afaik if there is no epo server in your environment then none of the agents should be in managed mode anyway??
no epo server is running in my environment. mcafee agent 4.5 can't be removed because it's in managed mode. i hoped that mcafee agent 4.5 p1 solves this problem but it doesn't. so i need to run my script to remove the agent when it's needed.
Hi, I understand that you have no epo server, but my point was that if you install the agent from the default download it has no references to any servers and should not go into managed mode.
From my understanding of the link you provided, you are getting a framepkg.exe file from some epo server somewhere to make your msi package from and that would contain references to that epo server. So I'm wondering if, when you deploy the msi it goes into managed mode and looks for the epo server the framepkg.exe originated from.
Why would you need the agent in an unmanaged environment anyway? Couldn't you just install VSE and set up your repositories within VSE (though I'm not sure how without going to each machine)?
thanks to you i think that i solved my problem. i uses the default mcafee agent 4.5 p1 package and i tested it on a virtual pc. it works fine. so i think it will work on real computers as well. i think that the framepkg_udp.exe that i used to create my package was the problem. it's for an epo environment and i don't have an epo server running so i think that's the mayor problem.
now it works and i'm happy. ;-)
thx a lot smiabe. you pushed me in the right direction.
