Configure the quarantine directory

Specify the directory where you want to store the quarantined items.


  1. Log on to the system as a user with administrator rights.
  2. Change directory to the /bin directory.
    cd /opt/McAfee/ens/tp/bin
  3. Run the command.
    ./mfetpcli --setquarantinefolder /directory_path/
    You must specify the absolute path directory.
    Note: You can't configure the existing directories to quarantine the detections. You should specify a new directory name.
    For example,./mfetpcli --setquarantinefolder /root/ensl_quarantinedir/
    The default quarantine directory for standalone systems is /Quarantine. For systems managed by McAfee ePO, you can use the Common Policy to configure the quarantine directory. The default directory configured in the Common Policy is /quarantine/.
