Probably because you have another agent deployment task from the previous 4.6 that was in the current branch. I'm thinking maybe when you checked the new .1938 package into current it also changed your existing agent deployment task to push this new agent out.
By the way, are you DoD? If so friend me on here and send me a PM with your email and I can help you further.
I think you win!
I did delete my old deployement task before checking in the .1938 agent and creating a new task.
BUT I guess what happened is that the systems that ALREADY had locally the old deployment task (which is in fact "all my systems") probably just ran their old task before being instructed to delete it (ASCI probably had not yet happen for them) and they just installed the agent that was CURRENTLY in the Current branch, which was the new .1938 agent. The old task did indeed have "Makes sense?
When I noticed that the deployement was going outside the boundaries I wanted, I moved the agent package into the Evaluation branch. I guess this will stop the bleeding.
Thanks for your help!
BTW, you're asking me if I'm DoD, sorry I don't understand what you mean.
Cool. Well at least that solved it. I always check stuff into the eval or previous branch when testing, just so it doesn't throw off my current deployments.
Nevermind on the DoD thing.. most people running the older 4.6.8 are government organizations
One hour later, the wild deployment has ceased. So moving the package back into the Evaluation branch did stop the bleeding.
Thanks again, and no I'm not with DoD or other government organization, I just haven't got time yet to jump to epo 5 :-)
Just check the package into the master repository into whatever branch you'd like, create a client task to deploy the newly checked in package, and then assign that task at whatever node in the system tree you want it deployed at.
I thank you for your answer but in the master repository i find that the last version of McAfee Agent is 22.214.171.1247. I find also epo Agent Key Updater version 1938 (version i need) but i don't know what to do with this plug-in. should I download it ?
I think you might be confused between the agent and the agent key updater:
MA 4.8 Patch 1 = 126.96.36.1997
MA 4.8 Patch 2 = 188.8.131.520
MA 4.8 Patch 3 = 184.108.40.2068
If you want to deploy out MA 220.127.116.118, you'll need to download the patch 3 package via the software manager or through the mcafee portal and check it into the master repository, then deploy it out.
The agent key updater is not an essential thing you need. Its available to download and put in the master repository so you can create and run a task to update agents to a new master key for communication if you upgrade ePO's or need to change the key for some reason.
I see the difference now thanks to you . The problem now is that i can't find MA 4.8 patch 3 (18.104.22.1688) in software manager ? I wonder if u could tell me where can i download it (link if it's possible)
thank you so much
