Old Canned Queries Are Not Removed After Upgrade
After you upgrade the McAfee VirusScan Enterprise module from a previous version, the old canned queries remain in the McAfee AntiVirus folder in the Control Center. The canned queries in this folder may appear to function properly, but they may return incorrect results and should not be used. (DOC272601)
Old Computer Groups Are Not Removed After Upgrade
After you upgrade the McAfee VirusScan Enterprise module from a previous version, the old computer groups remain and the Security Manager agents continue to populate them. (ENG277199)
Removal of Monitoring Guides
Since monitoring information for updated Security Manager modules is now available in the module release notes, monitoring guides have been discontinued. However, a known issue exists where Security Manager cannot simply remove old monitoring guides when installing updated modules. To reduce the risk of users referencing outdated monitoring guides, Security Manager now replaces the old monitoring guide in the default documentation folder with a blank monitoring guide. Monitoring guides are installed by default in the \Program Files\NetIQ Security Manager\OnePoint\Documentation\Monitoring Guides folder on the central computer, but may have been moved or copied to a different location in your environment. After installing an updated module, you should manually delete any outdated monitoring guides that were copied or moved to other folders.
Removal of Old Release Notes
After you upgrade the McAfee VirusScan Enterprise module from a previous version, the old module release notes are not deleted from the \Program Files\NetIQ Security Manager\OnePoint\Documentation\Module Release Notes folder. The release notes files were renamed for this module update, and Security Manager cannot remove old release notes files when installing updated modules. (ENG277204)
