We're currently in the process of running a Proof of Concept with LANDesk 9 and we've hit a major stumbling block.
We use the McAfee Endpoint Encryption product (formerly known as Safeboot) to encrypt our hard disks. The problem we have is deploying an OS to a machine with an encrypted hard disk.
When we schedule an OS deployment task, the machine will reboot and immediately show an “Operating System not found” error.
To be clear – we are still able to manually put the machine into a PXE boot, and we can successfully re-image the machine using LANDesk. It is purely when we schedule a task within LANDesk and let the agent reboot the machine that the process fails.
Has anyone any experience of using McAfee disk encryption and LANDesk together? My guess is that LANDesk and Safeboot are both fighting over the MBR of the hard disk… and they both lose!
