McAfee ENS Signature update is causing server RDP access to be blocked
When we encounter session log on timeouts for servers, a trace of earlier McAfee Endpoint Security Application Logs point to ?Update in Progress? but with NO corresponding ?Update Finished? entry.

You can see the update did not finish and there are a number of entries missing - it was at this point that user logins could not occur until a restart of the server has occurred.
Is there a reason that the McAfee ENS Signature update would:
- stall and not complete
- as a result, cause the server to not be able to be RDP'd into.
