Environment

McAfee Active Response (MAR) 2.0.1
McAfee Data Exchange Layer (DXL) 3.1.x
McAfee ePolicy Orchestrator (ePO) 5.9

Summary

This article describes the process to deploy MAR when DXL is installed, using ePO 5.9. It covers the two most common install scenarios:
  • A fresh install where ePO 5.9 is already deployed
  • An upgrade to ePO 5.9 where a DXL version prior to 3.1 is installed.

Scenario 1 - Fresh install with deployed ePO 5.9:
  1. From the ePO Software Manager, download the DXL 3.1 bundle.
  2. Unzip the bundle to access the three extension installers.
  3. Install the extensions in this order:
    1. DXLBrokerMgmt
    2. DXLClient
    3. DXLClientMgmt
       
  4. From the ePO Software Manager, download the Active Response 2.0.1 bundle.
  5. Unzip the bundle to access component installers.
  6. Install these components, in this order:
    1. mar-client
    2. mar-server
    3. mar-license
    4. mar-ui
    5. mar-packages
    6. mar_help
    7. TIEServerMgmt
    8. mar-workspace
    9. tie-server-bundle
    10. CloudBridge
       
    MAR is now installed with DXL 3.1 and ePO 5.9.


Scenario 2 - Upgrade to ePO 5.9 where DXL version prior to 3.1 is installed:
  1. Upgrade ePO to version 5.9.

    For detailed installation steps, see section 4, Upgrading McAfee ePO, in the ePO 5.9.0 Installation Guide (PD26915).

    IMPORTANT: Upgrading to ePO 5.9 requires that you migrate from SHA-1 to SHA-2 certificates after installation. See KB87017 for details.
     
  2. From the ePO Software Manager, download the DXL 3.1 bundle.
  3. Unzip the bundle to access the three extension installers.
  4. Install the extensions in this order:
    1. DXLBrokerMgmt
    2. DXLClient
    3. DXLClientMgmt
       
  5. From the ePO Software Manager, download the Active Response 2.0.1 bundle.
  6. Unzip the bundle to access component installers.
  7. Install these components, in this order:
    1. mar-client
    2. mar-server
    3. mar-license
    4. mar-ui
    5. mar-packages
    6. mar_help
    7. TIEServerMgmt
    8. mar-workspace
    9. tie-server-bundle
    10. CloudBridge
       
  8. Regenerate certificates for the TIE Server (see KB88491) and the MAR Server (see the instructions in Known Issues KB88196) to migrate certificates to SHA-2.

    MAR is now installed with DXL 3.1 and ePO 5.9.
