Anti-Virus License Type: Evaluation


I've been using EPO 5.0.0 since I started with a new company in September. Yesterday I noticed that briely during startup clients are seeing "Evaluation" on the McAfee agents (See Capture 1).

I've checked my grant number and it only lists ePolicy Orchestrator under My Products.

Within EPO under software manager it's showing 2 checked in Licensed softwares McAfee Agent 4.8 and McAfee VirusScan Enterprise 8.8 (See Caputre 2).

What am I missing? Why are my clients showing as Evaluations due to run out in December??

Kind Regards

Re: Anti-Virus License Type: Evaluation

As you are using ePO 5.0.0 it may be the issue covered in McAfee support article:

KB78686 - ePO 5.0 servers installed with valid license key stop sending policies and tasks after 90 days

That is resolved by upgrade to ePO 5.0.1 or 5.1.0

However I'd suggest you first call McAfee Customer service to have them check your grant ID(s) and how they link to your ePO License key(s) to be sure all your registred products are correctly assigned.
