No one got any suggestions?
Is this the only forum for mcafee support or can anyone suggest any others?
Any body alive out there?!
Are any of the managed systems running firewalls?
The RSD is sort of a port scanner. If a firewall is set to drop all packets then to the RSD it would be invisible.
Only windows xp firewall - do i need to add exceptions?
I removed all and scanned again and now its only showing as 2 detected systems out of 40+ managed devices?
RSD sensor works in parallel to, and transparently to, agent-server communication, so there may be that your RSD sensor (if any) if in a LAN where no characteristic traffic is present (ie. it just sees those 2 clients) while agents communicate independently of RSD.
If you have a DHCP server that your clients use you could deploy the sensor to that server and see far more clients from that moment it starts working.
I had issue deploying RSD but it is now deployed succesfully to both my domain controllers.
I am not detecting any new devices though.
I just found out about RSD 4.7 that has some new functionality among other things its traffic now routed through the Agent so you might find out about any errors there...but I assume the RSD own log still exists so detection errors might be present there.
I'm not sure about the DCs, do they have also DHCP server function? Also is your RSd sensor set to make use of DHCP (throught the policy) ?
I'd test it by deleting an existing host from ePO system tree and the detected items and have that host renew its IP address and see if it reappears in the detected hosts table...
I have a lot of problems with EPO!! Im not finding it very easy!
I cant update packages. Everything, and i mean everything, that i try to check in gives me a failed message like below:
Everything seems to download correctly but says componentservice.failedlist??
Any idea's on this?
Im very tempted to completely uninstall and try again.
Do you try to use the built-in software update feature? Please try downloading those components from the McAfee download site separately and check them in one by one. (I always did this way without problems). See if it makes a difference.
In addition just take a look at the log that is used for this feature you mentioned above: maybe you'll find more information there.
