EAM wrongly(?) claiming system partially protected

Recommended Posts

Win 8.1, EAM 2020.1.0.9926

I just noticed my EAM systray icon has turned red.  Looking at the overview screen I see that apparently the system hasn't updated for two days - see screenshot: 1250 partial protection.jpg?dl=0

I'm pretty sure I've seen regular notification panes saying updates are happening.  And the forensic log seems to say so too: 1251 but log looks ok.jpg?dl=0

You keep debug logging on all the time, correct? So the logs contain information about the updates that aren't being reflected by EAM's status on the overview screen?

Also, if you double-click on an entry in the forensics log for an update, does it say the update was successful, and does it show any files were downloaded?

I've passed the logs on to QA, so if they need anything else I'll let you know.

@GT500  - yes, I keep logging on all the time, so yes I would hope they explain why updates aren't being indicated.

I still have a red systray icon, and the "Overview" pane is still orange.  I note that the text on that still says the last update was 2 days ago - one might have expected it now to say 3 days....

The logs screenshot I made yesterday seems to show that updates are being logged properly and the detail view of such log entries (which I did check in several cases yesterday) looks as one would expect.  For example, the most recent one says:

I shut the machine down a few minutes ago, then did a cold reboot.   When EAM restarted it still showed the red systray icon etc but almost immediately did another update and this time the icon went green after that.  I've PMed the location of debug logs for this too, to @GT500 .

I agree, that does look normal.

I've passed your new logs on to QA as well.
