VSE migrations versus branch



I was evaluating VSE88 with MA453. Deployed like 20 out 400 systems from the EVAL branch.

Now I am wondering about how to go to completely deploy to whole infrastructure.


Should I finalise the whole deployement (400 systems) from the EVAL branch and once that is done flip the MA update policy to CURRENT?


Would that be a good route to go?




EPO 4.5.6 built 137 / W2K8 R2 x64

Current Branch:
VirusScan Enterprise 8.7 patch 4 & patch 5
McAfee Agent 4.5.1499 (sp1)

Eval Branch:
VirusScan Enterprise 8.7 patch 5
McAfee Agent 4.5.1852 (sp3)
VirusScan Enterprise 8.8 patch 2 & 3

    Just check VSE 8.8 into the Current branch. Unless there's an actual deployment task it won't 'accidentally' upgrade from 8.7 to 8.8. Plus 8.8 has been out a long time. If it were my system I'd just upgrade everyone. You can easily do several hundred automatically in a single afternoon.
