Determine if there is any explicit statement that permits this user state to disable the Cisco Security Agent (CSA) processes.

Although the combination of User State != (NOT equal to) install user and a deny action implies that install user is permitted, the system requires an explicit permit statement.

To construct a rule to explicitly permit this user state to make this change, perform these steps:

  1. Change the user state from Users Matching: All  But Not:  *\installuser to  Users Matching: *\installuser.
  2. Re-name the user state to InstallUser (so that it reads more logically).

  3. Ensure that The Rule Action = Allow "attempt to disable agent security is checked.

Re-test the rule.
