Windows 2012 Server r2 McAfee permissions


  • I am unable to update McAfee on my servers. When the update uploads it rolls back incomplete.  I've tried uninstalling it to re-install the entire software suite but I keep getting permission errors even as I am the system administrator with full control. What can I do to help me update the software?

  • Hello,

    You have to contact McAfee support to get help. However I can give you some basic recommendations in your case. Check McAfee requirements and make sure that your servers match them. Usually, there is Update documentation containing requirements for update. Also you can check system/application logs of your servers to find out why the update is rolling back. Additionally you can check McAfee logging but it is subject of 3rd party software. I hope it helps and let me know how it goes.
