McAfee Agent deployment to Macintosh credentials

Is there a requirement for the account that is used to deploy the McAfee agent to be an actual local account on a Mac?

Can a domain account be used if the domain account is an admin on the local machine?

When I deploy to a Mac with a domain admin account, the return is Failed.

When I deploy to a Mac with a domain admin account that is also added to the local Mac's Directory Utility Administrative tab, the return is Failed. Same deal whether I include 'domain\' or not.

If I use a local account that's an admin on the Mac, then it works.
