Re: McAfee Drive Encryption "EE050018" message

Hi Denis,

The message is specific to MDE, I had a quick word with the guys in that team and that asked for more detail, a screen shot or log showing the massage in context.

Regards the products (ePO being my main interest) what are the exact version you have please?

There is a chance that there is a fix already available ion the updated version(s)

Drive Encryption 7.x Error Codes and Messages
Technical Articles ID: KB79785

The MDE guys gave me an update on the versions, they report a need to have 7.2.7 build 8 in use here.
