McAfee Endpoint Security for Linux (ENSL) 10.6.2
Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL) 8.0

For supported environments, see KB91326 (ENSL Firewall) and KB87073 (ENSL Threat Prevention).


Before you upgrade the operating system to RHEL 8.0 from previous versions, you must upgrade ENSL to version 10.6.2.

ENSL 10.6.2 adds support for RHEL 8.0. Any prior ENSL version is not supported on RHEL 8.0, so it is mandatory to upgrade ENSL to version 10.6.2 prior to the RHEL 8.0 operating system upgrade to avoid any instability issues.
