We have HIPS Patch 2 deployed on Windows XP systems with VSE 8.5i running on them. We just started testing with 8.7i and found as soon as 8.7i was installed, the Host IPS portion of HIPS stopped working. It says HOST IPS is disabled on the bottom left even though the option is checked and the policy in ePO is also set to be enabled.
Note this only happens when upgrading virusscan to 8.7i. It works fine with 8.5i. Are there any new features in 8.7i that would take over the Host IPS portion and not let it function correctly?
