Scheduled scan shutdown problem rears it's head again


Recommended Posts

After installing the most recent ESET Endpoint Security 9.1.2051.0 to a test grouping of clients, those clients are now shutting down after a scheduled scan with no post-scan behavior selected. This is occurring on both Win10 and Win11 clients. Event log shows:

The process C:\Program Files\ESET\ESET Security\ekrn.exe (ComputerName) has initiated the power off of computer ComputerName on behalf of user NT AUTHORITY\SYSTEM for the following reason: Other (Planned)
 Reason Code: 0x80000000
 Shutdown Type: power off

Behavior is identical to what happened back in v7.2, as referenced in this thread: 


I've shut down the scheduled scans for now to prevent the computers from shutting down, but a quick fix for this would be very helpful as I don't like not scanning regularly.
