Thanks for the excellent product.
This is my first report on the Second CESM Beta.
The installation went well. The configuration tool has no issues for me now. I have added a client via deployment and a client from client side. Both went smoothly.
Still, I do not find most of the points I pointed in my previous Beta1 feedback exist ‘as it is’ without any modification.
Unfortunately, I could not find the release notes too.
Here are my observations…
I still have no luck with my Firefox x 64, since “Silverlight” does not yet have an x64 version. I have to use IE (I have stopped using it for many years)
I do not find a way to identify what configuration a policy contains. Since, If I imported a policy from Client 3, later I am at Console and want to know what it is (whether archive scanning is allowed or not etc.,) I have no choice, I can not find it here at the console, nor I can see it at client 3; since, I first have to change it to local admin mode to even see things. Not an intuitive approach.
I still have this question unanswered, whether the exceptions and files added to D+ trusted files list are also imported to the console policy and applied to all systems or just the configuration is imported. We need a way to deal with exceptions and trusted files separately from CIS configuration.
It says I have one system which is non-compliant with the applied policy, but I do not have a way to find out how it differs from the applied policy. Either I have to stick to the non-complaint policy or force apply the standard policy without knowing what changes are going to happen in that system.
I do not still find a way to remove a managed client from console, we can only add but not delete.
It says in the dashboard that I have one infected computer, when I try to see the details, it shows the results of my previous scan, where in the infections were actually cleaned.
I think it should say, One computer has been cleaned or “contained infection” rather than simply say “infected”, which gives a false impression that it is still infected and I need to take action to clean it, where as it is actually already cleaned.
Again, the back button behavior is weird, instead of taking me to the previous page I was visiting, it takes me to the item above the current one in it’s hierarchy, it is annoying and frustrating too. I have to go through all the steps to just get to the previous page I was visiting…
That’s it for today, I will come back with more tomorrow.
