Supermarket Belongs to the Community

Supermarket belongs to the community. While Chef has the responsibility to keep it running and be stewards of its functionality, what it does and how it works is driven by the community. The chef/supermarket repository will continue to be where development of the Supermarket application takes place. Come be part of shaping the direction of Supermarket by opening issues and pull requests or by joining us on the Chef Mailing List.

sbp_mcafee Cookbook

Build Status Cookbook Version

This cookbook will install the McAfee-client on Windows-systems


The cookbook depends on the windows cookbook, the client should be managed from an EPO server


default['mcafee']['agent']['package_name']      = 'McAfee Agent'
default['mcafee']['agent']['url']               = ''
default['mcafee']['virusscan']['package_name']  = 'McAfee VirusScan Enterprise'
default['mcafee']['virusscan']['url']           = ''

For the agent you'll need the FramePkg.exe and for the virusscan the Both files should be placed on your local repo and defined in the attributes.

The cookbook now also supports installation of McAfee Endpoint Security. In order to do so set the virusscan attributes like this:

default['mcafee']['virusscan']['package_name']      = 'McAfee Endpoint Security Platform'
default['mcafee']['virusscan']['options']           = 'ADDLOCAL="tp" /qn /nocontentupdate'
default['mcafee']['virusscan']['installer_exe']     = 'setupEP.exe'
