McAfee Management of Native Encryption (MNE) 4.x, 3.x

Mac FileVault

For details of MNE supported environments, see KB79375.


During a silent installation of MNE to Mac FileVault system using a third-party deployment tool (such as Casper), users will be prompted at the end of the installation with a McAfee ePO Remote Provisioning Tool window, requesting the following three parameters:
  • ePO address
  • User name
  • Password
Simply closing the window without populating any of the fields allows the silent installation of MNE to succeed. This article provides the script  command to suppress this window to complete a full silent installation.


Add the following line to the third-party installation script to suppress launching of the McAfee ePO Remote Provisioning Tool:
touch "/tmp/.mcafee_provision.tmp"
