Installing McAfee Agent on Linux Ubuntu (HIPS/VSE)

Hi all,

I have installed the agent on Windows with ease but this is my first time installing the agent on Ubuntu boxes.  I'm trying to install it on Ubuntu server 64 bit OS.  Usually when I install the agent it syncs up with the epo server and installs HIPS/VSE.  Is this going to be a manual process?  I checked epo and I don't see this server under detected systems.  It said that the agent was successfully installed.

I need help with getting this linux box to come up under detected systems, install VSE and HIPS.  Any help would be great!

Thanks

Re: Installing McAfee Agent on Linux Ubuntu (HIPS/VSE)

If the agent is running and managed (and the install log suggests this is so) then take a look at the agent log for possible errors (/opt/McAfee/cma/scratch/etc/log).

If there are no errors there then perhaps the agent has appeared under 'lost&found' in the ePO system tree ?

Re: Installing McAfee Agent on Linux Ubuntu (HIPS/VSE)

root@Keynote:~# /opt/McAfee/cma/scratch/etc/log

-su: /opt/McAfee/cma/scratch/etc/log: Permission denied

root@Keynote:~#

Not sure why I am getting denied when I'm logged with via root.

I checked epo under lost and found and its not there.  Basically epo has not found the linux box.  Any where else that I can check the logs?

Just to be clear, log is the actual log file, not a directory path.

You'll need to use the 'more' command or something similar to read it

root@Keynote:/# /opt/McAfee/cma/scratch/etc

-su: /opt/McAfee/cma/scratch/etc: Is a directory

root@Keynote:/# ls

I dont see the log file when I do 'ls'... should I be in the etc directory and then do this command?

Yes, unless you also specify the full path with the command.

Don't forget you can always check where you are using 'pwd'

Found it.

root@Keynote:/# cd /opt/McAfee/cma/scratch/etc/

root@Keynote:/opt/McAfee/cma/scratch/etc# pwd

/opt/McAfee/cma/scratch/etc

root@Keynote:/opt/McAfee/cma/scratch/etc# ls

cabundle.cer  log  sitecache.bin  SiteListTemplate.xml  SiteList.xml

root@Keynote:/opt/McAfee/cma/scratch/etc#

Thanks

Time to check the logs

Linux server is not communicating with epo because my palo alto firewall is blocking it.
