ENS on ePO and database servers?

Jump to solution

Hi

This may seem a silly question, I don't know if I missed reading this anywhere, so apologies ahead of time if I have.

Does one install the agent and ENS on the McAfee ePO and ePO database servers, and are there any gotchas that you need to be aware of once you do?

thank you!

@NGN Your ePO and database servers are systems that do still need to be protected from malicious attacks like any other, so it would be best practice to install some form of AV. The "gotchas" would just be ensuring that you are implementing appropriate scan configuration to not be scanning your database transactions/activity, and monitoring your ePO server after install to see if there are any exclusions that could be added to improve performance by eliminating scan overhead there as well (this depends on the load to your ePO, etc.)

Thanks for clearing it up for me - will make changes one by one to ensure the services are not prevented from working.
