    Engine Version Deployment Query

    sweedychef

      Hi all,

       

      Since updating all my workstations to Agent 5.0.2.132, the Engine Version Deployment query does not pick up the Engine version number for these new agent installs.

      I still have 316 servers on Agent 4.8 and these correctly show in the query.

       

      Anyone else seen this ?

      I will be updating to Agent 5.0.2.188 this evening (in preparation for patch 7) so will see if the issue follows the new updated agent.

          :Bump:

           

          This is still happening with version 5.02.132, 5.02.188 and 5.02.333 Agents.

          Can anyone confirm that they are seeing the same with query "Engine Version Deployment" ?

          For info we are running ePO v5.3 build 188.

           

          Maybe I am missing an extension?


          Thanks for looking

            Many issues with agent 5.x: agent not communicating, or just not running tasks or policy not being up to date.

            Little know fact: the agent is dependent on crypto and power services, they must be up and running and set to automatic (not delayed)

            I rolled back to 4.8 and I'm waiting for agent 5.03

              This whole upgrade path with Agent 5.x is a pain. Have been doing some testing but have yet to fully deploy these 5.x agents. What you guys are finding is making me rethink about deploying 5.0.2.333. We have about 200+ systems using agent 5.0.2.132 due to Windows 10. Had issues with 4.8.0.1938 with Windows 10 and was told by support to use agent 5.x. The majority of our systems, over 1500, are still on Agent 4.8.0.1938. At least VSE 8.8i Patch 7 installs with the 4.8 agent.

               

              I know that McAfee was telling people to upgrade to 5.0.2.333 to close a security vulnerability. What I have read is that you can have Agent 4.8.0.1938 and install Patch 7 this should close this security vulnerability. I hope that info about this vulnerability is correct.

               

              Our biggest issue with Agent 5.x is with Drive Encryption as it won't enforce policies. Have an open case with McAfee with that issue. Back in Nov, was told to wait for Agent 5.0.3 also.

                Thanks for your input,

                 

                I'll assume this will be fixed in a later engine update.

                Its not really an issue, just a cosmetic problem.
