p57 of 6.1 Installation Guide: "You need only supply your credentials using the Credentials action."
I am aware that you need your grant credentials to access the menshen update site directly, but from what I can see there is nowhere to configure credentials on the NSM, and indeed I have just downloaded a signature set and new software on a new NSM install. Is there something I am missing?
Tested on 184.108.40.206 server:
new NSM server -> GUI -> My Company (default domain) -> Manager -> Update Server -> Signature Sets -> 220.127.116.11 -> Download = success
new NSM server -> GUI -> My Company (default domain) -> Manager -> Update Server -> Software -> M1250 -> 18.104.22.168 (sensorsw_1250_6117) -> Download = success
new NSM server -> GUI -> My Company (default domain) -> Manager -> Update Server -> Automation ->
neither the downloading or deployment sections ask for credentials.
If you look at one of 6.x release note, it's explained.
Update Server Authentication Enhancements
In earlier releases of 6.0, a separate authentication was required to access McAfee Update Server for downloading latest
signature sets. With this release, upon a successful login to the Manager, you are automatically logged into the McAfee
Update Server as well. Therefore, the Manager > Update Server > Credential page has been removed.
That was my main source of confusion - If this page has been removed in a 6.0 release, why is the above in the recently released (last week) 6.1 installation guide?
I got your point. I will talk to document team and ask them to rectify.
