I followed the quickstart verbatium except for when creating the installation set. I chose offline vice online. I then Installed eepc.exe on a client and when it reboots it never starts encryption. I went back to the device group properties and verified that I checked full encryption for all drives. I want the installation to install without any network connectivity.....any suggestions?
Unless you have a really big reason to do offline installs. If a machine might occasionally connect to the network (or internet if your server is in the DMZ), use online. The downside to running completely offline is that you have to manually get the encryption key from the machine and you can't control the machine. Unless your laptop is going into the edge of the solar system, I really suggest an online install. It seems that people often misunderstand what the offline install is actually intended for.
Don't forget... any machine that encrypts without getting offline encryption key imported into the database, is not remotely recoverable. If the server doesn't have the keys, you can't issue codes. It also removes your ability to disable a machine after XX days of inactivity.
