    Staged Software Upgrade with BSA

    Mark Casey

      So, I have an interesting problem. McAfee just released their latest patch for VirusScan Enterprise 8.8. Direct upgrading from previous versions is only compatible with Patch 2 and later.


      So my logic would look like this.


      If VSE doesn't exist, install the full install which includes Patch 4

      If VSE exists and the version is Patch 2 or greater, run the Patch 4 upgrade

      If VSE exists and the version is less then Patch 2, run the Patch 2 upgrade, THEN run the Patch 4 upgrade.


      My problem is, I don't know of a way to wait after the patch 2 upgrade and then check compliance again to turn around and install Patch 4.


      Is this something that is even possible, or should I just run the batch job twice?
