This is not possible with HIPS 8.0 due to how the configuration is stored in the registry (registry dump does not work either). The HIPS configuration must be retrieved from the ePO server, by the McAfee Agent, after installation. However, HIPS 8.0 can be installed and configured, with the policy already in place by the McAfee Agent, within an image, but configuration changes/content updates must be made with the McAfee Agent and ePO server connectivity.

HIPS is an ePO-managed product only. There is not a way to locally configure the product, without ePO server management.
