Upgrade considerations

When you upgrade the software:
Existing configurations — The existing configurations are migrated.
Managed environments — You must check in both McAfee Security for Lotus Domino (Windows) 7.5.3 policy and task extensions separately to the McAfee ePO server.
File Filter Categories — If your previous version has File Filter Categories rules, when you upgrade, some of these rules are either migrated or removed. This is because in McAfee Content Scanning Engine 4.8.0, certain File Filter Categories are merged as primary and secondary file format and some are made obsolete. For more information, see McAfee KnowledgeBase article KB84922. An HTML report is generated for any File Filter Categories changes in your configuration.

For McAfee ePO policy upgrade — You can find the HTML report in this location:

<ePO Upgrade tool path>/bin/FilefilterUpgradeReport_ddmmyyyyhhmmss.html.
