This may have already been asked but I can't find it. We notice that HIPS 8.0 is blocking Windows Group Policy on our servers in some cases. Is there a way to make a blanket exclusion to allow any changes that Group Policy tries to make?
What process is making changes that HIPS is detecting and blocking? You'll probably need to create an IPS exception for all signatures and that application.
I was afraid of that. I didn't know if there was a way to make Group Policy trusted across the board so that it would just allow all changes made by gpo.
I would second what Kary said, you would need to find a process that was making the change on behalf of Group Policy.
I have an example like this in my org where we recently pushed a registry change via GP to all endpoints with WScript.exe. There is most likely a system event log that will show where a change. I actually found this out through a VSE threat event tell ing me that an Access Protection policy that I had in report mode only was violated. When I asked about it I learned that it was done via GP.
