I'm new to McAfee ePolicy Orchestrator.  Currently running v5.0.1.  I have the System Tree populated with groups that have various workstations in those groups.  I've been tasked to update the Engine that the workstations use.  However, I need to push the update to a select Group of computers, then if no issues, apply to everyone but a third group.  The third group would go last if all goes well.  The company has experienced issue just pushing updates in the past where things were broken.  Then if all that is golden, pushing out additional updates and then Intrusion Protection module in the same manner.  I am at a loss on how to do this.  I've read the manual but am still confused on how to do this.  From what I've read it's everyone or no one.

it will be best to leverage the active directory (or similar centralised controller) structure of the user machine grouping and have EPO follow that strictly in pushing out to the different groups. most of the time the machine inventory will not be accurate from EPO as not the administrator (if there are couple of them) to sync it manually with the main administration done in AD. of course, it is good to do a discovery regularly from EPO queries to make sure machine is still of existence too.

Here is a best practice paper which you want to start off checking out some section to achieve the use case and delve further to the user/admin guide on actual config....Check out the section
- (under System Tree) "Synchronize with Active Directory"  and "Use Active Directory synchronization "
- (Under Client tasks and Server tasks) "Deploy products" and "Updating products"
