Solidcore packaged in a Linux AMI image

I want to give our Cloud infrastructure packages to add to an image when they update their next builds. 

We did a POC of this a couple years ago but there have been several updates since then. Basically we're going to have them install the agent (clear the GUID), ENSL and Solidcore to utilize FIM. Once the images come online the agents will check into ePO, get policies, have the task run to enable SC, etc.

My question is whether or not I need to use the standalone license in this process or if it's enough to just install the client and once the system checks into ePO it will pull the license information?

Thanks,

Jim

Re: Solidcore packaged in a Linux AMI image

Hi @Jmac24 ,

Thank you for your post. When SolidCore is installed, it doesn't pull license from ePO unless there's a task to enable a feature.

If there's a task in place to enable Application Control/Change Control/Integrity Control, the license should be automatically pushed.

Please test on few systems and confirm if it works.

Thanks

Ok, so for the goal of having it installed but sitting dormant until we enable it via ePO task will be fine if we simply install it and make sure there's no task that will automatically run once we have the agent installed. I'll be checking it out tomorrow.

Re: Solidcore packaged in a Linux AMI image

Follow up question. I don't have a system to test this on so I have to provide instructions for our Linux dev team to test. If I am installing solidcore into a Linux image to be deployed as a gold image for new instances that get spun up, can I install without the McAfee agent? 

The plan would be to install ENSTP, Solidcore and then the Agent last, clear the agent GUID and "seal" the image for deployment. In some other cases we'd just provide the packages and have the endpoint products install via script as the system comes online.
