Sorry to say i have used up-to Agent 5.0.2. So i can' t suggest you .whether it does or not ?
Same issue. Working with MS cluster and multiple IP addresses.
The problem has started after agent upgrade from 4.8 to 5.0.2.
Upgrade to 5.0.3 didn't solve it.
The most terrible thing is that continuous ASCI communication cause the endless growing of RAM consumption by masvc.exe
I would like to see Agent log of one the impacted.
Any chance you are running DXL?
We had simmilar issue's in the past after upgrade/reinstall of the McAfee Agent on systems with DXL installed.
In our case DXL started to generate about 1 event per second, which was then send to ePo trough ASCII
If this is the case, should be resolved in latest version:
1092761 2.0.0 2.0.1 Issue: If you migrate a system with DXL installed from the current ePolicy Orchestrator server to a different ePolicy Orchestrator server and redeploy McAfee Agent from the new ePolicy Orchestrator server, DXL does not regenerate certificates. Consequently, DXL is unable to connect to the new DXL Broker.
Workaround: Reinstall DXL to resolve this issue.
Resolution: This issue is resolved in DXL 2.0.1.
