Log files on Macs

Hi,

Not very familiar with Macs at all and I don't have one to hand. But is there an on-access /or deteciton logs similar to what you have on windows machines?

One of our support guys has asked as someone is reporting problems on his Mac with Adobe products and he wanted to check if anything is being blocked at all.

Running 9.0.0.4156 installed from ePO 4.5.0.753

Cheers

Re: Log files on Macs

I've spoken to Tech Support about this and they've said that they will document how to enable and view these logs. Once this happens we can create a Knowledgebase article covering this.

Thanks,

Rod.

Re: Log files on Macs

For AV and Application Protection: /var/log/McAfeeSecurity.log

For Firewall: /var/log/appfirewall.log

To enable debug logging:

- Edit /etc/syslog.conf
- There is line towards end saying "local7.info            /var/log/McAfeeSecurity.log"
- Replace ".info" with a ".*"
- save the file and then restart the Machine
- You should see debug messages in the McAfeeSecurity.log file.
