Initial Mcafee Agent deployment

Jump to solution

With an initial mcafee agent deployment, we are seeing hosts ping up to 45 repositorys (Superagents) to determine the closest one before pulling policies from the EPO server.

Am I doing something wrong here ? I would like to see just communication with the epo server to pull the policies.

Thanks in advance

Hi Kerry - I recognise that name, I think

Which agent version are you using? The behaviour you describe was changed in MA 4.8 Patch 1 - please see Item 5 in the release notes: PD24568

What you are seeing is normal. They have to find the closest repository for file downloads.

It will go to ePO to get all of its policies and if you have a policy that assigns a specific repository, it will start after the policy has been downloaded and applied

Hi Joe - good to hear from you

We are using MA 4.8 Patch 1, so I guess we should be working as I wanted.

Sorry, I need more coffee... are your MA 4.8 P1 machines working correctly then, or are they still pinging all the repos before talking to the server?

Hi Joe,

No coffee needed !

I  can confirm, the agent communicates with the epo server then applies the policies for the mcafee agent, which contains the correct superagent listing - Hooray!!!
