    Remotely Trigger McAfee Agent "Send Events"

    kink80

      I know you can do some cmdline functions with the McAfee Agent (i.e. cmdagent.exe /P /E /C /S) Is there a way to remotely trigger a McAfee Agent (4.5.0.1810) "Send Events" execution? This would come in handy for Endpoint Encryption installations and trouble shooting.

          Sending an agent wakeup call from the console should trigger the upload of any events, as far as I know...

            Was this question ever answered or was there a solution found ?

            Looking at EEPC 6.1.3 I see this in the MfeEpe.log

             

            2012-01-15 09:42:47,404 INFO    EpoPlugin                            userHandler: Note, press Send Events button in McAfee Agent to hasten delivery (see KB78165).

             

            BUT, I can't find KB78165 and I want to "Send Events" programatically via a script.

            I'm not sure that cmdAgent.exe /P provides the same functionality as pressing the "Send Events" can anyone confirm or deny ?

             

            Thanks !

              That's correct. CmdAgent.exe /p will do the same things.

               

              Below are the command line switches for CmdAgent.exe .

               

               

              Option              Description

              /c                    Checks for new policies. The agent contacts the ePO server for new or updated policies, then enforces

              them immediately upon receipt.

               

              /E Prompt the agent to enforce policies locally.

               

              /P Send properties and events to the ePO server.

               

              /S Displays the agent monitor.

                CmdAgent.exe /p doesn't seem to do the same thing as pressing "send events" button.

                 

                I need a command to activate a migrated EEPC 6.2 client from Safeboot 5.1.9.

                 

                Haven't come across anything yet... still looking

                  I agree performing a CmdAgent.exe /p does not accomplish the same thing as pressing the "Send Events" button. I am more inclined to believe that the CmdAgent.exe /p does a "Collect and Send Props". I would love to figure out how to do the "Send Events" remotely though.
