agent handle

can agent handle do everything like epo? i mean that if epo is not working, could client update policy signature and send the event through agent handle instead of epo. If not, how can i do the HA for epo

Re: agent handle

Hello,

Yes, From Client events will be done by AH to SQL. But you can't push anything from Agent Handler if ePO is down. It can accept the updates / Events from clients.

Hi,

Maybe this helps;

McAfee SNS Journal, ePO Edition (August 2014)

"The handler provides updated site lists, policies, and policy assignment rules just as the ePO server does, and also caches the contents of the master repository, so that agents can pull product update packages, DATs, and other necessary information."

Re: agent handle

After shutdown EPO server Agent Handler still handle policy, task and other issues.

I tried it Works fine.
1. Shutdown EPO.
2. Uninstall VSE.
3. Then delete all directies/files about VSE.
4. Install VSE manually.
5. Open McAfee Agent Monitor, click Collect And Send Props and all tasks added and policies changed.

But without EPO we can't change policies and tasks.
And If you didn't choose AH as secondary Agent Handler at Agent Handler policy, clients doesn't communicate AH.
