doubts during the setup installation of ENDPOINT SECURITY .

Hi , as i am new in here .

in fact this few days trying to setup a ENDPOINT SECURITY for our customer but then during the installations , i think i been hit into a problem and i am doubts full to double confirm first before we can proceed into seconds step of our plan .

Firstly , we will setup a WINDOWS SERVER 2003 R2 Edition for SERVER desktop system ( including SQL SERVER stand 2005 version installed ) plus install the ENDPOINT SECURITY MANAGEMENT 3.5 into the server .

so base on the above , our customer are currently using the ENDPOINT SECURITY CLIENT 3.5 previously , and now there are trying to upgrade it to 4.1R version because some of the end user are using either WINDOWS VISTA and as well as WINDOWS 7 .

with this , we would come into doubts that base on the story on above :

1) does we need to do the ENDPOINT SECURITY CLIENT upgrade version from 3.5 and then install version 4.1R without need to install version 4.0 ?

2) other than this , does the ENDPOINT SECURITY CLIENT version 3.5 policies & configuration setting can be migrate to the newer Version such as 4.1R ? if so , can i know something a short note how it was done ?

3) besides that , i was unable to search the manual or documentation of the upgrade from 3.5 to 4.1R , so that we can have a refrences .

any advise from it ?

There is no upgrade path from 3.5 to 4.1 - What you need to do is un-install 3.5 and then so a clean install of 4.1

What you will be able to do is export the policies, via the management console - open each policy and choose Export from the File menu, give the file location and give it a name, it will save two files policy_name.sen and setup.sen

If I remember correctly you will be able to use the existing SQL databases when you upgrade.

You will also need to configure your directory access, and import the policies via the management console.

I would also reccomend upgrading the client machines from 3.5 to 4.1 at the same time.
