    Issues with HelpAssistant and SSO

      Hello everyone, this is my first post here so I hope I get this right...


      This only happens about once or twice a month to random users, which isn't a "big"

      deal right now, because we only have about 150 encrypted laptops.

      However, we are about to start rolling this out and will end up with a little over 1200

      encrypted laptops, so I can see it being a real issue down the road.


      Here's my scenario:


      A User calls helpdesk to get help with an Outlook issue; something non-McAfee related.

      The Helpdesk tech then uses remote assistance to assist the user and fixes their issue.

      However, the next day, or next week, when the user does a reboot, they receive an authentication error.

      The call gets escalated to Level 2 (me) and when I check the user’s SSO details in the Encryption Manager,

      I find their username is HELPASSISTANT.  Now, I can resolve the issue by entering their correct username and

      resetting their token, but WHY does this happen and HOW can we prevent it?


      Any thoughts, recommendations, appreciated.
