        • 1. No SCM, HIPS 6.01 support
          Anyone else disappointed that SCM 4.22 and HIPS 6.01 are not in the supported products list (https://knowledge.mcafee.com/SupportSite/dynamickc.do?sliceId=SAL_Public&command =show&forward=nonthreadedKC&externalId=613759"]613759)?

            AFAIK Hips 6.0.x will be supported within the next 90 days.

              > -- The ePolicy Orchestrator software now includes a native query and report
              system. Included with this release are default queries and the Query Builder
              wizard, which allows you to easily create and edit queries. Unlike reports in
              previous versions, results are actionable. For example, you can run a query on
              systems whose agents haven't communicated with the server in a certain amount of
              time, then send an agent wake up call to those systems. Additionally, queries can
              be run on a schedule.

              queries based on any of the rolled-up data result types of the querying system.

              properties by using criteria-based tags and parallel sorting criteria.
              Additionally, you can create and run queries on systems based on the tags applied
              to them.

              • 4. RE: No SCM, HIPS 6.01 support




                Very disappointed...SCM 4.5 too!....how can i migrate totally to the new release with these limitation?
                • 5. RE: No SCM, HIPS 6.01 support
                  you'll just have to wait...
                  just like all the people that wanted to have Rogue System Detection in ePO4.0
                  latest I've heard is Q1 2008 for that

                  I certainly hope it's sooner then that
                  • 7. RE: No SCM, HIPS 6.01 support
                    This new v4 interface is going to take a bit of getting used to. happy

                      MadJim,

                      You are correct that the new interface will take sometime to get used too. Also, the way that you do queries is a whole lot different. We won't go to the new version until sometime next year. I usually prefer to wait for the first patch before moving to any new software versions. In my opinion, it is better to wait for the bugs to be fixed.

                      I do plan on install the released version on a test server in the next month or so. This will allow me to learn the product and get familiar with it.
                      • 9. RE: No SCM, HIPS 6.01 support
                        I'm certainly not moving to it yet, but I set my test server up this morning. I keep right-clicking things out of habit. ;)

                        I'm currently wondering why VSE850 is deploying to the test machines when I haven't set up a deployment task yet. Also, the reports seem to be blissfully unaware of machines that don't have an agent. It'll all become clear in time, no doubt.
