McAfee Solidcore 3.7

Summary

There have been two major versions of Solidcore (v5.0 and v5.1) since Solidcore 3.7, therefore the following variants of Solidcore 3.7 will not be supported beyond September 30th, 2011:
  • Application Control 3.7 and earlier
  • Change Control 3.7 and earlier
  • Integrity Monitor for Servers 3.7 and earlier
  • Integrity Monitor for Databases 3.7 and earlier
  • Integrity Monitor for Network Devices 3.7 and earlier
  • Change Reconciliation 3.7 and earlier
  • POS Check & Control (all versions)
Between now and September 30th, 2011, only limited support will be provided (in other words, only bugfixes will be provided but no FMRs/PERs will be added).

Additionally, the following variant of Solidcore 3.7 will not be supported beyond April 1st, 2012:
  • PCI Pro (all versions)

Solidcore 3.7 components
Solidcore 3.7 had three components which had their own specific versions:
  • Analytics Server 3.7
  • System Controller 2.7
  • Solidifier 4.9
NOTE: The End of Life (EOL) applies to all the versions indicated above. For certain uncommon situations, the Analytics Server and the System Controller are still required for a few more months (situations outlined in section below).

Platforms reaching EOL
The following platforms will not be supported beyond September 30th, 2011:
  • HPUX 11.00 
  • AIX 5.2
  • AS400 v5/v6
Migration Procedure
Solidcore 3.7 used a management console called the Analytics Server, whereas Solidcore 5.x uses a McAfee management console called ePolicy Orchestrator (ePO). Migrating the data and configuration from 3.7 to 5.x is not straightforward because the architecture is completely different. However, a Migration Guide (PD22884) is available that provides a high-level overview of the steps required to transfer the data and the configuration. Professional Services will be able to alleviate some of the inconvenience related to the migration process.

NOTE: McAfee is fully aware of the inconvenience this can cause to our customers and our support team is committed to help as much as possible.
