Ansible fails to install McAfee Endpoint Security Platform v10.7.0.3132.1

Hi,

I am having issues installing McAfee Endpoint Security Platform using Ansible.  Everytime it fails with a return code of 1601.  Installing manually on server works fine.  I have tested using command line / powershell manually and works fine.  Ansible also using powershell / command line and made no difference.

Anyone else come across this ?  

Cheers SM

Hi @SM 

Thank you for posting in community forum. As you mentioned, installing ENS manually works without issues, it is clear that the problem is either with the tool or the method used for deployment through Ansible. Other important thing to note is that other deployment methods can sometimes invoke the installer in a weird way which results in symptoms similar to those of missing root certs.

Since the only supported deployment method from McAfee is via ePO, we would recommend to use this method for deployment.

 

Kind Regards,

I applied the certificates by running the batch file manually on the server and this made no difference at all to Ansible.  It still failed to install ENS.

Even tried below suggestion and again nothing works.
