    Cannot add user too EEPC users




      We are using EEPO 6.0,1 and I am having a problem with my own PC.

      I got encryption last week but cannot login with my own domain account.


      It gives error EE050002 unknown user.


      Adding my user account to the PC in ePO does not work. I can add other usesr and this works.

      I had EEPC on my old PC (windows XP) and this worked fine.


      Any Ideas where too look to solve this problem?

      I checked the logfile (MfeEpe.log) . I can see the other accounts but not my own account.

          "I checked the logfile (MfeEpe.log) . I can see the other accounts but not my own account."


          How is the entry on MfeEpe.log????? Can you copy and paste a line for us.


          The reason I am asking is that in my test environment I do not see a user account being added on MfeEpe.log. I am wondering how long it takes after user logs in to the machine for their account being added EEPC


          Mind you I am testing EEPC 6.1

            You have to enable logging first:

              Hi and thanks for that...


              only issue is that this is for debugging only and should be switched off after troubleshooting.


              I was hoping that we could see user in the log file (MfeEpe.log) so we did not need to give help desk/support  teams access to this area of ePO and add users to computers.

                How is your EE LDAP sync task configured? I have seen this issue in the past where your account is added, but not in the format you expect. By default, the task is configured to use the "user name" attribute of Active Directory. So you would have to type in your username in this format "joe user". You are probably used to logging in with the format "juser". If this is happening, you can fix it by modifying your EE LDAP sync task to use samaccountname for the first two fields instead of the "name" or "user name" attribute that is there by default. I have documented this recommendation and all other initial configuration recommendations here: https://community.mcafee.com/blogs/danlarson/2009/11/30/unofficial-quickstart-gu ide-for-mcafee-eepc-v6

                  Hi Larson


                  EE LDAP task settings configured:

                  username: samaccountname

                  display name: samaccountname

                  account control: useraccountcontrol

                  user certificate: blank


                  Your guide is good and I had already read it.

                    I have no direct access to the ePO console.

                    I will check this. But if this was true then it should  not be possible to add other accounts?


                    On the client my local profile was not added either. My domain account also has a local profile.

                      You can add users by either going:


                      Menu - Data Protection - Select System - Actions - Endpoint Encryption - Add Users


                      From the Product Policy enable "Add Local domain users" and whoever logs on to the machine will be added as an EEPC user on that system


                      What I wanted to see from the MfeEpe.log was something like:


                      ....adding user DOMAIN\username1

                      ....adding user DOMAIN\username2

                      etc so that th esupport team did not need access to this area of ePO to check whether specific user has been added to the system.
