Hi jellekamma the 4.6.0 build 1029 is the RTW version (ePO 4.6.0 without patches) so you first need to install, at least, patch 4.
This patch won't be shown as available update under the software manager as it has to be installed locally on the server and not part of an ePO update task
It's probably worth updating to ePO 4.6.6 (released yesterday) before upgrading.
is there any upgrade guide or Steps given by McAfee to come on ePO 5.0 from 4.6 or 4.5 with required patches?
I am also looking for a guide or KB that tells me whether I am required to follow an upgrade path on ePO 4.6.x to get to 5.0, or will it allow you to skip over 4.6.6 and go to 5.0. I am also looking for a listing of the differences between the two versions and if it requires any DB upgrades or changes.
If anyone has any links to share, I would appreciate it immensely. I have searched thru 18 different links to articles and KBs so far.
If you've not already seen it, I would strongly recommend taking a look at the ePO 5 Install Guide, which is in the Documents section of the download site, and also in the knowledgebase here: PD24349
The bit you're probably interested in is the Upgrading ePO section, which states you must be on 4.5 Patch 6 or later, or 4.6 Patch 4 or later.
Install the Patch and try again!
