CWS Sync Error: Cloud Worload Security can't sync with vCenter

Hi there,

We connected McAfee CWS with our vCenter account by entering the root account and also the AD credentials, the connection seems to be succesful because we got the number, names plus few issues of the VMs of our ESXi server but the CWS can't Sync with the vCenter...

We can deploy ENS solutions without any problem from the CWS but the issues aren't updated (they stay in orange even if the issue was resolved).

The Server tasks log displays the following ERROR message: "Obfuscation error occured"

Please find Attached the screenshots to get a clear idea about this issue.


Best regards,

Hi @Hamza_Ennaciri 

Thanks for posting your question in the community form. 
Looks like the issue is logged with Endpoint Security (ENS) team, 

The error that you see in the CWS , We request you to log a Support request to CWS team to investigate the issue further. 
Make sure the necessary extension are available and tested before you raise the SR with us. 

Kind Regards,

Ravindra SK
