You can manually install the agent on Macintosh and Linux systems.

Before you begin

The agent extension must be installed on McAfee ePO and appropriate agent packages added to the Master Repository before the agent can be installed onto a non-Windows system.


  1. Select MenuSystemsSystem Tree.
  2. Perform one of these actions to obtain the installation file:
    • Click New Systems, select Create and download agent installation package, choose the appropriate Agent version, click OK, and save the file that contains the file.
    • Copy the file directly from McAfee ePO. The path includes the name of the selected repository. For example, if checked in to the Current branch of the McAfee ePO software repository, the path of the required files is:
      Linux C:\Program Files\McAfee\ePolicy Orchestrator\DB\Software\Current\EPOAGENT3700LYNX\Install\0409
      Macintosh C:\Program Files\McAfee\ePolicy Orchestrator\DB\Software\Current\EPOAGENT3700MACX\Install\0409
  3. Open Terminal, then switch to the location where you copied the file.
  4. Run these commands, giving root credentials when requested:
    sudo chmod +x
    sudo ./ -i
