Configuration from ePO - will only influence local configuration of the OAS. I think you mean you are disabling OnAccess Scanning???
It does not stop nails service
It's fine if it doesn't stop the nails service.
Sorry, what I am trying to say is that I've set the OAS policies in ePO to disabled, yet, when I check the agent with the CLI, the status argument still comes back with "Enabled".
I'm trying to determine what is required to make 100% sure OAS is disabled. Do I have to do that via the CLI (or web interface - which isn't supported on RHEL 5/6 64-bit IIRC) on each agent?
If the policy in ePO is set with OnAccess Scanning disabled and this policy gets assigned and applied to Linux machine then
/opt/NAI/Linuxshield/bin/nails on-access -s (or --status)
will still return "McAfeeVSEForLinux Daemon is running....."
Not sure what Web Interface not supported on RedHat 5/6 means - they have old versions of Firefox so local WebUI may not work - upgrading this or access from remote using later browser may work if iptables allows.
Also x64 versions have dependencies on Pam x86 and Libgcc x86
But if you set something in local interface then the policy pulled from ePO will overwrite it at policy enforcement interval.
If you try to install VSE 1.9.8 on RHEL5/6 (can't remember if both), you get a warning that the web daemon is not supported due to missing 32-bit libraries. Not a bid deal...
Indeed ... its in the KB supplied .... failing dependencies for the pam.i686
