Instructions for forwarding McAfee ePolicy Orchestrator (ePO) logs to your Log Management device

PREREQUISITES

McAfee ePolicy Orchestrator (ePO) 5.9.x, 5.3.x to Clone LOGM/SIEM

  • Make sure your ePO installation is version 5.9 or 5.3.2 (with Hotfix 1185471 applied).

 

Note: Without Hotfix 1185471 applied to ePO 5.3.2, you can complete the installation of the syslog server, but ePO will not be able to communicate with the syslog server.

Note: If you use ePO 5.3.2 with Hotfix 1185471 applied and you have additional agent handlers, an extra step is required to replace two files on the agent handler with the Hotfix versions taken from the ePO server. See KB87469 for details.
