VSE 8.8 Patch 2 Deployment

Hello everybody,


Today I am contacting with a very simple question (in my oppinion, but nevertheless I do not know the answer).

We are at the moment running a McAfee ePO 4.6 Server, mainly for these products McAfee Agent 4.6 Patch 2 ( and VSE


We wanted now to deploy the latest VSE 8.8 Patch 2( So I have downloaded the latest Patch with the Software Manager and checked the version in to Evaluation branch.

Now I would like to deploy the patch only to some test machines, where I have applied a Tag. I have done that already in the past. So I have build the following Client Task and Assignement:

ScreenHunter_01 Nov. 20 09.29.gif

ScreenHunter_02 Nov. 20 09.30.gif

I have now read that it would be better (or only possible) to deploy the Patch 2 with an Update task instead of a deployment task. But the weird thing for me here is, I can´t choose the branch there... So how does this work? And what is the recommended way?


Best regards,
