Moved from Encryption to App Control.
Please file a case with support. Can you give the exact Integrity Monitoring version you are using?
Integrity monitorig should ideally be not interfering with Windows updates.
Current version is :- 5.1.1 for integrity Monitoring..
Everytime we need to disable the solidcore on servers first then only we are able to install the patches.
As mentioned by Neelima, Integrity Monitoring does not block the application. Application Control would be doing it. You would either place teh Application COntrol in Update mode or add the Windows updater as Updater.
You need to configure Windows update policies present in the MAC extension to let Windows updates push in automatically. There should be no need to go into update mode everytime after that.
5.1.1 EOLs in Dec 2013. I would recommend that you consider moving to our latest 6.1.1 release. Please see MAC 5.1 EOL KB for more details.
