ePO: non-McAfee software information

Jump to solution

Greetigns,

Dear all.

I want to get client system information by ePO.

I can see "system properties", "Product", "Threat Events" and other McAfee product tabs by clicking client system name from system tree.

However, I cannot see non-McAfee software information that is on the client system.

Are there ways to get OEM software version inforamation by ePO?

I found "custom 1-4" columns in Computer Properties.

If writing a string to somewhere of system infomation from OEM software, Is it possible to display in these "custom 1-4" columns?

Thank You and Best Regards,

Hi Watanabet.

The values can be updated dynamically at run time. Here's a sample vbs code used to update the properties.

sub MA5x
objReg.GetStringValue HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE, "SOFTWARE\McAfee\Agent", "InstallRoot", strValue

strExecName = chr(34) & strValue & "maconfig.exe" & chr(34)
strExecParams = " -custom " & "-prop1 " & chr(34) & strProp1 & chr(34) & " -prop2 " & chr(34) & strProp2 & chr(34) & " -prop3 " & chr(34) & strProp3 & chr(34) & " -prop4 " & chr(34) & strProp4 & chr(34)

Set objShell = WScript.CreateObject( "WScript.Shell" )

objShell.run(strExecName&strExecParams),0,true
end sub

Hope this helps.

Andre

you can store anything you what in the custom property 1-4. The how is covered in the mcafee agent product guide.

But I don't really think it would be your best bet for a software inventory.

Greetings,

Dear Andrep1-san.

Thank you for helping.

I checked McAfee Agent Product Guide, Custom property 1-4 can be stored only a string that I specified when MA installation, right?

I want to dynamically link from OEM software version information to ePO side.

Do you have another good way ?
