Re: macOS Sierra 10.12 and McAfee Agent

Do you have a link to those release notes? I am looking at the ones downloaded from the epo console and that 5.0.4 English RTW and it doesn't have that section?

Re: macOS Sierra 10.12 and McAfee Agent

Hi all,

I can confirm that MA 5.0.4 and ENS 10.2.1 does support macOS Serra, but you do need to upgrade the agent to 5.0.4 BEFORE you upgrade OSX 10.11.6 up to macOS Sierra.

Re: macOS Sierra 10.12 and McAfee Agent

If this is a fresh install of macOS Sierra, can you run the 5.0.x agent and be good?

Thank you

Re: macOS Sierra 10.12 and McAfee Agent

If you are doing a clean install of macOS Sierra, you will need to use to use McAfee Agent 5.0.4. Downlevel agent versions are not compatible with Sierra.

Re: macOS Sierra 10.12 and McAfee Agent

The easiest way I have deployed an Agent 5.0.4 agent to MacOS Sierra is by creating an Agent Deployment Link.

System Tree --> Agent Deployment --> Actions --> Create Agent Deployment URL --> Ensure you have MAC selected and the correct Agent version for the build.

Have iOS Sierra go to deployment URL and enjoy!
