I have a script that pushes Norton antivirus updates to our users if they have CE, but I would also like to add Nav for Exchange and Norton Email gateway to the script, so I can just log into those servers to update them. Does anyone know how to get kix to detect these servers?

Huh? NAV CE does automatic pattern sharing. Why would you have to script it?

The parent server will automatically push out its pattern file to all the managed clients within minutes of getting the update. All this without users having to logoff/logon or run any script.

The only script I am running is to update the parent server more often than what CE offers out of the box.

We don't have the resources here to implement a antivirus server. That's why its pushed through a script.

eh, i kinda like the way it is now. all i have to do is throw the new definitions in a folder when they come out. we're not allowed to use live update here either, so why go through the trouble if i'm just going to have to update it manually all the time anyways?

I figured out how to tell if exchange is loaded, now i just need to be able to tell if NAV for email gateways is installed.

our network hasn't been around all that long. since april of this year maybe? we do have zip drives though. I have no idea why since zip cartriges and floppies don't last more than a few uses here in the desert.

Now, explain that to me. Do do have the licenses for NAVCE, but you do not install the server component on even one computer? What's the reason to buy NAVCE in the first place then? The requirements for the server component of NAVCE are not that high.

Additionally, when using the Liveupdate Administrator Utility, you can point your computers to a local location for AV update purposes.

If you're running liveupdate and you're not using the vdtm method (automatic push) you can download the i32 or x86 file from symantec's ftp site and set up an automatic task on your exchange server to run it...

That way it'll get defs daily...

first, we have kindof like a business wide license for CE. (We're set up all over the world). The reason we don't a server isn't set up is because we don't have extra servers/workstations for it.

We're not allowed to use liveupdate at all. Our NOSC(Network Operations Support Cell) has to test and validate definitions before we can use them. even if we wanted to sneak around and set up getting the files from symantec's ftp server, we would have to send a firewall request to our NOSC asking them to open the port on Sidewinder for that specific machine to symantec, which would let them know that we were trying to set up liveupdate.(We don't have control of our firewall)

I also want to add that Baghdad sucks... in case you wanted to know

First off, the NAV Parent server doesn't need much, and certainly doesn't need a dedicated server. Mine runs on a 233 Mhz and doubles as a RAS server.

Secondly, you don't have to use live update for pattern sharing. You can do manual updates. By pattern sharing, you can push out the pattern to every machine in minutes without requiring any of the machines to run a logon script or reboot.

It sounds like your NOSC is in control of getting defs and testing them. Why not let them figure out how to push them to clients?

They have us push them out through scripts. I'm just trying to be lazy and have the script update our Email Gateway when i log into it.

I understood what you said about the way you push out defs, but it'd be soooooooooo much easier to update one server and have it push out defs to your clients....
