Are you saying that your server is encrypted with SafeBoot Device Encryption for PCs (SBDE), or that your (unencrypted) server simply becomes unbootable after moving it?
if it's the latter, this would really be a question for Microsoft?
Looks like our server is encrypted with the Client side software (it was setup by exernal contractors!) Can this be removed then? :confused:
sure - you could remove it if you want, there are lots of caveats though.
can I ask how you intend to recover the machine if you forget the password, seeing as the recovery information is on the server that it itself is encrypted?
the client side software is on there but neither of the drives are encrypted and the status just keeps polling Error connecting to database (5c00000f):Failed to connect to remote computer?!
I think you need to get your contractors back in to sort it out. :-)
is the boot code enabled? If so what happens when you restart the server - does someone have to log it in each time?
no we dont have to login when the server is restarted, so I guess the boot code isn't enabled?
We're currently running v5.1.5 if I upgrade the server to the latest will this give me the option to remove the client app?
As long as the drive is not encrypted ..... do this:
open command prompt and navigate to the C:\Program Files\SBADMIN folder
C:\Program Files\McAfee\Endpoint Encryption Manager folder
Once there type the following:
You will need to have local admin rights on the box to do this.
You then need to find out how this got installed on the server.... if its by ePO you will need to exclude your server from the push.
if you do the first, you'll uninstall your admin console and thus loose the ability to recover anyone.
I would get your contractors back involved to sort this out.
DOH! I misread... i thought this was just on a normal server not your MEE server. Good catch S. I need some more coffee! happy
