I have machines I have to encrypt which is not on the domain, installed Endpoint encryption agent and Endpoint Encryption for PC. When I click on Encryption status it shows the following: Policy enforcement has failed. I tried diferent policies but still does the same thing. What is causing this? Please assist.
moved to more useful group.
Did you find anything interesting in the logs? If it's not a domain machine - my guess would be you don't have any users assigned (ALDU won't work for a non-domain machine)
Gave up and used another encryption instead. Can you please explain what you mean by any users assigned? How can I get around encrypting machine if its not in the domain in the future.
thousands of people do this just fine - there's nothing special you need to do.
As I say, mostly the error comes about because people use the ALDU option, but that only works for domain users - a machine which is not part of a domain won't have any domain users, and not assigning any users is one of the things the activation process checks for, and aborts on.
your log would have told you what the problem is I expect.
