MC Afee ePO on Composer/Config Server?


has anyone experience with installing MCAfee ePO on a Composer/Config Server (Melody)? In the manual it's written that a dedicated server has to be used - but unfortunately we don't have a non-800xA server in this system.

800xA Version is 6.0/1

We haven't tried as such but Mcafee ePO can be installed 800xA nodes but better always consider non 800xA node like Melody Composer or any other enginnering node

If you have Melody Config Server cum Composer then you can select Melody Config Server where the functionality wise load will be very minimal

We have a combined Config/Composer Server. As far as I understood - the Config - Server is also an 800xA Server and therefore not suited for MCAfee installation...

Yes always give first preference to Non 800xA Nodes like ECS, Smart Clients, Domain Controllers or Engineering Clients e.g. Composer
Other wise still you van go ahead with 800xA nodes where system load is minimal e.g. Melody Config Server
