I posted this yeaterday- it is no longer here???
I'll try to not write this so technically, as last time- maybe that was the problem?
hey guys I have um epp and like in the book thing it tells me I cant encrypt the machine that i have the manager installed
ok nevermind- that's not going to work is it.
In the EPP (Version 220.127.116.11) Quick Start Guide, page 14 where it describes CREATING AN EE Server Object, there is a NOTE near the bottom of the page that reads:
"NOTE: If you are using multiple machines for testing, leave all the Endpoint Encryption Server settings at their defaults. If you are testing Endpoint Encryption Manager and the Endpoint Encryption for PC client on one machine, YOU MUST CHANGE THE IP ADDRESS TO 127.0.0.1"
With that in mind, here is my testing configuration: I have 2 PCs. I want to encrypt the drives on BOTH. One must have the managment software on it. These are the ONLY 2 PC's in the entire system. They BOTH require encrypted drives and no other PCs exist. If I read the note, it is an EITHER-OR sentance. I know if I use (localhost ip) and try to create an install set, it won't work for the remote machine... and I can guess that the client software isn't smart enough to realize that it is also the server and it should not try to communicate with it's own IP, but insted automatically drop back to (localhost). Probably a security issue.
The best I can come up with, makes little sense to me. That I must create TWO separate servers within the managment software, whereas one will serve the remote PC and the other will serve "itself" -? .. then create install EXEs for EACH. That defeats all the cool central managment features so that can't be true.
On page 17 (SETUP MACHINE CONFIGURATION", it states:
"CAUTION: Do not select any encryption if you intend to install the client software on the same machine as the administration system!"
Is this intended to convey that you can NEVER encrype the drive that the managment server software is on, or does it mean that you must change the attribute AFTER the client installation, rather than as part of it?
