    Changing agent management mode on Linux - query on requirement to rename key files

    dmease729

      Hi All,

       

      From the Managed Agent 4.6 Product Guide p46:

       

      "Export sitelist.xml, srpubkey.bin and reqseckey.bin from the McAfee ePO server to a temporary location on the target system.  If you are using McAfee ePO server 4.6, export agentfipsmode file along with the above mentioned files and rename the reqseckey.bin and srpubkey.bin to req2048seckey.bin and sr2048pubkey.bin respectively."

       

      When looking on the ePO server, <drive>:\Program Files (x86)\McAfee\ePolicy Orchestrator\DB\Software\Current\EPOAGENT3700LYNX\Install\0409 , I can see the following files:

       

      sitelist.xml
      srpubkey.bin
      reqseckey.bin
      agentfipsmode
      sr2048pubkey.bin
      req2048seckey.bin

       

      My query is - why are we instructed to copy the files and rename, rather than just simply using the 2048 files?  surely the non-2048 bin files dont contain the same key details that are contained within the 2048 bin files?

       

      cheers,
