    Want to remove the VSE from ePO


      Hi All,


      I could see many machines are not getting the DAT getting updates even after multiple DAT update task. I presume the VSE on the machine got corrupted.


      However I would like to reinstall VSE on those machines. In my environment of 10000+, all machines are not running with the same versions of VSE(ie one machine in 8.7 and another with the latest 8.8 patch 8).


      I would like to know if there is a single command that could be pushed from the ePO which is capable of removing the VSE irrespective the versions installed on the machine. As I could see the version needs to be mentioned while running a 'Run client task' for the removal of VSE. We only have latest VSE checked-in in our ePO which makes the removal task from the ePO not successful for the machines running with the previous versions of VSE.

          Good Day Sree123


          What version of agent are you using ?


          DAT update failure could also be a corrupt agent .


          Recommendation : log onto a machine where there is a dat update failure . Access the agent monitor , do a collect and sent , update etc , and do a manual update . Chances are there is an issue with the agent communicating with the epo .

          Apologies updater component of the agent.

            I'm afraid I don't know how to do this in one task, but I have been advised by McAfee support that if you set up a task to remove a newer version of VSE, it should remove all older versions of VSE too.  It certainly worked when I tested it out here.

              Please call to support and ask about VSERemoval tool (now it's called MFERemoval) - it's generated once per quarter.

              Using this tolol you will be able to remove all entries connected with VSE,
