So the last 2 weeks has been a blast. Okay, maybe not.
Word to the wise: if you're an environment that uses Novell's modern file sharing with the Novell client for network share access, I'm pretty sure you don't want DLP 9.3.4.
The installer fighting with VSE Access protection turned out to be a red herring when we had clean installsof 9.3.4 exhibiting the same symptoms. We rolled back to the prior version we were on to make the issue go away.
I've been busy enough responding to users wondering why their machines were locking up while saving Office docs to the Novell shared drives that I haven't yet opened the ticket to report this to McAfee. Who'll probably tell me "we don't support Novell" .. "well you sure as hell break the hell out of it, which is still different than not supporting file inspection aspects on the network drives." It'd be helpful if the issue weren't a bit intermittent and challenging to reproduce on a test host.
Wish me luck removing 9.3.4 off a boatload of hosts tonight.
