MDECLientAnalyzer - Please note the sensor on this device is not PPL protected

After Defender for Endpoint client Installation, I have got this error.






The device is already onboarded but Exposure Level is unavailable:

This is a bug with the code in the client analyzer script (MDEClientAnalyzer.ps1).

The part where the script checks the PPL level (starting on line 3107) of the sense service is only looking for Windows OS with English language.


If you received "SCHUTZEBENE DES DIENSTES “sense”: WINDOWS, GERING" as the result of running `sc.exe qprotection sense` then that is the same as `PROTECTION LEVEL: WINDOWS LIGHT`
