Drive Encryption - Is there an easy was to determine if computer has an Opal SSD installed?

Jump to solution

Our environment has a mixed variety of machines. Some with regular drives, some with SSD's and some with SSD's that are Opal Drives. I've recently deployed encryption to a computer with an opal drive which obviously skips McAfee having to encrypt the drive since Opal Drives are already encrypted (Which I'll have separate instructions on doing machines with Opal Drives now). Instead of having to go into the device manager, looking up the disk drive name and googling to see if its using Opal, is there an easier way to determine this?

There isn't an easy way but there is a way to report the drive model number into ePO. You can use the McAfee Agent custom props to report on any property that you require. From McAfee agent 5.0, this is covered in the MA Product Guide on page 42 (PD25187). You will need to script this in some why and use the wmic command to pull the drive model number:

    wmic diskdrive get model

In your script you will want to first pull the model number, parse the info, and then inject it using command in the product guide:

    FrmInst.exe /CustomProps1="Custom Property 1" /CustomProps2="Property 2" /CustomProps3="Property 3" /CustomProps4="Property 4"

You can then setup custom tagging rules to tag systems with supported OPAL drives listed in KB81136.
