EEPC 7 Disc encryption

Hi, we are just about to start rolling out EEPC 7 through EPO, we have noticed that there is no set time for how long it takes for the disc to start encrypting.  Is there anyway this could be speed up?

We have all policies in place, user added but can still take from 2 minutes to 2 hours to start the encryption. as we are doing this at factory end for the build we would like this to be a fast process.

Any help would be great!!!

Cheers

Hello,

Check https://community.mcafee.com/docs/DOC-4738 and lookup fast initial encryption which is designed with provisioning in mind.

HTH,

Re: EEPC 7 Disc encryption

Hi Thanks for the reply we have this working, but what we need is when the EEPC 7 is added to the machine with all policies and tasks, user imported, it can take hours for the encryption to kick of, as we are going to be deploying 10k machines, this is not a good way to role them out, as we need the encryption started before shipping.  Is there anyway we can make this happen faster. this can varey from 2 minutes to hours.

Cheers

On the same page, they link to this article regarding Offline Activation, which seems like it would speed up the process, since it does not rely on communicating with the EPO server.  https://community.mcafee.com/docs/DOC-4375
