What I need : It would be best if I could customise an Agent installer such that once installed, the agent will know the IP of my ePO and automatically communicate with it and add itself into my ePO Systems list. That way, I could just instruct the desktop admin to install the custom McAfee Agent installer during new desktop deployments and it will make my job easier.
I have good news: this is exactly how the agent installer works at the moment
All you need to do is to give the desktop admin a copy of the framepkg.exe from your ePO server, and get them to install this on any new machine. This installer includes the details of your ePO server so the new machine knows exactly where to go
Hi Joe, thanks! It works!
Glad to hear it
Sorry to trouble you. The framepkg file work on WinXP, but it can't seem to install itself on Win7 Pro. Any idea why?
I got the file from the ePO server.
Exact directory location is :
\Program Files\McAfee\ePolicy Orchestrator\DB\Software\Current\EPOAGENT3000\Install\0409
I copied the framepkg.exe file to a shared software directory where everyone can access. Double clicking on the file yields nothing. No popup display to announce its installing at all. I only got a few HDD light blinking, after which my system appeared as nothing happened.
I also saw another 2 framepkg.exe files in another 2 locations, namely :
\Program Files\McAfee\ePolicy Orchestrator\DB\Software\Previous\EPOAGENT3000\Install\0409
\Program Files\McAfee\ePolicy Orchestrator\DB\RepoCache\Current\EPOAGENT3000\Install\0409
I didn't use the latter two.

For Win7 you'll have to right-click / Run As Administrator, even if you're logged in as an admin - UAC is getting in the way
Oic. I tested and it works! Thanks Joe.
