Hi john_matrix, if you've installed a new ePO server then you'll have to deploy the agent from this server to any computer you want to manage from him.
As it's a new server it's totally independent from the old one so no need to stop services.
Thank your for your answer
I'll try to redeploy McAfee agent from this new server.
Keep you in touch!

Our set-up so far is probably somewhat different from yours, since we're not using any AD yet.
Here's what we did (twice already, for different reasons)
- have one server running, or crawling (as you say yours is dying)
- installed a second server without touching the first one
- copy the Security Keys from old-server to new server if you can (see KB51438)
then what we did was to give new-server the DNS name & IP of old-server.
Most (95%) of our agents didn't see a difference.
If you're using AD I believe you ought to be able to push a new agent on those that do have a problem.
We did this twice, once was in 2008 when upgrading from ePO 3.6 to ePO 4 while switching to a new server and new SQL DB, the second time was last year when upgrading servers and SQL servers from ePO 4 to ePO 4.5 (new hardware, new OS, new ePO).
Hope it helps
