    EPO 4.5 with McAfee Agent 4.5

    placks

      Hi All

       

      Im running McAfee ePO 4.5 with MA 4.5 and need to resolve the issue outlined in SB10043, https://kc.mcafee.com/corporate/index?page=content&id=SB10043

       

      Is my only option to update the McAfee Agent to either 4.6 or 4.8 and if so will these work OK with ePO 4.5?

       

      Thanks

          Hi placks, what you need to do is upgrade the McAfee Agent extension to the latest 4.8 version or the 4.6 patch 3 with hotfix.

           

          You should also be advised that ePO 4.5 is only supported until december this year so you'll have to upgrade it to 4.6 or 5.0 and it would also be recommended to upgrade also McAfee Agent.

            Hi Laszlo

             

            Thanks for clarifying and the info about support

             

            Im pretty new to ePO

             

            Apologies if this is a stupid question, does updating the MA extension in ePO mean that the agent on all clients will need updating too?

             

            Thanks

              Hi Placks,

               

              Agent extensions is for EPO purpose, and this helps to add the product under the policy catalog, to push the policies to the client machines.

               

              SO, No need to update agent on client machines for agent extensions.

               

              Note: Please install the agent 4.6 p3 hotfix extensions to overcome the vulnerability, and don't install the 4.8 extensions with epo 4.5,

              Since I remember there is some issues with EPO 4.5 and agent 4.8 extensions ( which is incompatible issues found).

               

               

               

              Regards,

              RGC
