There's not a whole lot to go on here
Can you clarify? What's failing? Push installs, manual installs, something else?
Push installs. Not tried manual yet,
To Windows 7 and server 2008 systems.
Windows firewall off (for testing)
Tried both with
VSE 8.8 and Agent 4.5 present (prevously unmanaged system)
Neither VSE 8.8 and Agent 4.5 present (prevously unmanaged system)
I can browse AD.
Also cannot find where to download epoagentmeta.zip and ma460win.zp to test manual install
MA 4.6 isn't on general release yet - should be by the end of the month, though, hopefully. In the meantime let's concentrate on the current version.
Check the server task log (in the ePO console) - what does it show for the failed tasks?
Try installing the agent manually on a machine using framepkg.exe - please see the MA 4.5 product guide for details.
So what combination of products should I be using? I just downloaded the most recent. ePO imagining it was a finished produts as it appears on my download page, and is not marked beta.
However I do need a complete product. Should I use ePO 4.5 and Agent 4.5? Or ePO 4.5 and Agent 4.5? or some othe combination?
Sever task log shows
Deploy McAfee Agent Status FAILED Source server Task
And the details show
5/17/11 6:00:36 PM Started: Deploy McAfee Agent to systems task 5/17/11 6:00:36 PM Deploying one agent 5/17/11 6:01:26 PM Completed: 0 5/17/11 6:01:26 PM Failed: 1 5/17/11 6:01:26 PM Expired: 0 5/17/11 6:01:26 PM Deploy McAfee Agent
You've got the complete product
ePO and MA versions are not tied together, so ePO 4.6 ships with the current latest agent, which is 4.5.
There should be more detail in the server task log: if you go to the subtasks tab, are there any more entries? If so, you may be able to click on them for more information...
I have gone back to agent 4.5--
