McAfee DXL Integration Pattern Engine and DXL Broker Services

Jump to solution

For Microsoft Windows DXL Broker systems I am trying to verify that by disabling the services:

1. McAfee DXL Integration Pattern Engine 

2. McAfee DXL Broker 

This will effectively stop a Windows Server from acting as a DXL Broker.  (no listening on tcp/8883)

To provide more context, I have two different MSWin systems: SADR w/ DXL Broker AND an AH+SADR w/ DXL Broker.   DXL will be temporarily disabled within the environment AND we are asked to shutdown all services related to it (e.g. MLOS DXL Brokers are shutdown, DXL Client policy disables DXL, etc.).   Is disabling the above two services (on Windows) a solid way to disable "?  Can someone see a pitfall in taking this action versus outright removing the DXL Broker from the MSWin system?   I just need to know this is not going to negatively impact either AH, SADR, or the DXL Client on these systems.

What is the purpose of doing this?  The only negative affect would be that the clients can't connect to a broker.  Otherwise dxl has no functionality for an agent handler itself or sadr functions.

That is exactly what I wanted to be certain of; that those two services would not impact any other functionality on a system acting as either a SADR or AH.

Purpose - sometimes we just do what we are told.  "Just turn it off for now..."  In that case, I could remove DXL Broker or disable the service.  Had to do one, otherwise tcp/8883 stays open and I hear, "the scan says the port is open .... I said turn it off..."

tks
