ProTip for ePO: error code 5 (Access is Denied) (replication to SuperAgent Distributed Repository fails when an Agent Handler assignment rule excludes the ePO server from the site list)

Version 1

    When running a replication for a SuperAgent, you might come across an error showing:

    error code 5 (Access is Denied)

    This KB could be useful in resolving the issue by going to the General McAfee Agent policy and disabling “Accept Connections only from the ePO server”.

    This means an Agent Handler assignment rule was added that excludes the ePO server from the site list. When the ePO server tries to contact the agent to perform replication, the agent cannot tell if it is the ePO server because it is not listed in the site list.
