We have ePO, but use it to configure and track 300+ clients. I don't know much about the mirror server you mentioned.
If your only installing VSE 8.8 on 4 servers it might just be best to stick with a manual install. McAfee provides an Installation Designer that makes an EXE (maybe it's an MSI, I forget) that standardizes your VSE installs. Also, I'm fairly certain you can centralize alerts so that you won't have to constantly monitor all 4 servers.
Hope that helps
