Drive Encryption will not activate on Windows 11 system

Hi McAfee Encryption team. I have two Windows 11 systems that will not activate their encryption. I tried removing and reinstalling DE, using PRT to remove everything from the system and start over with a slightly older agent version and only DE installed afterwards, and still to no avail. The system was rebooted after DE installed, but we see Activation failure events in ePO. Please find attached the EPE log file, I am getting the MER from the system (CZ01W982) now also and will upload it to the ticket once I have it. Please review the attached files and let me know if I am doing something wrong with this system. Thanks, Adam

Re: Drive Encryption will not activate on Windows 11 system

I'm not seeing any attachments here.  If you want to try attachment again, we can certainly take a look at it here but I am not inclined to recommend attaching environment data here.  If you do proceed though, I would advise scrubbing the log file to remove anything you may not want to be seen by any/all in a forum like user names, domain names, etc.  If you have opened an SR (sounds like you may have), we'll be taking a look at it and correspondence will be done more specifically in that SR.
