What is everyone's experiences with the new McAfee 5.0.x agent? I like the P2P function and am still testing it out but the Remote Agent Log seems to have lost some things and gained some things.
In the main log, no longer clear, simple way to watch the update/deploy/upgrade of items as the task runs. It's also not clear which sub log to view to get this info either.
The header of the log in the browser no longer shows the ePO server/Agent Handler it is configured to talk to. Having two ePO servers and a DEV ePO server, it's very helpful to know which one it's configured for.
formatted remote log files for easy to read logs (the split out logs, not the main log)
Split out logs
However, when viewing them, the formatting is not shown in an easy to read manner.
P2P to help distribute the repository load better
Not a full repository but at least the key things updated day after day are easily cached locally and saves WAN bandwidth.
So no one has any comments on my complaints? Does anyone agree, disagree, etc.? During a webinar on the new agent I asked a lot of these questions and was finally told to stop asking questions and just submit a ticket. Honestly I would have thought at least told to submit an FMR not a ticket. Oh well, I guess "it'll be better in the next version" 😉
