Temporarily Disable CSA?

Unanswered Question

Is there a way to programmatically temporarily disable CSA, and then re-enable it programmatically? I'm looking for a way to disable CSA from starting (loading DLLs, starting the client...basically stopping all functionality) temporarily while a software installation runs, requiring multiple reboots. Then at the end of the installation, re-enabling all the functionality of CSA? Any help would be greatly appreciated!



I have this problem too.

Hi Steve,

Interesting request but not the first time I have heard it. It begs the question, "If you could do it via a program what would stop a hacker from doing the same?"

From my experience you will have to un-install CSA before you can run a software installation program which requires multiple reboots. Then you would have to re-install CSA.

Hope this helps. If we are lucky the resident West Coast expert on CSA, Tom S. will chime in.

Hi Steve (and thanks Paul)

If you can't make exceptions for the installations (there are quite a few canned policies to work with), I would suggest a maintenance window where the rules blocking the install are put in test mode. After the installs they can be reenabled.

If this does not work then Paul's suggestion may be the only alternative.
