Migration to MVISION ePO Quick Start

The MVISION ePO Migration extension allows you to migrate from your current on-premises McAfee ePO server to MVISION ePO.

Before you begin

Moving from McAfee ePO on-premises to MVISION ePO requires you to complete a few tasks first.

  • Make sure you have access to your current McAfee ePO server.
  • Install the MVISION ePO Migration extension on your current McAfee ePO server.
  • Create an account on MVISION ePO.

Run the migration tool on your McAfee ePO server

To begin, log on to your McAfee ePO server. Then, select the menu and click MVISION ePO Migration.

Configure your new MVISION ePO Account

You're now ready to get started. The first step is to set up the connection between your on-premises server and MVISION ePO by configuring your MVISION ePO account.

Enter your credentials and select the tenant from the drop-down list. Click Link to MVISION ePO Account.

Clone the current McAfee ePO server

Next, the system verifies your current products to determine which configuration settings are compatible with MVISION ePO. It then creates a clone of those settings and sends the data to MVISION ePO.

Review the information here and click Clone to MVISION ePO.

Select a pilot group to migrate first

Now you can begin choosing the systems that you want to migrate from your McAfee ePO System Tree.

To help this process go smoothly, McAfee recommends selecting just a few systems or a pilot group to migrate first. Using a pilot group allows you to identify and remedy any issues that might come up before migrating the rest of your systems.

Select the systems for your pilot group and click Migrate.

Migrate the pilot group

After the migration process begins, you can track your progress on the left side of the migration page.

Migrate your remaining systems

After you have migrated the pilot group, log on to MVISION ePO and verify your systems and settings. You're now ready to migrate your remaining systems.

Note: You might want to delete the pilot group before completing the full migration. If so, you can enable and schedule the Delete Migrated Systems task in MVISION ePO before continuing.
During system migration, the MVISION ePO Migration tool identifies and migrates just the changes to tags, policies, tasks, and assignments. This allows you to complete the migration process quickly and easily.

Next steps

MVISION ePO is now managing your systems. Systems are typically ready after the next agent-server communication.

You can view information about your migrated systems using the following queries which are included with the MVISION ePO migration extension:
