Apologies if this is an obvious answer, my brain does not appear to be working at present. I am carrying out some server work that involves disabling VSE access protection. The issue is that the agent keeps on enforcing the policies. Without accessing the ePO server (ie to temporarily disable AP in the VSE policy or to temporarily disable policy enforcement), I have disabled Access Protection in the VSE console, and then stopped the framework service.
The problem is that the framework service keeps on restarting, and I am sure that this is not meant to be the case. Am I going mad? Have I forgotten something very simple? What could be causing the service to restart, if it is not started again manually? The restart times and the period between the stop and start do not appear to follow any pattern.
