I discovered today that 2 random user PCs have been added to Global Repository list as SuperAgents, which is weird.
I have only 1 Repository policy and I don't have SA turned on.
I don't know how to determine from system info whether if it's SA or not.
Anyway.. since those PCs most likely aren't really SA's, how can I remove those entries from Global Repository list ?
McAfee Agent mostly 4.8.1500
Smaller portion of McAfee Agent 5.0.2620
Solved! Go to Solution.
To really determine if your Agent is trying to make the machine a SA is to locally check the Agent.ini file within C:\ProgramData\McAfee\Common Framework
- McAfee Agent is going to make it a SA & repository
- Not a SA or repository
Otherwise you should be able to follow this if the machines still exist within ePO: https://kc.mcafee.com/corporate/index?page=content&id=KB55654&actp=LIST
Check those machine McAfee Agent > General policy. And remove that policy and assign your ePO normal general policy. In next agent to server communication those repositories will automatically remove from Distributed repositories tab.
In addition to the recommendations given from fitchsoccer342, and hem, please also check if you have a Policy Assignment Rule in place for any systems in a group, a particular user/group, or for a certain tag.
You can also look at each system listed as a SADR and select Actions > Directory Management > view assigned policies to see what is on each based on group or rule assignment.
This seems indeed an issue that's described in KB83192.
I have only 1 Agent General Default Policy, besides the McAfee premade Policy, and it does not have, and has never had, "Convert agents to SuperAgents" checked.
It's annoying, but nothing disastrous. I'll wait for the 5.1.2 release. Thanks all.
