Changing a policy enforcement

Jump to solution


Hello

I have moved two computers from my Workstation group to Servers in the System Tree. I have made a change in the My Default policy, so that the servers will not block mass mailings (I need to do this so that the RAID card alerts will go out). Originally the two computers were in the Workstation group, which prevented mass mailings. How do I update the policy on the two computers now that I have moved them from one group to the other? I have already gone on each computer into the McAfee Agent Monitor, Checked New Policies and Enforce Policies, but the Block Mass Mailings keeps getting reapplied.

Also, how would I find out what part of the Adaptec Storage Manager executable needs to be in the list of allowed processes?

Thanks

McAfee Access Protection is divided into 2 section workstation and servers where if you had allowed mass mailing for server section and apply it to workstation than it will still block. I'll suggest you to update same settings in workstation section and do a check new policies under McAfee Agent monitor.

That solved the problem. Strange that you cannot make it different for each group.

You can make new tags or edit existing tags if you want to apply a policy to all groups but you will have to follow ansarias guide above still to change the settings if you create a new tag.

Menu - Systems Section - Tag Catalog.

I personally haven't touched the pre-configured Server and Workstation tags but it looks straight forward in changing them. I have created new tags for testing purposes.

Yes, you can make different policy for each group moreover you can apply particular policy to a single system also only you have to break the inheritance in system tree.
