Installing Agent through ePO on Unmanaged System

Jump to solution

Hello,

Is it possible to install McAfee agent through ePO on an unmanaged system (no agent previously installed, host just synced through LDAP)?

If so, how could this be accomplished?

 

Thanks!

Hello @User32655584 

Thanks for your post.

Yes, You can do that and ePO is designed to have the details of managed systems.

A system will become managed only when you are deploying McAfee Agent through ePO.

There are couple of ways to deploy:

1) System Tree-Select Machine-Actions-Deploy Agent -Provide Credentials and click Ok

please refer kb56386 for the requirements.

2) You can refer the below link for creating the package and run it on machine as Administrator manually ,Refer below KB

https://kc.mcafee.com/corporate/index?page=content&id=KB51661

3) You can use AD Sync option : System Tree-Group Details-Edit-Push Agent option

https://docs.mcafee.com/bundle/epolicy-orchestrator-5.10.0-product-guide/page/GUID-4799D38D-65F1-431...

4) You can create a Server Task for Unmanaged machines and run it.

You can use anyone of the above.

If deploying from ePO and if in case it is failing please refer server.log at ePO end and from client machine Frminst.log and Mfeagent log available in Windows-Temp-McAfee Logs.

Thank you Vivs!

The first option (deploy agent action) worked perfectly.
