We have seen this issue happening earlier too. This is because when power completly drains on the mac the system clock resets back to 01/01/2012. This results in EEMac thinking system not synced with ePO for long time as per the product setting policy for EEMac in ePO. Work around to this issue is
- Launch the EETech for Mac
- Perform Emergency Boot with authorizing the token and daily authorization code. This results in booting into the system with EEMac in recovery mode.
- Change the System Date to current date.
- Perform policy enforcement operation from ePO to re-sync with ePO so that EEMac changes its state from Recovery to Active back again.
That workaround is essentially what I have put in place for the users.
However its not really practical on a day to day basis to do a receovery every time they run out of battery.
I sense this is going to be one of those "Don't use MacBook Air" problems unless McAfee can add an option to allow long periods of not talking to the ePO...
