    VSE doesn't install on workstations


      I'm new to this and can't find decent doco.
      I've installed EPO and imported/sync'd with AD so I see my workstations under systems. I have deployed the McAfee Agent using EPO. All fine.
      Under Configuration/Extensions I see VirusScan Enterprise 8.5. Version is and Status is installed.
      So I create a new Client Task under systems to deploy VSE. I select "Product Deployment (McAfee Agent)".
      I set the target platform to Windows, select the product "VirusScan Enterprise 8.5.0" and action to install. Also selected "Run at every policy enforcement" just to be sure. I set the time etc and save.
      It doesn't appear to run at the designated time. Well it doesn't run at all.
      I also notice that the workstations that the agent is installed on show in non compliant in the dashboard.

      Any ideas what I may be doing wrong???
      Any help would be great thanks.

          Did you try the schedule "run immediatly" for your deployement task ?

            Hi Damien,

            Thanks for the reply. Yes I set it to run immediatly. When reading the VSE log file on the client I noticed that the scan did run after all but it doesn't show it's progress as it's running.
            Is this normal??

              Try disabling the task first...
              Then, wake up the client at least twice (verify that the task change was recognized)...
              Then, re-enable the task again...
              You may need to wake up the client several times but, monitor the client log via http://<clientcomputer>:8081 (if you have not changed the default port
