McAfee ePolicy Orchestrator (ePO) 5.x


When you access the Software Manager in ePO, the console displays the following error message:

ERROR: The Product Catalog has not been downloaded yet


When you run the default Download Software Product List server task, the server task log reports the following failure:
ERROR: Failed to download file C:\Progra~1\McAfee\EPOLIC~1\DB\licensed_products_list.xml.tmp. There was a connection error: Issue with the certificate (12175)


The certificate used by the Software Manager site has been changed.

Normally this process is transparent to users, because the new certificate is automatically downloaded and installed via Microsoft's Automatic Root Certificate Update system. (For details, see the "How Windows Updates Root Certificates" section in the following Microsoft support document: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/931125)

The certificate is not downloaded and installed when either:
  • The process fails
  • Automatic root certificate updating is disabled


To resolve this issue, manually install the certificate in the computer account on the ePO server.

Download the AddTrustExternalCARoot certificate from the following location, and save it to a temporary location:

  1. Click Start, Run, type MMC and click OK.

  8. Click OK in the Add/Remove Snap-in window.

  10. Right-click Certificates and click All Tasks, Import.
  11. Click Next.
  12. Browse to the AddTrustExternalCARoot.crt file that was downloaded earlier and click Open.
  13. Click Next.
  14. Click Next.
  15. Click Finish. A dialog window displays stating that the import was successful.
  16. Click OK.
Run the Download Software Product List task:
  1. Log on to the ePO console.
  2. Click Menu, Automation, Server Tasks.
  3. Locate the Download Software Product List task and click Run under the Actions column.
