settings locked on endpoint security clients.

Hello,

I have deployed era 6 on a new server by import from era5.

 

Now I have the strange behaviour that a lot of the settings on the clients seem te bo locked (see attachment).

 

That makes it impossible to add f.e. firewall rules on some clients locally.

 

Is there somebody who can help me out on this? 

I'm having difficulties finding my way around the new era.

Find one of your client computers in the ERA 6 console and look at the applied policies - policies may be applied to individual computers or to computer groups. Then for each polocy that's applied, have a look at the settings in that policy.

Thank you for your reply. The only applied policy is the policy that was imported from ERA5. Is there a setting to lock applied settings or so in this new version?

Settings defined in a policy are automatically locked on clients. Those that are not defined (ie. have no Apply nor Force flag) can be modified on clients.

All "applied" settings are automatically locked and there is no way how to disable this functionality. Lock will be removed once policy is no longer assigned to this specific client (remove policy, or remove association between policy and client).

Thanks for the insightfull answers.

 

So If I understand correctly, as soon as I deploy a policy with some firewall rules in to a client, that client is NOT able to add ANY firewall rule anymore?

Just confirmed the above.
I made a policy with only one firewall rule added.

Setting this renders the client unable to add any firewall rule at all.

Is this by design or a bug?

It's by design. A policy is a set of settings and rules that are applied on clients. If a user was able to modify settings set by an administrator, it wouldn't make sense to use policies.
