    Upgrade Path from 4.5 (753) for Encryption

    epo_user2012

      Hey guys,

       

      In the production environement I have ePO 4.5 (753) installed. We are looking to deploy Endpoint Encryption (EE) sometime in the near future. One of the prerequests for EE, ePO needs to be 4.5 Patch 4 Hotfix 1

      (1093). Looking at the KB59938 https://kc.mcafee.com/corporate/index?page=content&id=KB59938 there are 2 ways i can progress - patching 4.5 to the 4 Hotfix 1, or upgrading to 4.6.

       

      1. I will take a guess that upgrading to 4.6 is the best way - can someone confirm? Is it reasonably simple?
      2. Any recommended version for 4.6?
      3. If for some reason we wanted to stay on 4.5 - would i have to install each patch one at a time until Patch 4 Hotfix 1 (or Patch 5)?

       

      Thanks for any input.

          Hi epo_user2012, if you want to upgrade to ePO 4.6 then you'll first need to go through ePO 4.5 patch 3, then to ePO 4.6 (latest patch).

           

          I think it would be a good idea for you to upgrade to ePO 4.6 patch 2 as it's a simple task.

           

          If you want to stay at ePO 4.5 then I suppose you'll only need to apply its latest patch

            In the patch readme.html file, it states you can upgrade from from 4.5 base to 4.5 patch 5:
