Standalone Solidcore settings overruled by ePO

Hi All, unfortunately I am not too experienced with Application Control/Solidcore, and since I could not find anything helpful in manuals yet, here's a question for the community: We have devices "solidcored" locally (where required Apps and processes were "whitelisted" initially), they would work well as a standalone client. Once we install McAfee Agent and start to manage them via ePO, the initial Solidcore settings would be overruled and required Apps/processes would no longer be allowed to start - even though there are no specific Solidcore rules/Policies defined yet. Assuming this could be prevented by configuring such rules/policies via ePO, I was wondering if there is any simple way to just not interfere with the "standalone config" of Solidcore, once it's ePO managed? If using certain rules/policies would be mandatory, could one please share any best practices how to manage this? Thanks a lot!

Re: Standalone Solidcore settings overruled by ePO

Hi @User65198793 ,

Thank you for your post. If a system has been Solidified using a Standalone client then it should retain its inventory even after its managed.

Custom configurations like Trusted Directory, Updaters will be overridden by ePO policies when managed. These has to be configured manually on ePO.

Thanks

Re: Standalone Solidcore settings overruled by ePO

Thanks for your reply! We will need to double-check why these configurations (eg. Updaters) have been overruled by ePO, while there are only the "My default" AC Options and "McAfee Default" AC Rules Policies assigned, both with no specific settings which would prevent execution of whitelisted items. We have this setup on basically all Solidcored devices, it's just not working as expected on this single client.

Any suggestions how to verify? Any risk with disabling the default Policies for this client, to see how it would interfere with local config? Thx!

Re: Standalone Solidcore settings overruled by ePO

Hi @User65198793,

In a managed environment, we rely on ePO policies to centrally manage all Solidcore clients.

Hence, the changes that were made locally will be overruled by ePO policy.

For example, if myapp.exe was defined as Updater when its unmanaged. It has to be specified on ePO policy as well before we change over to managed. 

Also if the Solidcore CLI is recovered then policy is not enforced. Please ensure clients have the CLI locked down.

Thanks.
