Question regarding creating a special client task

Hi, I wanted to ask a query. Is it possible to create a client task/multiple tasks which can do the following: 1. Use endpoint removal tool to uninstall all McAfee components from the endpoint 2. Reboot the machine 3. Install Agent and ENS components that I want to be installed on the endpoint.

 

Or it's only possible to do via SCCM deployment? Any query for this?

Re: Question regarding creating a special client task

Hi @akaraj26 ,

Thank you for reaching us on community!

This could be done from EPO with multiple client task :
1. Use endpoint removal tool to uninstall all McAfee components from the endpoint and reboot the machine in 1 task .

  • Go to system tree
  • Select the machine.
  • Action - > Agent -> Modify task on a single system -> New Client task Assignment.
  • Product : Agent; Task type: Product deployment - > create new task
  • Name the task
  • Select the product.
  • Make sure to add command line --accepteula --ENS.

    • To uninstall all McAfee products, use command --accepteula --ALL .
    • To uninstall ENS and McAfee Agent use command --accepteula –ENS –MA
    • NOTE: The machine would reboot automatically after uninstalling. To avoid this use switch --noreboot in the command line along with the – accepteula

    Example --accepteula –ENS –MA –noreboot.

  • Click on save.
  • Schedule the task as per your requirement.

2. steps to Install McAfee Agent from EPO :
https://docs.mcafee.com/bundle/agent-5.7.0-installation-guide/page/GUID-B2BF5E70-120D-4676-A0BC-E90F...

3.you can create a deployment task to deploy the endpoint products from EPO and set it to "Run immediately ". So that once the machine gets a new McAfee Agent installed, it will pull the deployment task from EPO and start installing the product in the next agent to server communication.

How to deploy ENS from EPO ?

I hope this helps.

Re: Question regarding creating a special client task

Thank you for the helpful guidance. 

Can the user defer the reboot of the machine after we use the endpoint removal tool via ePO on the machine, so that he can save his work before machine reboots?
