Deploy updated agent with command line parameters through ePO 4.6.6

Jump to solution

Hi,

I have just added 2 new agent handlers to our ePO solution and i am trying to push new agent via client task to update and refresh the new sitelist to include the new agent handlers.

I have created a new 'Product Deployment' to deploy the agent and i have added command line switch to the task  framepkg.exe /install=agent /forceinstall.

When i push this out it does not update the sitelist with the 2 new handlers

I have checked site siltelist xml under C:\Program Files (x86)\McAfee\ePolicy Orchestrator\DB\SiteList.xml and all entries are visable.

I have created a new framepkg.exe via epo server and manually installed on a server using framepkg.exe /install=agent /forceinstall and it updates fine.

Have i missed anything off or do i have an issue.

Any help is appreciated

Thanks,

Neil

In that case a deployment task is probably not required if you only need to refresh the sitelist.

Agents will pick up a new sitelist automatically when they call into ePO, providing ePO says there is a newer one available.

Take a look at Configuration - Agent Handlers.

You might just need to make a new handler assignment rule for the machines you want to have use a given Agent Handler.

A deployment task would not be used for new agent installs but you might try pushing the agent out this way:

Go to System Tree view.

Under System Tree Actions -  Select 'New Systems'

Under How to add systems, either of the 'Push' radio boxes have a selection at the bottom of the screen called 'Push Agent Using:' where you can select an agent handler.

Hopefully that would take care of it.

Agent deployment tasks are really for agent upgrades. there's some notes on this in the on-line help for the agent if you need.
