force policy check on Mac  MA 4.5p1

Running MA 4.5.0.1453.

 

Is there anyway to get the agent to check and enforce  new policies like you can in windows?

 

Thanks

 

Jane

    Nopes....

    I think MA 4.6 might have that feature.

    I'll check and let you know.

    Jane,

     

    You can go to /Library/McAfee/cma/bin

    and execute from terminal

    sudo ./cmdagent

    that gives you the options available.

    You can do the following:

    Collect Full Props

    Enforce local Policies and Tasks

    Update and enforce new policies and tasks from ePO

    Send events

     

    The last option which says "Show GUI" doesnt work as yet because we dont have a UI as yet. But it is a placeholder for UI to be available in the future.

     

    Hope that helps.

     

    Regards,

    Sudeep

    This is a bump. 

     

    Is there a way to do this remotely?  For example, if you had the agent running and was successfully reporting back to ePO, but you did not have SSH or terminal access to the device?  Is there a way to force them to check in and enforce the policies?
