Do I Need to Install the Privilege Management for Windows and the Privilege Management Policy Editor Together?
For standalone installations, you must install both Privilege Management for Windows and the Privilege Management Policy Editor. We also recommend that Privilege Management for Windows and the Privilege Management Policy Editor be installed together during evaluation, to simplify the evaluation process.
For larger deployments, there is no requirement to install the Privilege Management Policy Editor on endpoints.
What Distribution Mechanisms Do You Support?
Privilege Management for Windows can be deployed using any third party software which supports the deployment of MSI and/or Executable files, such as Microsoft Active Directory, Microsoft SMS/SCCM, and McAfee ePolicy Orchestrator (ePO).
For silent installations and advanced installations (such as CERT_MODE and EPOMODE), the third party deployment software must also support the use of command line options.
What is the Update Priority for Privilege Management GPO Edition?
The update priority for Privilege Management GPO edition is as follows:
- Event Collector
- Reporting Database
- Management Console
Can Different Versions of the Agent Coexist?
- An older version of the agent might be needed for an older OS.
For example, agent version 22.5 does not support Windows 7, so an earlier version is required.
- A company might create a pilot group to run a newer version for agent testing while the rest of the estate runs the older version.
We always retain backwards compatibility for the policies when adding new features. This allows you to configure and use new features in your policies and use them with newer agents. On any older agents in your estate the new features will be ignored and will not affect the function of the agents.
