    Integrating LinuxShield 1.5.1 with EPO v4

      Having installed the agents and software on my Linux box, I discovered that I had copied the wrong srpubkey.bin, reqseckey.bin and SiteList.xml from the EPO server - the master repo information was not configured.

      So I copied the files from the install folder of EPOAGENT3700LYNX on the EPO server to the linux box (/opt/McAfee/cma for bins and /opt/McAfee/cma/scratch/etc for xml and restarted the agent.

      No when I login to the web console and select Repositories I get an alert "Received Invalid Repository List"

      Is there anyway to correct this?

      I've tried to uninstall the agent, but I get a "not installed" message back for either -e or -q.

      If I try to reinstall rpm -ivh, it tells me it is already installed - so this is not an option.

      Any help would be great.

          Hello butlert,

          i have also installed McAfee on our Linux machines.
          My installation way:

          1. Share C:\Program Files\McAfee\ePolicy Orchestrator\DB\Software\Current\EPOAGENT3700LYNX\Install\0409 on epo server (for me Linux$)
          2. mount -t cifs //eposerver/Linux$ /mnt/mcafee/ -o user=mcafee
          3. rpm -ivh MFErt.i686.rpm
          4. rpm -ivh MFEcma.i686.rpm

          [root@linuxserver tmp]# rpm -ivh MFEcma.i686.rpm

          After this you can install or update your LinuxShield
          rpm -U LinuxShield-1.5.1-260.i386.rpm

          Thats all. Hope this will help.
