This has been an issue even with the 4.8 agent and has been this way for a long time.  They are working on fixing this, but it won't be until at least the next major version of the agent - 6.0 or above.

Screenshot doesn't show 'last communication time'. Is agent on the client machine communicating to ePO server?

For giggles, check the UID; if it's zero then they may be signing in as root

@Vinothkumar Kindly confirm if the McAfee Agent is compatible to the Linux machines. If it is compatible, check if the client to server communication works fine. I hope it is just a communication issue.
