McAfee ePO includes a Software Manager which makes it efficient to check-in packages and extensions. Where possible, we will leverage this built-in tool. To get into the software manager, go to the ePO Menu and click on ‘Software Manager’ under the Software section.
Software components will appear under the 'Software Not Checked In' section of the Software Manager initially. Once you check in the first software component for a given product, subsequent packages or extensions will be available to check in under 'Checked In Software'.
You may choose to base your Dynamic Endpoint Security of one of two different foundation elements: VirusScan Enterprise 8.8 (VSE), or McAfee Endpoint Security 10.x (ENS). We will now add the necessary software to bring either VirusScan Enterprise 8.8 or McAfee Endpoint Security 10.1 into McAfee ePO based on your environment. Note that you will need to install only one set of extensions and packages. If you choose to begin with ENS, please skip the section on "VirusScan Enterprise" and proceed immediately to "Endpoint Security 10.1".
The available components in the Software Manager will be based on the ePO key associated with your grant number. Inside Software Manager, scroll down under "Software Not Checked In" until you see "VirusScan Enterprise 8.8". Check-in the following components for VirusScan Enterprise 8.8 by clicking ‘Check-In’ under actions on each of the following from within the Software Manager:
Management Extension (126.96.36.1998)
Reports Extension (188.8.131.522)
Install – Windows (Patch 7) Client Installation Package (184.108.40.2068)
NOTE: The initial component check-in will appear under 'Software Not Checked In'. All others will appear under 'Checked In Software'.
Make sure to check 'I accept the terms in the license agreement' and then click OK.
Wait for the component to complete the check-in and then repeat the above steps for the remaining components. Then continue below in the section labeled "Verifying Packages are Checked In".
