while i haven't deployed 8.7 myself using EPO, i can't imagine this wouldn't be manageable under EPO or via MID.
i know in 8.7 you can change the settings so that the user has the option of delaying a scan (possibly stopping - i don't recall). you can set how long the delay is, and how many times the user can delay the scan before it will start automatically.
on the surface this feature seems very good to me, so avoid having scans kick off during presentations or the like.
now if they can just get their scan to run when idle, and stop when the user returns, that would be great. right now it can only start when idle, and doesn't give a damn if the user returns halfway into the scan.
Yeah, i have tested this quite thoroughly and setup a deferred scan, which works. it actually defers the scan and returns to scan after a hour or so ( whatever time you put it ), but the user still has the option to stop the entire scan process.
Even Mcafee themselves remoted my machine and saw it, and they just mentioned, it is the way it was designed to allow users to stop the scan whatever time they feel.
I hope someone can test this and see if i am missing something here.
defer scan works
access protection settings are used to prevent users from stopping and/or disabling features/scans/services.
It works the same as it did with VSE 8.5i.
There is nothing new/wrong here.
Can the Scan run in the background invisable to the end user?
See reply in other thread you posted the SAME question wink
