McAfee Agent Monitor equivalent on Mac OS

We have been running ePO 4 to manage our Windows clients happily for a while. We are just starting to use it for our Mac clients as well. I find it helpful sometimes to use the "McAfee Agent Monitor" (CmdAgent.exe /s) on Windows to see what is going on with the agent, enforce policies, etc. However, I can't find any equivalent on the Mac. I can see the logs (/Library/McAfee/cma/scratch/etc/log), but can't interact further, such as enforcing policies, etc. Is there a way to do the same with the Mac agent?

Thanks,

Craig

If you have a McAfee icon under MacOS you can try to enforce the MA policy from ePO that also shows MA icon

RE: McAfee Agent Monitor equivalent on Mac OS

Thanks, but the setting in ePO for displaying the McAfee icon explicitly states it is Windows only.

curious if you've found something?

RE: McAfee Agent Monitor equivalent on Mac OS

No, nothing yet. Stuck with watching the log and manually waking up an agent through the ePO console.

I'm guessing this still hasn't changed?  Anybody know of any plans for the future?

I have also heard nothing about them making an agent monitor tool on the client.  It would be nice, but I don't know of an ETA on such a tool.
