    Upgrading VSE Management Extension




      A question that I  hope someone out there can answer quickly.


      I have installed VSE Patch 7 in evaluation mode and tried to deploy it to a test machine without luck


      "Updates were not applied because the detection scripts were not found in the Current branch: VIRUSCAN8800"


      I think that I need to upgrade the management extension from to


      Would this affect VSE that is currently installed


      I have backed up the VSE policies. Is it ok for me to upgrade to


      I am not exactly sure what the management extension does. Maybe someone could enlighten me

            Hi Morello,


            The management extension is required to manage policies used by the VSE 8.8 Patch 7 package on the endpoint.

            Typically it is good practise to check in the management extension of any product prior to deploying the package to managed systems.


            Can you confirm that you have modified the McAfee Agent > General Policy > Updates tab to get product updates from the Evaluation branch (where your VSE 8.8 Patch 7 package is checked in) prior to running the McAfee Agent - Product Update Client Task to upgrade the VirusScan version?


            Kind regards,

              Hi George


              I went ahead and installed the extension to the latest version and yes I had done all the rest, such as changing the McAfee general policy to point at the evaluation branch.


              All is good now.


              Thanks for your correspondence
