Hello @Former Member 

Thanks for your post!

I would like to request you to please refer the below KB article:

https://kc.mcafee.com/corporate/index?page=content&id=KB72477

The private key has to be extracted from the p12 cert and password removed before importing it into epo and the unencrypted private key is imported separate.
