ENS General Options Policy : MAC

Does the  ENS General Options policy enforce the password protected uninstall option on MACs?  I am able to move the APP into the trashcan for application removal despite having the password protect uninstall option selected.  Please advise...

Re: ENS General Options Policy : MAC

Hi @User38911914,

Good day to you!

Yes, the password protection option for the ENS uninstallation is available for MAC.

Can you please confirm if moving the app to the trash can triggers the uninstallation of the product?

Please try to run the command below and check if the uninstallation proceeds without prompting for a password.

sudo /usr/local/McAfee/uninstall EPM



Re: ENS General Options Policy : MAC

  • Moving the app to the trash can does trigger the uninstallation and it was successful without a password prompt from ENS.
  • Running the “sudo” command fully removed FW and TP.
