Including McAfee Agent on an image

You can install the agent on an image that is later deployed to multiple systems.

You must make sure the agent functions properly in this scenario.

No two agents can share the same GUID. The most common way McAfee Agent ends up with duplicate GUIDs is if it was installed on an image without having its GUID removed, and that image was deployed onto more than one system.

To make sure the GUIDs are not duplicated, run this command on the system image where McAfee Agent is installed and is used to deploy on more than one client systems.

maconfig -enforce -noguid

Important: Restart the McAfee Agent service on your system after running the maconfig -enforce -noguid command to generate a unique GUID.
