Workaround for KB87371: Unable to save a process or file path in the On-Access Scan policy

Hi,

just came across that problem and after searching what the problem may is, I found that KB entry. (We had done a fresh 5.3.2 install and migrate/transfer agents from the old ePO – so I first though maybe it was my fault)

As I had to add some changes quickly and cannot wait for the hotfix, I did the following workaround:

  • Export Policies (VSE e.g.).
  • Open that saved xml file and look for the right section –e .g. (or just look for some known process entry)

<Section name="Server_Trusted-Application">

<Setting name="dwApplicationCount" value="2"/>

<Setting name="szApplicationItem_0" value="some.exe"/>

<Setting name="szApplicationItem_1" value="other.exe"/>

</Section>

Add a new

<Setting name="szApplicationItem_X" value="Y"/>

Replace X with the next number, depending on how much entries do you have. Replace Y with process name.

Don’t forget to increase value of dwApplicationCount to number of entries (see example above. Entries are starting from 0, 1, … but total number is 2)

  • Save file
  • Import polices (only select that policy you have modified)
