using Linux as a super agent

Jump to solution

I just inherited another ePo instance where they use HTTP repository.  I would like to use the server as a super agent instead of HTTP repository .

Question.

What is the requirement to use Linux as Super agent?

Can I remove Httpd and samba and still good to use as a Super Agent.

You shouldn't need httpd either, as the webserver in the agent is self-contained.  However, you would probably want to test that to be sure.  When you make it a superagent, you will have to define the directory in Linux format, but don't create the directory ahead of time.  The agent conversion process needs to create that.  Once it shows up as a repository in the distributed repositories, check to see of you see any errors in the agent logs.  They should be located in /var/McAfee/agent/logs directory.  The macmnsvc log is for superagent functionality logging.

I am checking on whether the 2 services you mentioned are required or not, so I will get back with you.  As far as I know, you only need to apply superagent policy to the system.  However, superagent functionality is over http, so I am not sure then if you can remove httpd.  Since there is no network share authentication with superagents, I don't believe Samba would be in use for that.
