Upgrade other McAfee products while upgrading to Endpoint Security 10.7.x using Endpoint Upgrade Assistant

You can use Endpoint Upgrade Assistant to upgrade other McAfee products when you upgrade to Endpoint Security 10.7.x. You can upgrade from version 10.2.x, 10.5.x, or 10.6.x. You can also upgrade from legacy products like VirusScan Enterprise.

Endpoint Upgrade Assistant detects McAfee products in your environment and determines the minimum version needed to remain compatible with Endpoint Security 10.7.x, then lets you upgrade all of them with a single deployment task.

  1. Before the installation:
  2. Upgrade product extensions and installation packages on McAfee ePO.
  3. Update content files on McAfee ePO.
  4. Resolve issues blocking analysis.
  5. Deploy products that Endpoint Upgrade Assistant cannot upgrade.
  6. Deploy product software to endpoints.
  7. After the installation:
    1. If you saved your custom product settings, verify that settings you configured in the previous version work as expected.
    2. Disable the Windows firewall to avoid conflicts with Endpoint Security Firewall rules.
    3. If third-party applications aren't working correctly after you install Endpoint Security Firewall, and you didn't preconfigure custom Firewall rules, temporarily enable Adaptive Mode.
    4. Review the policy settings that are new or changed in Endpoint Security 10.7.x.
