change agent after deployment

hi all

I deployed agents to several PCs and now I wand to make small change.

One of the properties when you set up agent is "Show the McAfee system tray icon".

supposed that originally I ticket this option, deploy the agent.

Than I decide that I want to unticket this option, i.e. users won't see the tray icon.

How can I populate this change to those pcs already have the "old" agent.

Thanks

HI Sam,

Do you want to uncheck the "Show the McAfee system tray icon" McAfee agent policy to all the PC that you deploy

McAfee agent

(or)

Do you want to deploy uncheck the "Show the McAfee system tray icon" McAfee agent policy  to the Specific machines.

(or)

Do you want to change your McAfee agent policy which is OLD like 4.0.

Re: change agent after deployment

well - I think I want option B.

Anyway I solved the problem myself - just changed the policy for the agent....

Can I just ask another thing... suppose I want that Agent policy x will apply only for PCs in location x, and Agent Policy Y will apply only for PCs in lcation Y. how can I do this?

thanks!

Re: change agent after deployment

Alright, You need to create two separate policy in policy catalog in ePO

like you said X & Y.

Make the X agent policy as "show agent tray icon"

and

Make the Y agent policy as "don't show agent tray icon".

Then come back to system tree tab and select the X group and edit the policy to X agent policy (In right side of selected group)

the same you have to do it for Y group....

Regards

thanks, this was helpful answer.

Can I ask somthing related -

what is the best way to ensure that all pcs in location x automaticly added to group x? there must be easy way than manually move them to the right group (that's wat i currently do).

Thankyou

Re: change agent after deployment

For your requirement you need to use tag in ePO.

Find the below KB article to know more about tags.

Re: change agent after deployment

You can either use Tag based sorting or you can even opt for IP based sorting.

In the groupX=>Group details=>Sorting criteria, you can use either tag or IP based.

To sort the machines into the correct group, make sure that you don't have any conflicting sorting criteria to the top of GroupX in the system tree orelse machine will be sorted to that Group rather than GroupX.
