I can see that McAfee Endpoint Security for Linux Threat Prevention 10.5.4 Build 106 available but I dont see any extension available for that.The only ENS Linux extension available is 10.2.0.103 but its version is lower than product version.It should be same or higher version than the package used
The ENS license extensions for MAC and Linux both don't match up to the ENS versions. The extension 184.108.40.206 is the latest for Linux.
Hi @chealey, It means if I use extension 10.2 and install ENA Linux 10.5.4 it will work? So extension criteria is only for windows.
Why there is a word license in the Linux extension which I think is not in windows
Only the Linux license extension has this lower version. The actual product itself uses the ENS extensions. So if you are installing ENS Linux 10.5.4, you should have ENS TP / Common extensions 10.5.4 + or 10.6.1 checked in.
This specific license extension for Linux is an add on as such. But the policy itself for ENS is the same one for all platforms - the license extension will advise you one which settings can and can't be applied to certain platforms.
I am confused now..
You mean to say irrespective of platform(Windows,Linux,Mac) on which we deploy ENS package it should be supported by common ENS extension and there is no seperate extension for Linux or Mac?
Correct - irrespective of platform there are one set of ENS extensions. There is an additional extension for Mac and Linux which are the 1.2.x ones you were mentioning earlier in the thread.
Thank you for the information Chealey. I wish if McAfee would have posted a note about this in the download site would actually avoid the confusion for most of the customers 🙂
Thanks and Regards,
It is actually mentioned in the installation guide:
