    "Set Encdpoint Encryption password to windows password" & Windows 7.

    TK45

      Hi,

       

      To be honest, it seems that the question I have is NOT a McAfee BUT Microsoft, however, I would like to know it.

       

      I tested as below on Windows 7 machine.

       

      1. Install EEPC to the PC joined Domain(Active Directory) with followinf policies enabled.

          - Require login to Endpoint Encryption

          - Attempt automatic Windows logon

          - Automatically logon as pre-boot user

          - Set Encdpoint Encryption password to windows password. 

      It means both EEPC user and Windows user are set to match as a password "AAA" and SSO is enabled.

      2. Change the domain user password in Active Directory server to "BBB" from "AAA".

      3. Reboot client PC.

      4. Pass PBA with password "AAA" still.

      5. Somehow, I can logon by SSO... (In fact, logon with "AAA" password although I change it to "BBB" at Step.2)

      6. Reboot PC.

      7. Pass PBA with password "AAA" still.

      8. Fail to SSO, then enter "BBB" as Windows password

      9. Reboot client PC

      10. Pass PBA with password "BBB", and logon by SSO to Windows.

       

      So, I feel strange situation because I think it should fail to SSO at Step.5, but actually, I can logon by SSO...

      That is the design of windows domain environment??

       

      Regards,
