Absolutely. You will just have to either:
PULL install it form the Server
- or -
PUSH install it from ePO, referencing local admin creds on the target device
(I do this all the time)
I don't understand what you mean by Pull or Push?
I can't push it from the ePO server since the server is not recognized because it is not on the domain.
Are you referring to manually installing it on the server then doing a "collect and send props"?
Also, do I just download the latest McAfee Agent package from my downloads online or do I want to copy the FramePkg.exe that is on my ePO server:
<System Drive>\Program Files\McAfee\ePolicy Orchestrator\DB\Software\Current\<Product Id>\Install\0409
if you want to install it on standalone you can download from site, else download it from epo and install (make sure that your system is able to connect to epo if you want to manage the machine from epo)
How do you install it from ePO by using the IP Address?
first of all, McAfee Agent is an normal installer package and is installed by the Windows Installer. The package includes the FQDN name and IP from the EPO Server. Also the sitelist including any agent handler or repository.
Windows Authentication: If the Agent is installed on the system it is absolutely unimportant if the system is a domain member or not. The whole Agent authentication with EPO is certificate based.
You only need an authentication on the endpoint if you want to deploy (push) the agent remotely.
If it just download the agent package and install it on the server, how does it automatically know to connect specifically to my ePO?
And when I say download the agent package - I mean going out to McAfee's Product Downloads page > inputting Grant Number > and downloading from there. And I missing something?
