Enable the system transfer feature

Enabling system transfer must be performed using the web-API. An example python script to illustrate how this could be accomplished is included later in this document and is available via Software Manager. This section lists the two new web-APIs included to enable this feature.

Table 1: eeadmin.listRegisteredServers Lists servers that have been registered with McAfee ePO, (optionally) filtered by type. Returns a dictionary containing the ID, type, and registered server name for each of the current registered servers.
Parameter Description Required
serverType Allows for filtering of the registered server types. Known values:
  • ldap
  • McAfee ePO

Omit this parameter to list all registered servers.

No
Table 2: eeadmin.enableSystemTransfer Enables/disables system transfer capability. Returns a dictionary that contains the values that have been saved. Omit all parameters to make no changes and list current settings.
Parameter Description Required
enable True if the feature should be enabled; false if the feature should be disabled.

Default is false.

No
maxUsers Determines the maximum number of users that will be assigned in the destination ePO server (1-200).

Default is 10.

Warning: Increasing this value could negatively impact the performance of McAfee ePO and AD Servers.
No
searchOrder Determines the LDAP search order in the form of a comma separated list of registered server IDs.

A search order is mandatory where there is more than one registered LDAP server. The search order allows Drive Encryption to match a user that was assigned in the source server context to a user in the destination server context in a controlled preferential order.

Default is none.

Note: If more than one LDAP server is registered in the destination McAfee ePO and no search order has been defined, system transfers will fail.
