As I trudge my way through learning how MEE works I have a couple questions regarding how you guys set up user and machine groups. We're ultimately going to have over 200 laptops in the system and except for a few exceptions (LOL) the devices are used by a single person - VP, Board member, etc... Do I want to put all those people into groups and assign each of their laptops to them? From what I've observed McAfee downloads all users assigned to a given machine to the local database on the client. I'm not sure if I want 30 Board members defined as valid users on all 30 laptops - I hope I'm explaining this correctly. It seems my only alternative is to create a "group" consisting of one user and the EE Administrators then assign that user's laptop to it. I'll end up with a couple hundred groups that way and I can see myself as having to micro manage the server. Or is it really no big deal to clog up the client database with a few dozen users who will never access a laptop that doesn't belong to them? :confused:
I would create a post install script to execute after my client is installed and add the current logged in user to the laptop and a SB Administrator (not SBAdmin) by issuing sbadmcl commands. This will ease off the pain of adding all the 30 users into the same laptop, and even allowing other users to login to a laptop issued to another person.
