What happens to policies during migration?

This version of McAfee MOVE AntiVirus optimizes and consolidates legacy products into an integrated, efficient new platform.

In addition to new and enhanced features that leverage the latest developments in security technology, a new McAfee MOVE AntiVirus Common extension centralizes the shared protection features so that they are easily accessible by all product modules. As a result, some of the policy settings have changed.

The Migration Assistant ensures that the settings in your legacy policies are moved to the correct policies in McAfee MOVE AntiVirus 4.7. Sometimes, they are merged with other McAfee MOVE AntiVirus settings, and in others, new default settings are applied to support updated technologies.

  • New and revised categories reflect new and shared features.
  • New settings represent new functionality.
  • Some settings are removed, moved to a different category or policy, or merged with settings for other features.
  • Settings shared by multiple product components and features are moved to the Options policy under the MOVE AntiVirus Common 4.7 in McAfee ePO.
  • Sometimes, settings are duplicated in multiple policies for functionality that is split across modules.
  • (Automatic migration only) If you enabled Policy per Virtual Machine (PPVM) in 3.6.1, note that all PPVM assignments and policies are merged.
