  • i think youre going to need a third party anti virus platform compatible with NAP to do this, by default NAP just checks the windows security centre sha to see if you have a compatible anti-virus  installed and is it upto date, im not sure how it works out the "anti virus is upto date" part

    to provide remediation youre going to need a AV vendor product compatible with NAP

    at least thats how i think it works...

  • Correct as Johnson David said. To achive this you need to get NAP Plugins (in NAP terms it is plugins are called as SHA / SHV) from the antivirus company.

  • This is pathetic, we can monitor AV's thru Security Center and WMI in XP. However, I am not able to find any solution for Windows 2003 and the rest.. I would appreciate if any MS guys can hand out some link or info....

  • In Windows Server SKUs there is no Security Center Service, so the WMI is not there. That Security Center feature is for Client SKUs only as of today.
