goto your dns server and make sure there is an entry for the old epo server, change the ip on it to the ip of the new epo server. caveat: you must be using the same port for communication on the new epo server. agents find epo server by ip and if that falls they try dns, use dns to point to new epo. This is not officially supported by mcafee.
Digging up an old thread here as I'm also in the same boat as you.
I think this will only work if your deploying a new agent version. If the agent reporting to epo3.6 are on the same version as epo4 then a deployment task won't work. The agent won't be reinstalled as epo sees its the same version.
i'm waiting for MA4 patch 1 to be released so I can deploy to the remaining machines.
Yes its a different version and its been working great! There are a several that haven't worked but at least its a manageable number that I'll have to manually install.
As far as the DNS thing, it will not work for me because ePO4 is using a different communication port.
