Hey all, I have been helping out with a Mc Afee Epo server for over a year now...
I wanted to get some feed back on when you guys update your agents dat files (when and how often).
Microsoft will soon release a hotfix to implement the check to avoid incompatibility issues between Mc Afee’s product and its latest Windows OS.
This Microsoft hotfix will protect against installation of incompatible Mc Afee product versions; however, this hotfix cannot protect against upgrades to the Windows 10 Anniversary Update from nodes already running an incompatible Mc Afee product version on a previous build of Windows.
Does anybody know whether my current version will still work after the upgrade?
And if not, whether Mc Afee already has a compatible version available?
To prevent this, do not use periods when naming your files, and also remind people that send you attachments not to use periods.If you have a chance to upgrade to the new patch, then proceed with update.The long-awaited Windows 10 Anniversary Update is finally here, but you shouldn’t hurry to install it if you’re using Mc Afee products.I would like to have the agents check in around 3 times a day. The update cycle would be spread out during the morning, afternoon, and evening.We are a medium office with about 56 users, and we are adding the servers to Epo soon as well so just checking what what you guys do on your AV update policies.In other words, you shouldn’t upgrade to the Anniversary Update unless you verify compatibility.
