I'm doing a fresh install of EPO4 and moving clients from 3.6.1 to 4. Spoke to Mcafee and they advised not to export the policies from 361 to 4 - there could be some corruption. I found corruption problems when upgrafing groushield from 6 to 7 so am rather going to recreate all policies from scratch.
Are there any Prime documents on this, a best practise ideal?
We'd also like to keep our historical data as well so again a dabase backup restore would do this but have people had issues with restoring 3.6 data to a 4.0 database
As far as I can see we are stuck whicever way we jump
In place upgrade leaves you with detritus from previous installs and existing issues may still be present
New install means rebuilding the policies by hand as well as setting up repositories from scratch
importing from old DB on old server to new DB on new server corrupts the data Regards
