Re: observe mode

- well - what exactly is (not) working / blocked?

- where do you looking for that events on ePO? (there are several places to may look at).

- observe mode will NOT log/show observation events for files on network shares (e.g. logon-scripts etc or just applications run from a share)

There is a policy and an error that i have met when i use observe mode . shall it only log ?.  Am i right that It should't block?

or i misunderstand about the observe mode concept

Re: observe mode

hi,

I think to ban iexplore.exe is for testing only? (to see if it's blocked or reportet only)

So I guess you may not enabled observe mode at all? You'll have to create/run a client task of type SC: observe mode to enable/disable observe mode on the client. (the other way would be to enable the correspondig checkbox in the SC: enable task, so go to observe mode instead of just enable after the initial scan)

You can check the current status if you type "sadmin status" at the client/cmd

Re: observe mode

oh and there's a section in the solid core install guide (and product guide?) about observe mode.

AND as far as as I know this mode is only available in 6.1.x(?) - but you have 6.1.2 - so its ok

Re: observe mode

hm .... not sure ... but my best guess is that's maybe because you have a explicit "ban/block" rule for iexplore.exe - maybe that even blocks with observe mode on? (never tried that).

how about that: try to copy some .exe / program to that client (that haven't been there before / is not whitelistet) and try to run it. This shoud work but generate an observation - I think.
