Thank you for using McAfee® Change Control® software version 6.0.0. This document contains important information about this release. We strongly recommend that you read the entire document.
Here is a list of new and updated features included with this release of the product.
|Support for content change tracking #||
Using Change Control, you can track content and attribute changes for a monitored file. If you enable content change tracking for a file, any attribute or content change to the file creates a new file version at McAfee ePO. For a file for which you are tracking content changes, you can:
|Support for one-click exclusion||In previous releases, creating Advanced
exclusion filters (AEF) rules was relatively difficult and error prone. You
were required to manually enter detailed information to create an AEF rule.
Starting with this release, we have simplified the creation of AEF rules. You can directly create AEF rules from the Events page. Select the events to ignore in future and create new or update existing rule groups. You do not need to manually enter details because rules are auto-populated based on the selected events. You only need to review the rules generated by the wizard.
|Support for BMC Remedy 7.5 and 7.6||You can now integrate the McAfee Change Control product with BMC® Remedy® Action Request System® versions 7.5 and 7.6. For detailed instructions, refer to the McAfee Change Reconciliation and Ticket-based Enforcement Guide.|
|Improvement of change reconciliation feature||The Change Reconciliation feature helps you create a comprehensive list of the changes carried out on all monitored systems and correlate events with change tickets that a change management system (CMS) generates. You do not need Analytics Server to use change reconciliation feature. For detailed instructions, refer to the McAfee Change Reconciliation and Ticket-based Enforcement Guide.|
|Support for ticket-based enforcement||Using ticket-based enforcement, you can ensure seamless system updates without any manual intervention. For detailed instructions, refer to the McAfee Change Reconciliation and Ticket-based Enforcement Guide.|
|Note: The features that are highlighted with # are not available on the Windows NT and Windows 2000 platforms. This is because in the 6.0.0 release we are shipping the 5.1.2-8144 build for the Solidcore client for these two platforms.|
