Preparing to migrate

To streamline the migration process and minimize conflicts or duplication in migrated settings, perform these tasks before you migrate.

  1. Install the McAfee MOVE AntiVirus Migration Assistant — The Migration Assistant is a self-contained McAfee ePO extension that you need to install on the McAfee ePO server.
  2. Review and revise objects you plan to migrate — Review legacy settings and assignments. Consolidate them where possible. Remove duplicates and unused objects.
  3. Notify the users not to make changes to the Policy Catalog and Client Task Catalog during migration — If objects change while you're migrating them, the migrated objects don't reflect those changes.
  4. Locate unassigned policies and client tasks for migration — (Automatic migration only) During automatic migration, only policies and client tasks that are assigned to at least one group or managed system are migrated. Use manual migration to migrate unassigned policies or client tasks.
