I have read your post.
Please let us know the version of the McAfee SaaS Endpoint protection that you are currently running on the Server.
Please let us know if this is happening only on the servers/computers running the Windows 2000 SP4 Server Operating system.
Please let us know the above details and we shall help you further.
Pritish / Rengaraj,
Thanks for taking the time to reply.
I couldn't say if any of the other machines were suffering from this as this is the only one that is doing this type of function. We would have no idea of what other machines were doing in terms of disk queues etc as they a dormant at this time and are users machines (we rely on users complaining to notify us there is a problem on their work stations).
5.0.0 Patch 6
I guess the question still exists for all machines I am going to have to support though, i.e.:
does mcShield.exe CPU usage mean it could be On Access / Scheduled / On demand?
How can you tell what files have been scanned / what it currently scanning (is there a flag to write logs?).
I have read your reply.
Please be informed that McAfee has now released the new v5.2 of the McAfee SaaS Endpoint protection.
All the older 5.0 versions will be upgraded to v5.2 in a week or two.
This new v5.2 does not support Windows 2000 Sever versions as McAfee has withdrawn support for the Windows 2000 operating systems.
Eventhough you have the 5.0 with patch 6.00 the new DAT updates that you get will support the Windows 2000 OS.
This is because, even Microsoft has withdrawn support for the Windows 2000 OS.
Please upgrade your Operating System to have the continued protection.
