Upgrading to McAfee Agent 5.0.0 is not supported on Linux operating systems with Application Control installed
Technical Articles ID:   KB83177
Last Modified:  4/19/2016


McAfee Agent (MA) 5.0.0
McAfee Application Control (MAC) 6.1
McAfee Change Control (MCC) 6.1



During an upgrade to MA 5.0.0, the older version of MA is deleted and replaced with MA 5.0.0. On Linux operating systems with MAC installed, the deletion of the older MA version is prevented. This blocks MAC services from starting up.


This issue is resolved in MAC 6.1.7. 

McAfee product software, upgrades, maintenance releases, and documentation are available from the Product Downloads site at: http://www.mcafee.com/us/downloads/downloads.aspx.

NOTE: You need a valid Grant Number for access. KB56057 provides additional information about the Product Downloads site, and alternate locations for some products.


For versions earlier than 6.1.7, a fresh installation of MA 5.0.0 is supported with MAC.
