Self-Update - I found this thread and it's confirming my concern... EEPC does not support Encrypt on Demand for HDLP.
If I'm interpreting this thread correctly, then I won't get encrypt on demand unless I do one of two things...
Downgrade EEPC v6 to EEM for PC v5.2.4 with EEFF v3.2.5
I wait for the EEFF v4 (which incorporates EPO support) to be released, so I can keep all the management interfaces inside of EPO.
I guess it's time to talk to the rep.
you can run EEPC6 with EEFF 3.x at the same time - you don't have to link the two together (though it saves on a logon if you do so).
I wondered about this, but I read in the EEFF quick start guide (pages 5-6) that the EEM is a requirement.
Sequence of Events
The installation and setup of Endpoint Encryption is order-dependent and must be
done in the following sequence:
1. Install the Endpoint Encryption Manager.
2. Create the Object Database.
3. Create the Endpoint Encryption Communication Server application.
4. Add users to the system.
5. Create encryption keys.
6. Assign users and security administrators to encryption keys.
7. Create encryption policies.
8. Assign policies to users.
9. Create a Endpoint Encryption for Files and Folders installation set.
10. Install Endpoint Encryption for Files and Folders on a client machine.
11. Further Activities – Encrypting Folders and File Types.
12. Removing Endpoint Encryption for Files and Folders and Endpoint Encryption
So, how can I install EEFF v3.2.5 without the EEM 5.2.4 (or at least have it to where I'm using EEPC v6.0.1 in EPO 4.5 P2 and EEFF)? I'm assuming a hybrid configuration would require EEM to only manage EEFF and EPO to manage EEPC... thus causing the dual logins, is this correct?

yes - you can use EEM to manage EEFF, EEPC, or both. You don't need EEPC5 to use EEFF3.
You'll end up with EPO for EEPC6 and HDLP, and EEM for EEFF3 though.
Wow! Lots of acronyms!
