McAfee VirusScan Enterprise for Linux install on standalone machine

Hello,

I want to install McAfee on a standalone Linux machine that has no internet access. I downloaded the trial for "McAfee VirusScan Enterprise for Linux" but when I tried to install it produced an error message:

MFEcma(x86_64) 5.0.5.658 or above is required for installation to continue.

Does the trial not include everything for a standalone install?

It doesn't seem like it, not in this particular case.

That dependency, I believe, is trying to look for a piece of the McAfee Agent.

I would recommend you the below article which has step by step VSEL installation method.

https://kc.mcafee.com/corporate/index?page=content&id=KB81135

The KB article says VSEL 1.9.2, but it is applicable to VSEL 2.x.

Hold on, may i what is the OS version and VSEL version that you are trying to install....?

Re: McAfee VirusScan Enterprise for Linux install on standalone machine

I'm trying to install this on CentOS 7. I'm not sure on what version the eval but it did include this file: ISecTP-10.2.2-1098-Eval-standalone.tar.gz

Looking over the install instructions it says that it requires "McAfee Agent" to be installed on the system but it never came with the eval so I'm not sure where I would get that.

Re: McAfee VirusScan Enterprise for Linux install on standalone machine

Thank you for providing more information. ISecTP is belongs to ENSLTP (Endpoint security for Linux) product not VirusScan Enterprise. Both are two different product. I suggest you install ENSLTP instead VSEL

So, if you are installing ENSLTP Standalone version, then you have to install Agent before as it is prerequisites for the point product. You can download  Agent from product download site. If you are going to install ENSLTP 10.6, then download Agent 5.6 from product download site and install.

Agent installation method on non windows : 

* Download Agent from download site

* unzip the package

* Execute the below command on terminal window.

sudo chmod +x install.sh

sudo ./install.sh -i

Post that install ENSLTP by following the installation guide.

I'm trying to look through the downloads to get the agent but I'm not having any luck. However I think I found a better solution by using McAfee VirusScan Command Line for Linux. I was able to easily install and update with the latest DAT file without any need for an agent.
