The McAfee Agent must be installed on your endpoints prior to installing Privilege Management for Windows.

In McAfee ePO, go to System Tree settings to install the McAfee agent to your endpoints.

  1. Navigate to the System Tree > Systems tab and select the endpoint or group containing your endpoints. You may need to drill down to the location using the tree on the left.
  2. Click Actions on the bottom of the screen and select Agent > Run Client Task Now.

 

System Tree > McAfee Agent > Product Deployment > BT PM 5.4.x.x.xxx > Run Task Now

  1. Leave the Product as McAfee Agent.
  2. Select Product Deployment from the Task Type.
  3. Select your Privilege Management for Windows client from the Task Name list. This is the name of the client task that you created to deploy Privilege Management for Windows .
  4. Your list of endpoints is shown in the bottom panel. Click Run Task Now.
  5. The Running Client Task Status page appears. The Status bar may not show completed until the client computer has been restarted.

Once you have deployed the Privilege Management for Windows package, the endpoints automatically send a manifest of product information to the ePO server. This information is stored as a property of the client computer in the System Tree on the Products tab.
