SEP 12.1.2 and Windows Firewall issue
I'm currently running SEP12.1.1 in my Production Enviroment and Dev Env as well. In my DEV environment, I upgraded (with no issues) to SEP12.1.2.
I pushed out the upgrade package to my test machines (Win XP SP3 32bit and Win7 32bit) with everything enabled except the SEP firewall and Application and Device control, exactly what was on them before. We disable the local SEP firewall and use the MS Firewall for GPO purposes. However, after I installed (upgraded from 12.1.1) 12.1.2 on the 2 different machines the Windows Firewall did not re-enable at all, even after reboot. :( - new Bug I think.
It worked perfectly on SEP12.1.1 after upgrading from SEP12.1.0.
Now I have a dilemna, whether or not to push this version out to the Client machines here. (1500+). I don't control the Server GPO's nor the Desktop/Laptop machines.
Any suggestions? Because you have to manually re-enable the Windows Firewall on each client. FYI - it stays enabled after each reboot, so re-enabling it once after installation seems to be fine. Just a PITA. :(
