2.0 Installing the Full Disk Encryption Agent

The Full Disk Encryption Agent is the ZENworks Adaptive Agent module that is responsible for enforcing Disk Encryption policy settings on managed devices. Because it is a module, it can be installed, enabled, disabled, and uninstalled without affecting the other capabilities provided by the Adaptive Agent. The following operational states are possible for the Full Disk Encryption Agent:

By default, the Full Disk Encryption Agent is installed and enabled on managed devices if ZENworks Full Disk Encryption is activated in either license mode or evaluation mode. If you want to change the operational state of the agent, see the instructions in Customizing the Agent Features in the ZENworks 11 Discovery, Deployment, and Retirement Reference.

IMPORTANT:ZENworks Full Disk Encryption is not supported on devices that use UEFI firmware; BIOS firmware is required. The Full Disk Encryption Agent will not be installed to any UEFI devices in your ZENworks Management Zone.
