    Direct Upgrade to ePO 5.3 from ePO 4.6.6

    elcore

      Hello Everyone,

       

      I am looking for some advise on upgrading our current ePO 4.6.6 to ePO 5.3.

       

      Currently

      1. ePO 4.6.6
      2. McAfee Agent 4.6
      3. Windows 2008 R2 x64
      4. SQL 2008 R2 (on ePO server)
      5. Clients 2500+

      NEW EPO:

      1. Windows 2012 R2
      2. ePO version 5.3
      3. MS SQL 2012 Std
      4. Clients 2500+

       

      I am aware about that there is no direct upgrade path from ePO 4.6.6 to ePO 5.3 (read relasenotes), however was just wondering if following could be done:

       

      • Install new server with Windows 2012 R2 Std.
      • Install SQL 2012
      • Install McAfee ePO 5.3.0
      • Export all various components from current ePO 4.6.6 server to new ePO 5.3.0
      • Force Unistall the McAfee agent and install new one from the new server

       

      Could anyone please guide me if above is possible and what are possible caveats. Thanks all in advance
