    Compatiblity between Agent 5.0.2.333 and VSE

    eduardo0407

      Hello, I would like to ask about the compatibility (or lack of) between McAfee Agent 5.0.2.333 and VSE 8.8 patch 6 (not the hotfix, but the 1445).

       

      A have a machine where VSE 8.8.0.1445 was installed along with Agent 5.0.2.132 and it was all working fine. The agent was updated to 5.0.2.333 and everything was still normal, with DAT and Engine Updates, as well as policies and tasks.

       

      Then, I observed that problems occur when McAfee Agent 5.0.2.333 is installed prior to VSE (e.g., when a new workstation enters the network, is unmanaged by ePO, and the agent is deployed first so that later the VSE can be installed). What I observed was that DAT and Engines are still updated, but any change in VSE policies is not displayed or enforced on those workstations. Is this because of lack of compatibility between those two versions? If so, was is the best way to solve this? Deploying another Agent version and forcing the installation over the existing version?

       

      Thanks in advance.
