    HIPS to HIPS are failing


      I have about 2300 machines on HIPS and out of those I can see in ePO that ~20 machines did not upgrade to HIPS as they should have. Sometimes I am left stuck with HIPS 7 being partially removed and then I have to remove HIPS 7 manually then install 8. Some of the errors I am getting  in the  McAfeeHip8_Install_8.0.0.1919.log include the "MainEngineThread is returning 1603" or I see a "generic Script" error within the McAfee agent. Has anyone ran into this before? If so how did you go about resolving it? I have attached the HIPS 8 installation log,


      Thanks in advance.

          Please open a Service Request (with MER tool results) to investigate this further.  It looks like the HIPS 7.0 NDIS removal failed for some reason.
