We currently run ePO 5.1.2 along with Agent 4.8.1938, VSE 8.8
We also run Hips 220.127.116.1122 here along with MDE 18.104.22.1684. and have not see any issue when encrypting HDD with HIPS already installed
Thanks schmiewliski. Suspecting MA 22.214.171.1246 might be the problem.
Could be.. we did some early testing with and found issue with reporting back into ePO and policy assignments so decided to stay with 4.8.1938 until a more mature release of Agent 5.x
Busy decrypting on test machine now, once decrypted I will install 4.8. and run few tests. Will post results here.
Just some feedback on my testing.
- Uninstalled MA 5.0.1.
- Installed MA 4.8.
- Installed HIPS 126.96.36.199.
- Pushed DE policy and encryption started
If you are running Drive Encryption 7.1.1. in your environment do not upgrade from 4.8 to agent 5.0 as of yet. This causes issues with the client systems getting the policy to start encrypting.
