ENS for mac 10.6.2 policies not applying



Not sure if anyone has seen this behavior yet, but I'm evaluating the latest ENS for mac 10.6.2 with the firewall, web control, TP & ATP options & after a clean install on OS X 10.14.5, the firewall & web control policies don't take effect.  The other policies do take effect however.  I've tried reinstalling with no luck &  installing it on another one running 10.14.5 with the same results.  I also tried doing an upgrade from 10.5.9, but no luck there either.  The only way I could get them to apply was to downgrade ENS to version 10.5.9 & keep it there.  After that, all was well.  Here is a shot of both systems:

The first 2 are the failed policies with the installed 10.6.2 products listed & the next 2 are the working policies with the 10.5.9 installed products.  I noticed that the products listed for both are not displayed the same for the firewall & web control.  Not sure if that's a factor in this.  I've applied all of the latest extensions & license extension.  Both systems are running the latest agent & I'm running ePO ver 5.9.1.  The only other difference is hardware.  One is a brand new mac mini & the other is an iMac. 

As a side note, I have ENS for windows 10.6.1 running fine with all of the policies being applied correctly.

Re: ENS for mac 10.6.2 policies not applying

Hi ,

Could you please try below option - 

Open System PreferencesSecurity & Privacy and click Allow for the McAfee kernel extension to load on the system.

The reason is because the earlier approval for com.intelsecurity.FileCore.kext is not valid for the renamed kext: com.McAfee.FileCore.kext.
