    What are your experience with McAfee MOVE on non-persistent desktop? Can you share best practices? We are going with non-persistent VDI desktops. Non-persistent desktop or statless desktops are provisioned/re-provisioned upon logon/logout. So McAfee client and agent needs to get new policy/DAT files with each logon. So there is anticipated delays in login.

      Hello Preetam,

      Actually I am facing no issues with non-persistent, you just need to make sure that your ePO is clean from GUIDs that were replaced upon rebuilding the pools/catalogs or so.

    • doOdzZZ says:

      Also the policy/DAT are enforced on the offload scanner or the virtual scan appliance, so the clients are only reporting the scan events to the offload scanner or VSA and the latter does the job so you don’t have to worry about mass updates or policy pushing.

    Looking for some direction.

    We have MOVE rolled out and i want to set it up for our VDI. We are on non-persistent desktops – we are vm persona.

    i need some steps on what to do 1st? or maybe some clear steps.

    do i go to my golden image and load the frames package and then the multi platform client and remove the reg key. then do a recompose of that pool.

    • doOdzZZ says:

      Hello, since you mentioned recompose then you’re using VMware Horizon View and you’re on ESXi. So why are you using multiplatform when you can use the agent-less? Otherwise with multiplatform what you’ve mentioned in sufficient but you also need to install the offload scan servers and have their policies configured in ePO.

      For non-persistent desktops:

      1. Install the McAfee Agent.
      For unattended install:
      FramePkg.exe /install=agent /enableVDIMode /forceinstall /silent

      2. Install the Move AV Multi-Platform Client
      For unattended install:
      setup-win-amd64.exe” /S /v/qn
      Afterwards configure the SVA Manager Adddress from commandline:
      cd “C:\Program Files (x86)\McAfee\MOVE AV Client\”
      mvadm disable
      mvadm config set SVAManagerAddress=x.x.x.x
      mvadm config set SVAManagerPort=8080
      mvadm enable

      3. Remove some register settings to make the workstation independent.
      Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
      [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Network Associates\ePolicy Orchestrator\Agent]

      Desktop is now ready to deploy.
