Migration workflow

Reinstall the appliance using the latest version of McAfee DLP Monitor appliance. Re-create your configuration settings, rules, policies, and incident and case management settings using the features in McAfee ePO.

Note: McAfee DLP Monitor features are not available in McAfee DLP 10.x. If you use McAfee DLP Monitor in McAfee Network DLP 9.3.x and want to upgrade, you must install McAfee DLP Monitor 11.x or later rather than McAfee DLP 10.x.

For information about setting up the hardware, see the McAfee Data Loss Prevention Monitor Hardware Guide. For more information about installation the software, see the McAfee Data Loss Prevention Monitor Installation Guide.

Based on the hardware and software resources you have, you can migrate to the latest version of McAfee DLP Monitor appliance.

Using unified incident and case management or McAfee DLP Manager

Complete the steps in the workflow diagram if:

  • Your existing incidents and cases are already available in McAfee ePO.
  • You use McAfee DLP Manager to manage incidents and cases.

    Incidents and cases in McAfee DLP Manager cannot be migrated to McAfee DLP.

Tip: McAfee Network DLP 9.3.x customers and McAfee DLP Endpoint 9.4 customers who choose to retain their McAfee DLP Manager box can keep it available until the incidents and cases are no longer needed, or until McAfee Network DLP 9.3.4 is no longer supported.
