    Google Chrome and System Centre Enpoint Protection

    I have a weird problem, we have recently started moving over from Sophos AV to SCCM and System Centre Endpoint Protection. The problem is that every once in a while google chrome gets stuck at connecting. Eventually it times out, try refreshing the page and still nothing. However start up internet explorer and it loads up fine. Close internet explorer and then re try chrome and everything works as it should. We have made no other changes other than changing from Sophos to SCEP.

    I have tried rebuilding the machines in question and created a fresh image and still the problem exists.... Got me a bit stumped actually!

    Anyone have any ideas?

    Thanks

    Anthony

    We have used SCEP with Chrome for years without those kind of issues. Is Chrome upto date?

    Yes. Currently Running 35.0.1916.153 m

    I have to say that it does seem to be affecting one type of machine a dell optiplex 760.

    Like @FN-GM, we don't have any issues with Chrome and SCEP.

    The next time it happens try visiting chrome://net-internals/#tests, enter a URL which fails to load and it may tell you what's wrong.

    Do you have the latest NIC drivers installed?

    I have downloaded the latest versions from the dell website and installed them just to be sure. So that rules that out. Will try the url suggestion and report back.

    Thanks

    I have tried rolling out SCEP to a different set of machines and they are now having the same problem (DELL Optiplex 755's). So I guess we can rule out anything machine specific. I am thinking it's has to be something to do with the install of SCCM client and SCEP. One thing I have noticed, it does not seem to effect admin users. Just normal users...

    Got me puzzled, not the end of the world to open IE then Chrome. But you shouldn't have to.

    Anyone any ideas?

    I guess I'd look at the SCEP config within SCCM for clues on why Chrome might be effected. Maybe create a new client configuration within SCCM where the SCEP settings are left to absolute defaults, apply it to a test system and see if Chrome behaves. If it does, look more closely at the SCEP related setting previously applied in the SCCM client settings.

    I'm in exactly the same boat. Had no issues running the 2 side-by-side.
