    Domain consolidation - Three McAfee ePO's to One - Clients

    ois_sec

      Good Morning,

       

      As the tittle suggests. We have 3 McAfee ePO's. All policies and exclusions are configured 97% the same.

       

      The three McAfee ePO's are configured in the following manner:

       

      A) Version 5.1.1 Build 357 (Workstations)

       

      B) Version 5.1.1 Build 357 (Servers)

       

      C) Version 4.6.6 Build 176 (Mix)

       

       

      My question is in regards to letter C and A. ePO B is an adventure for another day.

       

      Lets assume that I disable policy enforcement on ePO C and push that to all the clients (workstations and servers). Would I then be able to use ePO A and do a force overwrite of the new agents on those clients? If so, is a reboot required? Reason I ask is that there are production servers that I would not like to interrupt. If required I can schedule a reboot for a weekend.

       

      Any potential problems that I may experience?

      Any suggestions?

       

      At the moment the only way I have tested this is by disabling policy enforcement on a workstation, manually running the command to force uninstall on the workstation, rebooting, and installing the framework for the new ePO.

       

      Appreciate the assistance and feedback.
