Failed to get a lock on repository

I have checked in ENS platform, web control, threat prevention, firewall (10.5.1) and McAfee Agent 5.0.5. I can't seem to update in Software Manager because components failed to check in.

Re: Failed to get a lock on repository

When you try to check-in a product/component do they instantly fail?

If so, you probably aren't getting out to McAfee to pull the software down.

Re: Failed to get a lock on repository

They are instantly failing, which is why I manually downloaded and checked in the packages from McAfee download's page, and then upgrading the respective products. Am I doing it incorrectly?

Thanks.

Re: Failed to get a lock on repository

No, you're not doing it incorrectly. Manually downloading and uploading to ePO is common practice.

It sounds like you're being blocked from connecting to McAfee from ePO(Software Manager).... I'd take a look at FWs first, run a packet capture if you can from ePO Server. I'm pretty positive its a network issue.

Re: Failed to get a lock on repository

I am unable to even find McAfee Agent 5.0.5 in the software repository to check in.

The highest I see is 5.0.4.283

Click "Refresh" in Software Manager and see if that does it. Although, newly released minor versions are not always accessible immediately via Software Manager. You may have to download from internet.

Tried - no dice.

Hasn't it been out for a few weeks now?

Will try direct download. thanks!

Re: Failed to get a lock on repository

Yeah but that doesn't mean too much when it comes to availability in Software Manager

I looked at mine to double check as well and I also have 5.0.4.283

Re: Failed to get a lock on repository

I appreciate the sanity check!

Re: Failed to get a lock on repository

No 5.0.5 from my end yet either. You're not crazy.
