Importing HP Protect Clients into DB

Hi folks,

the HP protect tools contain hard disk encryption provided by SafeBoot.
How can those encrypted clients be imported into a SafeBoot/ EE database?
I looked for a transfer database, but if there is one it's titled differently.

Anyone have an idea?

I don't think it is supported, as it is based off the same technology, but has since been modified by HP. Even if you could import it, there would likely be many machine/user attributes that do not match up.

Hi,

hmm, you have a point there.

My thoughts are, if we could get the client to communicate with the server, switching file groups in the client's properties could bring the software up to date.

As I remember, a standalone client would still communicate with its pseudo database or transfer database, so if we could persuade it to use the "real" database instead...
if HP wrote that part out of the software, though...

Decrypt/uninstall HP Protect, then install MEEPC. I think that is your only way around it, unless you want to reimage them without HP Protect.

sorry - it's totally not supported. If you want a centrally managed version, you need to remove the free HP product and install the McAfee version instead.
