I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

The single biggest problem I see posted is when the SysAdmin is going through an ePO version 'upgrade' and maintaining/reestablishing communication with the local host agents.

In the vast majority of these situations, the problem is resolved by following the basic trouble-shooting guide. On rare occasions there will a problem that is not of the basic variety, but we have some pretty sharp ePO "Pros" who can sort things out pretty quickly.

FWIW - I've been a fan of ePO since the late 90's and I don't think I could list "5" problems/issues I've dealt with in all those years.

Probably the biggest PITA I've had to deal with in all this time is some moron SysAdmin creating duplicate host names and adding them to the network without telling me. ePO doesn't play well with duplicate names.

I try to monitor the McAfee Zone and will update this list if I see anything worth mentioning.

Good question, BTW.
