    Log files on Macs

    jmcleish

      Hi,

       

      Not very familiar with Macs at all and I don't have one to hand. But is there an on-access /or deteciton logs similar to what you have on windows machines?

       

      One of our support guys has asked as someone is reporting problems on his Mac with Adobe products and he wanted to check if anything is being blocked at all.

       

      Running 9.0.0.4156 installed from ePO 4.5.0.753

       

      Cheers

          I've spoken to Tech Support about this and they've said that they will document how to enable and view these logs. Once this happens we can create a Knowledgebase article covering this.

           

          Thanks,

           

          Rod.

              For AV and Application Protection: /var/log/McAfeeSecurity.log

              For Firewall: /var/log/appfirewall.log

               

              To enable debug logging:

              - Edit /etc/syslog.conf
              - There is line towards end saying "local7.info            /var/log/McAfeeSecurity.log"
              - Replace ".info" with a ".*"
              - save the file and then restart the Machine
              - You should see debug messages in the McAfeeSecurity.log file.
