Managed endpoints are not receiving Application Control policy

Hi all,

I currently am having issues with updating the application control policy for one of my managed endpoints. I added a process to the Updaters tab by using its SHA value, and sent an agent wake-up call to the endpoint so that it could receive the new policy update. However, the endpoint is still generating Application Control execution denied events by the updater process. 

How can I verify that the policy is being applied to the endpoint? 

I also tried adding an updater via 'sadmin udpaters add -d <executable name>' command, and it shows up when I run 'sadmin updaters list'. However, there is no effect, and I'm still getting Application Control execution denied events for that updater as well.

Re: Managed endpoints are not receiving Application Control policy

Hello @karentv1 . Thank you for posting in McAfee Community. Could you please run the command below  Sadmin config set CksumCalcMode=0 and then reboot or relaunch the process and check whether it works.

Re: Managed endpoints are not receiving Application Control policy

@Sivakumar1 I ran the command and then relaunched the process, but it is still getting "File Write Denied" application control events under that process. Is there a way to turn off file write-protection on the endpoint? I only want events about file execution denied; I don't want to have write-protection enabled.
