Re: Is anyone having difficulty installing McAfee Agent 5.7.1 - error on installing

Jump to solution

Hello @ccastbr 

Thanks for you response.

This is documented and in the below KB article:

https://kc.mcafee.com/corporate/index?page=content&id=KB94094&locale=en_US

We are working on this issue internally with dev team and as a workaround it suggested to go with the profile option.

I would request you to please subscribe the KB article and whenever any changes in KB you will get notified.

That is exactly the KB I am referring to!

It says "touch /etc/.profile"

What worked is   "touch ~/.profile"  so the empty file is in the root home.

So I can install the agent, but this is not a great solution for me.

Hi ccastbr, all,
The issue the KB discusses is known and is to be included (merged) in to an updated MA.

Sorry to report at this time it is too early to say what release that might be, the 'issue' is a very new discovery (this January)!
That said I'd ask that you watch/keep an eye on that KB, as new information becomes available the KB should be updated to reflect the change in details and status!

I am getting the following error installing Agent 5.7.1. we use a script to touch .profile in root and we had success in the past. For some reason, we are seeing this error now. Status 127. Any idea?

046|error: %pre(MFErt-2.0-131.i686) scriptlet failed, exit status 127
047|error: MFErt-2.0-131.i686: install failed
