Different shield icon ?

Hello.

We are running Epo 4.5 build: 753

Now when we deploy agents on machines the shield icon is different.

Now it looks like this:

Mcafee2.png

It used to look like this:

mcafee1.png

The agent version on both machines is Version [4.5.0.1270]

Just wondering if this is a new look, sorry for the noob question.

It seems the machines with the new icon have a full install of the antivirus, I can run scans and everything.

When I right click the new shield icon I get different options.

Hope this is just something new and I don't have a deployment issue, but if this is something new why doesn't

it update it on all the machines ? Do I have to redeploy all the agents and "Force installation over existing version" ?

Thanks.

Re: Different shield icon ?

The new icon is brought about by enabling the option to "Show the McAfee system tray icon" in the agent policy.  By default this feature is turned on in ePO.

Yes you should, if you right click and go to about you will see options to show you the properties of the VSE and the Agent.  The VSE icon should be the old icon you are used to.

Can you check your setting in "User Interface Policies"?  Make sure you have "Show the system tray icon ...." selected.

VirusScan Enterprise 8.7.0 > User Interface Policies >

""

That's inherited to all the computers.

McAfee Agent > General >

""

There's really three icons running around

This one and the other two in my first post... I just don't get this...

Thanks for your help Bethwel.

Re: Different shield icon ?

the different icons that you see represents the different agents running on your machines.  the first one you started with is for agent 4.5 and the second one is for agent 4.0.

The first one is new icon on McAfee Agent 4.5. The second one just VirusScan Enterprise alone (not included McAfee Agent), check the second one if MA 4.5 installed? If have check options show icon enabled

Re: Different shield icon ?

Thanks guys for helping me out.

This was a different agent version now I have 4.5 deployed on all machines I still can't get the "old" shield icon but I guess that doesn't matter.
