What version of CMA are you using?
Here are my software versions:
ePO 4.0 with Patch 1
McAfee Agent for Windows (CMA) : 4.0
McAfee Agent for Solaris (CMA) : 3.7
McAfee Agent for Linux (CMA) : 3.7
Host Intrusion Prevention 7.0
You should be using HIP 7.0 patch 2. The Solaris agent was updated.
I looked at my versions again and found that I am already using HIPS 7.0 with Patch 2.
Here's the file name for my HIPS package just to confirm that I'm using the correct one.
I'm pretty sure it is a CMA/ePO issue based on what I've seen in the Solaris 10 Workstation's logs. How about this, could there be an issue caused by this factor: the root account is not allowed to log in remotely on our boxes. In order to perform any root activities on a box, I have to log in remotely (using ssh) as a regular user and then "su" to change to root. Does CMA/ePO perform remote actions as root? Could that affect why CMA/ePO can't install HIPS?
When you installed CMA, did you "su to root" before installing? I would assume you did but if CMA isn't running as root, then it won't have the proper access to install anything that's sent down. I've ran into this before but I can't remember what I did to resolve it.
When I installed the CMA I had to su to root. I also had to su to root when I manually installed the HIPS package.
