I had the same. I could not figure out where the installer got that but simply renaming the database name to what the installer wanted did the trick. Renamed it back afterwards though.
thanks for this Herbie,
much appreciated, I'll give it a go report back!
I did the same last night and it failed, the install logs showed the proper db name being retrieved from db.properties but subsequently being changed by the setup. Consequently, I raised an SR with platinum and they advised me after a fair bit of looking around that they sneaked that "feature" in so that the db name used is reverted back to ePO4_<servername>. Based on that report, we've decided to revert back to that naming convention. The install went without a hitch for the patch and the security hotfix for apache.
<Venting> this was sneaked in without anything in the release notes, with any error message properly advising us and with KBs still telling us how to change the db name </venting>
Thanks for the information. unfortunately none of the above was able to fully restore my installation.
Renaming the server to accomodate the DB was out of the question. I finally uninstalled and reinstalled from scratch
restoring my files and DB (after changing it's name), my agents are able to communicate and get updates from the server
however I am unable to connect to the epo portal through any browser.
Any ideas why this would be? I simply get a "http 500 page cannot be found" after it quickly goes through the mcafee logo;
from the server h**ps://localhost:8443 or from any other station.
I searched hi and low but no go, no info that I found helpful.
Thanks again for your feedback Gents, looking forward to hearing your ideas on this one
Hello to all,
Just an update, since all potential solutions failed to get our epo system back up and running
as of this morning I uninstalled epo 4.6.1, reinstalled 4.6, restored my backups (As per KB66616) and got 4.6 to function correctly...
I then upgraded to 4.6.1 And all issues seem to be resolved for the time being and we're running 4.6.1
thanks again to all
