I am currently working on a large future deployment of McAfee Device Encryption 5.2 to a variety laptop and desktop systems. Before attempting deployment, I am researching possible issues with each system type to determine possible problems with the various systems. Does anyone know of an issue list for the bottom table or know of any issues for each system type?
392 System Deployment List:
15 - Compaq 500 136 - Compaq 510 14 - Compaq 530 6 - Compaq 7100 1 - Compaq DC 7100 1 - Compaq Evo D500 1 - Compaq Evo D515 12 - IBM M52 15 - Lenovo M5 24 - Lenovo M57 3 - IBM T23 1 - IBM T30 7 - IBM T42 33 - IBM T43 33 - IBM T60 43 - IBM T61 1 - IBM IX40 19 - Lenovo M58 26 - Lenovo T400 1 - Lenovo X301
McAfee released MEE 5.2.1 recently. I would advise do a full fledged research on kc.mcafee.com for MEE issues and don't forget to check the release notes as well. Those are of great help.
Below are few notes (may include some resolved old issues) I make aware of my client prior to starting the project:
- Doesn’t support software based dynamic disks. Not tested in hardware RAID - HP notebook PCs with SATA hard disks (HP Compaq nw8440 Mobile Workstation, HP Compaq nc8430 Notebook PC, and HP Compaq nx8420 Notebook PC) - Check BIOS version - Run CHKDSK utility prior to encryption - Every machine should have a unique name - Minor restart issues with HIPS installed - Issue with SD cards on Dell D420 and D430 - NLG3500 card - LENOVO M57 machines hanging at boot before launching PBA - RIM Media Manager – EEFF incompatible - Core Ventura Image – EEFF incompatible - Live file system in Windows Vista – EEFF incompatible - Roxio CD/DVD
