Have you tried the following:
1 Log into the ePO console.
2 From the Menu, select Server Settings.
3 Scroll down and click on Server Information.
4 Java version should read 1.8.0_92.
I have the same question. I'm wanting to apply hotfix HF1167014, yet when I look at the verification steps in the release notes https://kc.mcafee.com/resources/sites/MCAFEE/content/live/PRODUCT_DOCUMENTATION/ 26000/PD26877/en_US/ReleaseNotes_epo513_… it tells me to look for the presence of 4 files in [ePO Installation Folder]\Server\extensions\installed\ePOCore\18.104.22.168\webapp\WEB-INF\lib yet before I apply the patch two of the four files are already there. It would have been nice if the verification procedures included file versions and or timestamps.
Thanks for the response. HF1133331 was only an example. Yes, while HF1133331 addresses Java vulns and updates Java, other Hotfixes update other aspects of ePO that you cannot see in the Server Settings menu.
Wish there were a place in the Server Settings menu that you said something like HF version, then listed out the HF version number.
Exactly. The newest HF1179709 asks you to run the installer, then check these files. The files already exist, with modified dates way in the past.
Well, the files already exist there, true. However after applying the patch, what happens is that the older versions get backed up with .BAK extension in the same folder. When ePO services are restarted, they will use the newly created files instead. I suppose they have different ways of verifying different types of hotfixes.
