Trouble re-deploying mcafee agent to a batch of workgroup servers

I'm having an issue trying to re-deploy the McAfee agent from the epo console to a batch of server 2003 machines in a workgroup environment. I keep getting the following error which is obviously due to the way I'm inputting the credentials: "Failed to authenticate with remote system, system error: The parameter is incorrect."

The required fields are Domain, Username, and password. There is no domain so I'm at a loss as what to put in that field. Doing a single machine with the hostname in the domain field works, but that method can't be used for a batch of machines.


Is it possible to do this if the local administrator passwords are all uniform?
