I have an issue with Macbook Air machines (2011 models running 10.7.4) where if the power runs down on the machine and it is left for a while the time/date will reset back to 01/01/2012.
From my understanding this is due to Apple changing (or not using) a CMOS battery to retain the time/date on Air machines.
This time reset results in the EE software thinking the machine has not contected ePO in too long and requiring a machine recovery.
Is there any way around this issue, or has anyone else encountered the same thing and found a workaround?
We have seen this issue happening earlier too. This is because when power completly drains on the mac the system clock resets back to 01/01/2012. This results in EEMac thinking system not synced with ePO for long time as per the product setting policy for EEMac in ePO. Work around to this issue is
That workaround is essentially what I have put in place for the users.
However its not really practical on a day to day basis to do a receovery every time they run out of battery.
I sense this is going to be one of those "Don't use MacBook Air" problems unless McAfee can add an option to allow long periods of not talking to the ePO...
