Mcafee Agent on client with multiple NICS. Which IP address does it use?

Hi there


i have installed the Mcafee client on to a host with multiple NICS with different IP addresses. One in on the normal commercial range which we have masks setup for system tree sorting, the other one has a range that we dont have a mask for and dont wish to make a mask for.

How can you choose which IP address that McAfee Client uses on the host, or rather which NIC it uses for managment, so the NIC/IP address i want to use, appears in the EPO console.

regards

J

You can check the registry key in HKLM\SOFTWARE\Network Associates\ePolicy Orchestrator\Agent\ and the MacAddress value to see what NIC EPO is using.

If you use multi NICs I would advise you look at McAfee's Knowledge Base and their article to tell EPO4 to use only AgentGUIDS as the primary PC identifier. That will make your Multi Nic EPO management a lot easier.
