Clicking on this will switch to the Server Tasks Log screen and show you whether its completed or failed, in most cases it will complete ok but in the rare case it fails click on Edit and make sure it is correctly configured to synchronise with all groups. If you are unsure please contact Ergo Technical Support who can double check this for you, making sure you have your support agreement number with you.
Once this is done you can click on System Tree and you should see the new workstation and it should be unmanaged under Systems.
To install the agent and deploy the antivirus you will need to Tick the box next to the workstation name and then click on Actions at the bottom of the screen. This will open a menu from here select Agent and then Deploy Agents.

It may take a few minutes before the agents installs but it will appear in the task bar, once this is there it will pull down the antivirus program.

Another way to manually deploy mcafee is to create an agent install package which you can run on any workstation as and when needed. The only thing that you will need to do to is move the workstation to the correct set from within mcafee.
To create this click on System Tree and then System Tree Actions (bottom left corner). You will see an option for New Systems click on this.

Select the option to Create and Download Agent Installation Package leave everything else on default except the use credentials make sure it is unticked. Click on OK, then click on the Download File link named Framepkg and save it onto the D drive on the server.
On the workstation that needs adding clicking on the Start button and then Run. Type in \\servername\d$ where server name is the name of the server usually f2t-server or server.
Double click on the framepkg file to launch the agent install once this is completed it will pull the antivirus down.
The workstation should now also appear in System Tree and may need moving to the correct set by ticking the tick box next to its name and then from the Actions Menu - Directory Management and Move Systems. You should be able to move it to the required set from here.
