RE: "Virus scan on-access scan is disabled" - ????
Thanks for the tip. It was unchecked as you said. I checked the box, woke up the servers, and checked the services and behold - they were no longer paused. I had checked this setting before in ePO - apparently I must have looked at the Workstation version instead of the Server version - that's hard to do!
This is what i tried to enable On Access-Scan. Go to VirusScan Console > help > repair installation. In the new opened window check the 2 check box and click ok. This will reset mcafee settings and sdat file. Update the mcafee. Enjoy......
Re: "Virus scan on-access scan is disabled" - ????
I had a similar problem, the Total Protection Service UI listed on-access scan as disabled. The service was not started up after reboot either.
I found a manual work-around that I could see as scriptable, but here is what I found:
If you disable ALL McAfee services in the Services console.
Re-enable the services in this order:
McAfee Personal Firewall Service
McAfee Virus and Spyware protection
McAfee SiteAdvisor Enterprise
Voila, it works.
Simply starting the McShield service was NOT enough, I had to disable ALL and re-enable in a specific order.
The frustrating thing about this error is that the "Fix Now" button, as well as the "Enable" buttons, are all disabled in the UI, so it seems like a hopeless problem. Luckily I found a fix, but this is a big bug that McAfee needs to look at asap.
