ePO not enforcing it's policies

Hey guys,

I'm new to McAfee ePO, but as part of the ongoing security compliance we need to block off certain websites on site advisor, we entered the the websites on the prohibit lists and pushed it to all users, but we can still access al the websites.

Any advice would be useful,

Hi randal.durham, don't forget that you need to send a wakeup call to these agents if you want to see some results at the moment you cange your SAE policy.

You can also experience this issue if the web browser is not one of the supported ones or if it's loading the web page from its caché

Thank you, I did wake up, checked the server task log and it was agent wake-up was complete, I am also using IE9 which looks to be the only browser supported.

Any other ideas, thanks

I am no SiteAdvisor expert, but you could check  if one of these KBs apply in your case:

Also,  what version of SiteAdvisor and ePO do you have?
