We are having issues with our deployment of VSE 8.8. Several machines, including my test machine, have the On-Access Scanner displayed as "not running". All other VSE items are functioning properly. I've looked in the event logs for the system and the McAfee logs, and there is no hint that On-Access scanner has failed. Rebooting yields the same result. Reinstalling VSE 8.8 manually doesn't help.
Seems like VSE 8.8 didn't like the 8.7 Access Protection policy that was assigned to it. When I created a new policy and assigned it to the container, after a reboot and a Collect/Send, it enabled.
Consider this closed.
