I think the question is already in the subject.
In fact in the company when we re-image our computers (Windows 7), we have a fully automated process that install Windows 7 (unattend,...) without asking any questions to the user.
Now we would like to detect by any way if the computer is encrypted. If yes, we would like to stop the process and ask a question : for example: do you want to recover the data...
Is there any way to detect that in WinPE ?
not sure what version if youre using 5.X you can use sbadmc as mentiond on KB71222 https://kc.mcafee.com/corporate/index?page=content&id=KB71222&pmv=print
Thanks all for your reply. We have EEPC 5.2.12
I have now copied the 3 files in my WinPE image, but nothing happen even with this:
sbadmcl -command:getcryptstate <drive>:\encryptstate.txt
Question: does the dll needs a registration ? because an error is raised with resgvr32 (I suppose it is not allowed to do that in WinPE ...).
Should I export the registry on my PC, and import the reg when building the new WIM ?
No. You don't need to register if you are using the exe, only for com.
But you need an entire client installed, along with the eepc drivers etc - those three files alone are not enough.
Sorry to get back so late.
Is there a way and is it possible to install all the client in WinPE ?
Can I just copy all the installed files from a client into the WINPE image ?Message was edited by: Smartland on 10/07/12 10:08:36 CEST
yes, but you need the drivers installed properly - just build a WinTech PE image, that should be enough to support the API - if not just add a full client directory to the mix.
I have created a WinPE 3.x disk and installed the Safeboot (220.127.116.11) drivers and client files. When I run the -GetCryptState it simply returns:
McAfee Endpoint Encryption Scripting Tool
Copyright © 1991-2010 McAfee, Inc. All Rights Reserved.
Executable version : 18.104.22.168
DLL version : 22.214.171.124
Command = GetCryptState
ResultCode = 0x00000000
ResultDescription = The operation completed successfully.
It doesn't actually tell me the crypt state.
I want to detect if a disk is encrypted by 5.x. If it is encrypted I want to authorize/authenticate the disk using the SB user / password encrypted in my WinPE disk. How can I accomplish this using SBADMCL.EXE instead of the manual WinTech process to Authorize & Authenticate?Message was edited by: levistevens on 7/24/12 10:34:09 PM CDT
Since you already run wintech cd why not launch wintech and check disk information?
"Disk Information" doesn't require authorize code & authenticate.. Just press cancel when authorize box apear then go to disk information..
You cant I'm afriad - there is no command line tool to authenticate and mount a drive - you can only do that from the WinTech GUI.
Now I understand more what you're trying to do - I don't think it's going to be possible. You need to either boot through the pre-boot auth screen, or use WinTech to get access to the data on the drive - the latter is not possible through a script.
Maybe discuss with your platinum support team and see if you can raise a product enhacement request?
