Question regarding the export/import file when installing McAfee ENS TP standalone.
I have a handful of Win10 workstations I need to install McAfee on. I only have access to the unmanaged standalone installer (10.7.0.1733), and I am only installing the Threat Protection module. Naturally I want to have the same settings on all of the workstations. I installed the McAfee Threat Protection module manually on one of the Win10 machines, launching the setupEP and using the GUI. After the installation finished, I went through the settings and customized the LocalUNC to point to a local repository to get Updates (my network is required to not be connected to the internet so I have to bring them in manually and stage them on a file server). I also customized the Quick Scan and Full Scan under Tasks to run at specific times and days of the week. These are the only customizations I set. I then exported the policy file using the ESConfigTool:
Everything installed ok, and at the very end of the installation, the installer indicated that the policy imported successfully. However, when I opened up the settings, none of the repository or scan tasks I had customized on the first machine were set on the second machine. Everything was just set to default settings.
Are things like the repository settings and scanning tasks not saved as part of the exported policy file, or am I not doing something right?
Is there a specific log file to look at for this? I've browsed through most of the log files, but I don't see anything obvious that would indicate a problem. Of course, there is a LOT to sift through with all of the log files, so it's certainly possible I missed something.

Hi @Former Member ,
Thank you for contacting McAfee Community,
Looking at the issue description it seems like that the method to customize standalone installation you are using needs to be changed. McAfee has one very handy tool called "Endpoint Security Package Designer" which will full fill your all requirement for standalone environment.
