Change from managed to unmanaged mode on non-Windows platforms

Changing McAfee Agent mode on non-Windows systems must be done manually.


  1. On the target system, locate the maconfig file in the binaries subfolder of the ma folder.
    Linux /opt/McAfee/agent/bin
    Macintosh /Library/McAfee/agent/bin
  2. Open a terminal window on the target system.
  3. Run the following command:
    /opt/McAfee/agent/maconfig -provision -unmanaged -nostart
    Note: The optional -nostart parameter indicates that McAfee Agent does not restart after changing mode.
