Do you have any recommendation or best practice on how to migrate my clients to 7.0


      Thank you in advance.

          Not sure whether this belongs in our HIPs area or our ePO area, but HIPs won out.


          Hopefully an expert can help you soon.

            Yes, you can check in the HIPS 6.1 package/extension into ePO 4.0, however as you mentioned, the product is EOL and no longer available.


            The first thing I would do is try a local uninstall of HIPS 6.1 on the system via Add/Remove Programs (disable Host IPS module first, as usual).  If a local uninstall fails to uninstall the software, then a push of HIPS 7.0 install or a HIPS 6.1 uninstall deployment task is not going to work.  The software might be in a corrupted state, whereas you will have to manually uninstall HIPS 6.1 off the system, reboot it, and push HIPS 7.0 to it.
