I found the answer in the Docs..............
When I run McAfeeFire to try and configure some basic settings, the GUI will not unlock w/o a password.
Considering that there has not been any cofiguration of anything other than downloading the Orchestrator Client and the HIP 7.0 Client, is there a way to unluck and configure HIP?
The default password to unlock the Client UI is 'abcde12345' as documented in the HIPS 7.0 product documentation.
