I have been performing R&D from long time on this issue. But, did not achieve any success. VirusScan OAS is in disabled state for many machines. And when I unlock the VSE console and try to enable OAS, it does not gets enabled. Did everything from stopping services to disabling Access Protection. Nothing works except for a VSE reinstallation which I the last option I wanna do.
Someone, please suggest ways to remediate this issue. What might cause this weird behavior?
Thanks in advance!
Can you check the value of a registry key on one of these systems?
Try to redeploy VSE from ePO console on some machines and add below command under command line in deployment task.
REINSTALLMODE=amus /q (Install both program and registry files)
Resolved for me
I was facing similar issue on windows 2003 server. I removed VSE 8.8 and redployed. but getting OAS disabled.Aslo tried deleting McShied service.but no luck. Finally, I modiefied registry entry as below
this enabled the ON Access Scanner in windows 2003 server.
You could run the McAfee getsusp and see if the Machine could be infected.
