User account used to install the product using the client task

Hi, when running a client task to install a VSE or updated agent to end machines, which user account it will use?

That account should have the install permission on the end clients?

Will it use the account which is running the client task? or the account that used when installing and configuring the ePO server.

Please help me to understand this. I am facing an issue while running the client task the product is not getting installed or uninstalled.

thanks in advance.

Hi

I am assuming you already have agent deployed is the client systems reporting to epo ?

When the Agent is installed it is done with an administrative account. During installation the Agent is elevated to SYSTEM (the Windows equivalent of linux's root). All McAfee point products are installed and executed under that same priviledge level.

Thank you for the swift response. This helps a lot.
