Symantec AntiVirus CE RRS feed

  • Question


    WSS is installed with disk protection on an XP SP2 machine in a Windows 2000 domain.  We are using Symantec AntiVirus CE v. 10.0.  The client gets Windows updates from a WSUS server and SAV updates from a SAV server.  Both these servers (actually the same box) are on the LAN.


    WSS is configured to allow updates daily at 9:00 a.m.  It appears that virus definition updates, which the client downloads at logon, are saved permanently during this window.  Am I correct in thinking that no script is required in this scenario?

  • Hi BanJoe,


    Windows SteadyState can update the system from a WSUS server and then keep the updates.  For Symantec Antivirus CE v. 10.0 update, although I am not sure how it works with the SAV server, you can restart the computer manually and then check if the latest definitions have been kept. If the Antivirus program has the latest definitions, it’s no need to write a script.


    Note: You must first run Windows Updates manually to perform the initial registration of Windows Updates components on your computer. After you manually install and configure Windows Updates, you can then schedule Windows SteadyState automatic updates and specify the frequency of Windows Updates downloads.


    Best Regards,
