we have a similar problem. We updated our terminalserver 2003r2 x64 to vse8.8 patch 7, agent version is 18.104.22.168
After reboot of the server, vse8.8 stops working (Access Protection and On-Access scanner).
Is there any known problem? We uninstalled VSE 8.8, rebooted the server and tried to install the repost patch7 package without luck. :-(
Servers are know running without vse 8.8
Is there any procedure to fix this problem?
Our head office contacted McaFee and the response I got is that 2003 is no longer supported...
I managed to overcome my problem today (but still watching so you need to be on the safe side).
BACKUP/IMAGE anything you need - this worked for me but you may have other factors affecting the outcome
1. Uninstall the current agent and VSE.
2. Reboot (if your AD policies deploy AV during startup then disable that otherwise the current product will deploy again)
3. Install agent 22.214.171.1243 (I have it waiting in evaluation)
4. Install VSE 8.8.07 (once again I have it in evaluation)
Make sure the VSE you are installing includes a "patch" directory and it has patch 7 in it.
VSE access protection and on-access scanner are now "enabled", not failing as before.
So far so good.
