EPO 4.0 patch 4 on a Win 2003 server. Working great until.. Recently upgraded the 4.0 Agent from patch 1 to patch 2. Deploys from the server with no issues, seems to work fine, but when I create the Framepkg.exe and try to install manually, fails with the same error no matter the credentials used when creating the package. Did work with patch 1. "The account name is invalid or does not exist, or the password is invalid for the account name specified"
Have you tried using a VERY simple name and password for the crededntials ? (e.g Freddyboy/Freddyboy) - ePO used to be a bit fussy about certain characters etc. in usernames and passwords or paths etc.
Username/ Password does not contain any special characters, again it worked with patch 1. Thought the password fussiness was with the DB. It works fine as long as you push it from the server. Recall there being a similar issue with a previous version.
Agent 4 patch 2 doesnt support embedded user credentials as part of the framepkg.exe now.
7. Issue: The McAfee Agent no longer provided an embedded credential installation package option. (Reference: 432427) Release Notes for McAfee Agent 4.0.0 Patch 2 (Windows) Resolution: An embedded credential installation package is now available through McAfee Tier III Support. For information on obtaining this package, see KB article KB59954.
We have had loads of problems since deploying patch 2 - 'unable to find valid repository', repositories in the list being ignored, updates only working from the ePO server repository, errors with the catalog.z file......
