That was "SBADMCL.EXE" not "sbadmci.exe" user for 5.x (and 4.x) versions of this encryption product.
Version 6.x is different architecture and does not use scripting.
You may come up with your own wrapper (interactive) for 6.x deployments, but that custom work would need to be done with different tools.
6.x deployments are ePO based.
Ok, that's a bit of a shame, but thanks for the info. Does anyone know if there is a way to query the encryption status of the disk?
Which version? 5.x has EEM which displays machine object disk status.
In version 6.x there is query for that, in ePO server.
It's v6 we are using. Do you know if there is a way od querying the data in epo from the client, ie from a script?
There are no provisions to do that from client side.
But ePO database is SQL based, so in theory, you could script that.
Is there a recommended way of doing this when imaging a machine. We are trying to get the machine imaged and make sure it's encrypted before it goes out, with the minimum effort from the tech.
I believe the encryption status is in the registry in v6, in the McAfee hive - not sure exactly where though, but I'm sure this came up before....

The registry key is HKLM\Software\McAfee EndPoint Encryption\MfeEpePC\status
CryptState, State=Encrypted will indicate that it is encrypted.
We are imaging and encrypting without any user intervention, including logging on to the machine.
As part of our imaging process installs the eepc agent and engine, reboots the PC and leaves the computer at the logon prompt.
We have a regular job that querries a process to kick off on the device, its an inventory job. The credentials that job runs under are part of the eePC group assigned at the root of the tree. This "User" running the job remotely cause the encryption to kick off, then a querry of the reg key will let you know if it complete.
Thanks for posting the key Josh. One of the downsides of trying to work off an iPad is you cant look that kind of thing up. :-)
