It appears that this behavior is noticed in our Lab machines. I will update here as soon as I receive further info.

Re: MVT says firewall service is not running.

Any new info on this? After a recent update requiring a restart, My FW core service now says disabled and status is still blank. As before, both SC(16.0.5) & WAC detect the Mc FW as running, and now no more flag by MVT.

Everything seems fine, maybe I'm just being too paranoid.I just find it odd it's not automatic/started.

Thanks.

Hello All

This is now confirmed as a Design change and I will be sharing a Knowledge base article containing more information soon.

Thanks Selvan, but the weirdness continues. Now my FW service is back to manual and now WAC is flagging for no AV, FW, and spyware protection (No help from MVT.) I'm gonna nuke the site from orbit then do a clean install.

Probably a good idea that WAC issue has been around on startup on and off for ages. is/was this only on startup?

PK- No, this remained long after startup. I do know what you mean though when there was a delay sometimes before WAC saw it. My nuke and fresh install looks to have fixed it.

Re: MVT says firewall service is not running.

The old issue was WAC popped up at 2 mins after boot and disappeared at 5 minutes max after boot. It was a WAC bug we mods felt. I have not seen it happen recently.

Yeah, I hadn't seen that in awhile either. This was obviously different lasting 30 minutes ( & reboot) before I used the nuclear option.
