Summary

This article details how to check in Host IPS 8.0 content manually to the ePO 5.x server repository when an Internet connection is unavailable to download the content from a McAfee-managed repository (NAIHttp or NAIFtp site).

Solution

If the ePO server does not have an Internet connection available to run a Pull task to download the Host IPS content, do the following to manually check in Host IPS content into the ePO repository:
  1. Manually download the Host IPS content files.
  2. Transfer them to the ePO server via another medium. 
  3. Manually check in the content using one of the following options:

    Copy via the McAfee FTP repository:
    1. Create a folder on the desktop called HIPSCONTENT.
    2. Copy the contents of ftp://ftp.nai.com/commonupdater/Current/ENCPTCNT6000/DAT/0000/ to the HIPSCONTENT directory on the desktop.
    3. Copy the ftp://ftp.nai.com/commonupdater/Current/ENCPTCNT6000/EceptCntDet.mcs file to the HIPSCONTENT directory on the desktop.
    4. Open the HIPSCONTENT directory on your desktop, select all files, and zip them.
       
      NOTE:
      Do not zip the HIPSCONTENT directory on the desktop directly.
        
    5. Check in the HIPSCONTENT.zip file that was just created.
     

    Copy via McAfee HTTP repository:
    1. Create a folder on the desktop called HIPSCONTENT.
    2. Copy all the files from http://update.nai.com/Products/commonupdater/current/encptcnt6000/dat/0000/ to the HIPSCONTENT directory on the desktop.
    3. Copy the file http://update.nai.com/Products/commonupdater/current/encptcnt6000/EceptCntDet.mcs to the HIPSCONTENT directory on your desktop.
    4. Open the HIPSCONTENT directory on your desktop, select all files, and zip them.
       
      NOTE:
      Do not zip the HIPSCONTENT directory on the desktop directly.
