Hello Experts,

I’m trying to understand the McAfee EPO migration process from versions 4.6.4 build202 to 5.1.


•      Windows 2003 32bit STD
•      EPO application version 4.6.4 build 202
•      Virus scan 8.8
•      Agent 4.6
•      HIPS 8
•      Rogue system detection 4.7
•      DLP 9
•      Site-advisor 3.5
Install a new 64bit windows 2008 server with EPO 5.1 and copy the SQL EPO database from the source server. Then run the export utility/compatibility check on the source server and import the file into the new 64bit server????

ePO 5.1 now includes a utility called UpgradeCompatibility.exe that will help convert from 32 bit to 64 bit ePO servers.  Check the ePO installation guide as it has information on upgrades as well:

This utility is specifically designed to copy the McAfee ePO version 4.X configuration from 32-bit or unsupported hardware to 64-bit supported hardware.

The UpgradeCompatibility utility worked for our Test ePO server. It allowed this server to migrate from Windows 2003 32 bit running ePO 4.6.7 to Windows 2008 R2 64 bit running ePO 5.1.0. Our whole process took about 3 hours. The production server is going to be migrated using this tool next week. Thanks McAfee in providing this valuable tool.
