How do I get McAfee EPO to push out software package along with policies

Posted on 2009-04-21

I have McAfee EPO 4.0 Patch 4 along with Agent 4.0.  I have successfully pushed out my agent to the machines in my organization.  I have installed McAfee 8.7i inside the software repository and included it in the registered extensions.  I am able to create policies and assign policies to govern the antivirus software per group.  Under the organization group I have configured a task to push out the new version of 8.7i and to update the polices associated with 8.7.  This seems to be the problem.  The users in the organization are not receiving the updated software package.  Am i missing something??
