Results

  • The Manual sitelist import option is also available and can be used if you want to do a manual import by selecting an existing SiteList.xml file.
  • You can obtain the SiteList.xml file to use for this process in the following folder on the server where the agents are being transferred to: <ePO_Installation_Directory>\DB\SiteList.xml
  • On a McAfee ePO 4.6 server, you can select only version 4.6 or previous versions as the McAfee ePO version. When you test the connection to the database of the registered server, you see the following warning:

    Database connection successful! Warning Versions mismatch!

    You can safely ignore the warning. TheMcAfee ePO version selected (4.6) does not match the database (5.x) you have tested.
