Skipping Disks/volumes not encrypting

Jump to solution

We used EEPC 5.2.4 to encrypt a Windows 2003 server.  Only two out of the 3 partitioned drives are encrypting.  I'm getting a message in the status log,"skipping disk 1 because it has no space for disk information".  The partition has over 10TB of space available.   Any ideas?

Thanks

It must be a separate drive, since it's disk 1, not disk 0 ?

But the reason is that disks are required to have a partition gap, and are required to be basic, MBR formatted. No dynamic drives etc as per the release notes.

Well actually, there is Disk 0 (C:)(basic), Disk 1 (L:)(Dynamic), Disk 2 (V:)(basic), Disk 3 (K:)(basic)

Disk 0 encrypts, Disk 1 doesn't because it's Dynamic, Disk 2 doesn't encrypt and Disk 3 encrypts.  So it's actually Skipping disk 2.

curious indeed. How did you get a 10TB disk though? It can't be a real disk?

Same answer though - cheeck the disk info in WinTech, the disk must be missing a partition gap.

It's16TB.  Does EE have a limit on the size of partition it will encrypt?

16TB? I don't believe it - who makes a 16TB hard disk?!? (I want one!)

Mind you, all the info I'm passing to you is from my customer (offsite).  I won't be able to use Wintech because of this.

are they trying to encrypt a server? They do realise that although the OS is supported, encrypting servers is not - Anything like RAID, SAN, Server platforms etc is totally unsupported by McAfee...

They are encrypting a server.  I'm not sure what RAID configuration they have.  A while back I provided them with SB 4.2 and their were no issues.  I had them Safetech it before upgrading to EEPC 5.2.4 (this is an offline system).  After the server was decrypted, the customer replaced one of the drives (to 10+ TB).  I provided them with EEPC 5.2.4, they encrypted the server, but one of the basic drives didn't show in the status or in "getcryptstate".

Just curious, why you want to encrypt your server? is phsycal security not enough?
