Create and download agent installation package epo 4.0

Jump to solution

Hi all,

Is there a way to download the framework package in ePO 4.0 console for manually installation? I know I can download it, but can I select the branch from where I want the agent from in the same way it is possible to do in epo 4.5. Where I can select the agent ( by selectiong the branch) I want to use to create the installer (framework.exe).

Thanks for your time

Yes, you're right because you cannot change a MA package from any branch to the current one, you have to delete it.

Then the only thing you can do is to locate the framepkg package you want to use (4.5 under evaluation branch) at C:\Program Files\McAfee\ePolicy Orchestrator\DB\Software\Evaluation\EPOAGENT3000\Install\0409\framepkg.exe

The only thing is you won't be able to set embedded credentials

The same you you can create custom agent package. In the system tree->New system->Create and download agent installation package.

To check in the package to different branch than Current, you need to enable it from server setttings (Configuration->server settings->repository package->edit->check the box 'Allow package check-in for any repository branch'.

Hi Hem,

I have the configuration from (Configuration->server settings->repository package->edit->check the box 'Allow package check-in for any repository branch') as you suggested  but I still can´t download the installation package selecting the agent version from the branch I would like to.

In the pictures attached in epo45 I can select the agent version, but it´s not available in epo 4.0

If you check the "Use credentials" box then you have to set credentials, otherwise you won't be able to build the package. If you don't need embedded credentials then uncheck this box and you'll be able to continue to the next step.

Thanks for the input

If I check the credentials box the package will be installed using those ones provided, if not, they´ll use the logged on user. Maybe I´m wrong, that´s what I understand. But the "problem" I´m having is that I can´t select the agent version which I want to use. There is no "Select product Package" option as there is in epo 4.5.

Ups sorry, I misunderstood what you said. Can you post a screenshot of your master repository where McAfee Agent appears?

I think the problem can be that ePO 4 won't let you choose which McAfee Agent you want to install onto unamanged nodes but only when creating a deployment task (to managed nodes, of course). Maybe the easiest way would be checkink MA 4.5 to the current branch, build the new package that will select only MA from cyrrent branch, and once finished check again MA 4.0 to the current branch if you still want to use it.

I thought about that option you suggest but for some reason, as you can see,  the "change branch" option is not enable and I don´t have the agent to check it into the console...
