I really have not had very many problems with windows 7 and endpoint encryption, except for a laptop, that I'm currently working on.
I had imaged the laptop, with an image that has been working fine, I created the install set with 5.2.5 as usual,
Install set worked fine, the laptop is fully encrypted. Configured the laptop with the very same applications, that are used
on other windows 7 laptops, that users are currently useing. Installed Mcafee 8.8av and rebooted, when the laptop restarted, it never displayed the endpoint encryption screen. It stayed black for about 2 minutes, then an error message popped up:
Unable to write data store object attribute.
Does anyone have any idea what this could be? It's not like I can bypass endpoint, as I cannot get to the login.
it means your SBFS is corrupt - do an eBoot, or decrypt the machine with xTech.
You should also consider moving up to a newer version which has features to mitigate this issue.
I also wanted to mention one of the differences between the new laptops being used and the old ones..........
Seems to happen more to the new ones, they do have larger hard drives (500GB), compared to the previous model (160gb), it takes about 5-6 hours to encrypt. I've even tried onboxing another identical machine, but the same thing happens......... Apparently our "safeboot god" has not released anything past 5.2.5, so I guess I'm stuck for now.
