"Agent service is now stopped"


Over the weekend I updated ePO to 5.3.1 and agents to When I go to the Agent Status Monitor I see a red error "Agent service is now stopped". All the MacAfee services are running and its working fine I, don't understand why it showing stopped. I downgraded a few clients to 4.8 and the error is not appearing. Is this a bug?

Re: "Agent service is now stopped"

check out kb McAfee KnowledgeBase - McAfee Endpoint Security Products: McAfee Management Service and dependencies

New dependencies that give weird results when not in place.

Agent 5.0.2 is far from their best release in regards to agents.
