I have tried to tag these systems with Uninstall/Reinstalls to fix the issue, and it worked on two machines, but there is still at least 20 machines that are not registering properly!
I've tried this several different times over the course of a week now, giving plenty of time (at least 24 hours) between the uninstall and reinstall but the issue still remains in e PO.
If you have more then 3 to 5 machines being affected by this issue, I would recommend doing this in very small batches, as it can affect network performance significantly.
Typically, I have to do 3 to 4 cycles of all of the above steps to get the machines to react properly.
I have remoted into these machines manually and checked the version numbers for these Products (VSE, Policy Auditor, HIPS, DLP, etc.) and they all list the most up-to-date information for those products, (example, HIPS 18.104.22.1689).
I then open up the Mc Afee Agent Status Monitor Console and select "Collect and Send Props", "Send Events", "Check New Policies" and "Enforce Policies" to ensure that the agent is able to communicate with the e PO server without throwing out any error messages. When I log back into e PO and check the computer name in System Tree, the computer still shows an outdated version of that product number (HIPS 22.214.171.1241, for example).
This is because I had to perform very specific actions to get it to work (monitoring the agent closely to ensure it didn't throw out error messages or fail to communicate entirely after a short while).
Mc Afee similar to Symantec uses SMB ports to deploy agents to domain computers.
Mc Afee e Policy Orchestrator Mc Afee e Policy Orchestrator server must open Computer browser service in order to enumerate the domain/workgroup computers, without turning on this service administrator has to install the agents onto each and every domain/workgroup computers.
obviously the still wanted the latest updates but they wanted the updates to be silent.
Within this category you should have an update task, select edit and you will see the following section.
