This article provides brief information and steps to disable the File Integrity Monitoring (FIM) driver.

The FIM driver is installed and enabled during a LEM agent installation to a Windows machine. It allows the FIM connector to read and collect file auditing events from a Windows host. 

The FIM driver is disabled for troubleshooting purposes only. Contact your administrator to check for any security policies before performing the following steps.

Disable FIM driver from the LEM Console: 

  1. Log into your LEM console.
  2. Go to Manage > Nodes.
  3. Select the agents you want the FIM driver to disable on startup. 
    To select multiple agents, press and hold the Ctrl key.
  4. Click the FIM Driver Control drop-down and select Disable driver on agent startup.

The FIM driver should now be disabled from your LEM console.

  1. Open the Command Prompt (CMD) with administrator rights.
  2. Run the following command:
