Make sure that the Gold image does not contain EEPC in active mode. Also, that the GUID for MA is removed.
Reiner thanks for the response.
Can you please clarify what you mean by "make sure the Gold image does not contain EEPC in active mode"?
How do I do that?
After installing Agent and Package (and Reboot) the System State is 'Inactive' (check McAfee Agent System Tray > Quick Settings > Show Endpoint Encryption Status). Once it receives the relevant policy with 'Enable Policy' checked (EEPC Policy > General Tab) it will try to activate (assuming other things are set e.g. ALDU enabled or users assigned, policies enforced). If successful it would switch to 'Active' as shown below. .
