    7.x Programmatically save machine information?


      Has anyone found or know of a way to programmatically save the machine information from the Tray Icon > Quick Settings > Show Endpoint Encryption Status? (Button highlighted in red below)


      Export Machine Info.png


      I want to be able to export this information and display a timestamp for a user without making the user or technician pull the timestamp out of the exported log and paste into a converter.


      Any information is appricaited, Thanks!

          Hi there,


          This functionality was intended for troubleshooting, rather than any form of scripting. May I ask what your use case is, regarding the timestamp? Maybe there's a better way of doing what you need?


          Many thanks,

            Thanks for the quick reply. We are using the timestamp to confirm that the user has been cached in the local user cache with the latest password change from AD.


            We are beginning our migration from 5.x to 7.x and one of the major differences is that the sync only pushes down 50 users at a time in 7.x vs 5.x that would allow us to pull down the entire group at one time.

              If you're migrating, then I presume you're checking that the user has been successfully added to the system. When the users are added, they will receive the most recent data that the ePO server holds.


              Luckily from V7 onwards, you can check if a particular user has been added to a client system by running the following command (changing the username, of course) on the client:


                   C:\Program Files\McAfee\Endpoint Encryption Agent>MfeEpeHost.exe -haveuser Tim_10

                   User is assigned.


              For full help on this command, run -help.


              Note that the return code will be 0 if the user is assigned, and non-zero otherwise. This should help with your scripting.


              Hope that helps,
