include McAfee Agent on an image

Hi everybody,

A former colleague included McAfee agent on an image.

I don't know if he followed the recommendations on this page: https://kc.mcafee.com/corporate/index?page=content&id=KB84356 

Also I wanted to go check the guid in the regedit
It does not appear as you can see in the attached screenshot.

However, the agent's state indicates an "OK".


Can you tell me if this is normal?
Thanks in advance.

Re: include McAfee Agent on an image

Hello @cpc464 

If someone has followed the below KB article:

https://kc.mcafee.com/corporate/index?page=content&id=KB84356&_ga=2.230540316.18668323.1583115293-98...

in that case it seems ok/normal to me.

However, the agent's state indicates an "OK".

Just wanted to confirm whether the communication with ePO is correct and Agents are connecting with ePO at regular interval.

Hello @cpc464 ,

The is a normal behavior.

when you run the query "maconfig -enforce -noguid" on the master image then the key in registry  Agent GUID will be removed and MA service will be stopped.

Once the deployment happens from the master image and deployed system is started it will start the agent service automatically and it will create a new AgentGUID.
