Health requirment server RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello

    I need some clarifications conncerning the health requirment server.

    What is the exactly defition for the health requirment server? Does the healt requirment server receive information (latest version of antivirus signature file) for example from a antivirus server or is the health requirment server the antivirus server itself?

    Tks for answering.

  • Hi Marc,

    The health requirement server sends information to NPS if needed by one of the installed SHVs. It really depends on how the SHV is designed as to what is considered the health requirement server. The health requirement server might be an AV signature server that tells NPS what AV signature is considered current, or it could be a different device on the network. What it comes down to is that the health requirement server is whatever the SHV consults to determine the current requirements. If an SHV doesn't need to consult anything because all settings are defined on NPS, then a health requirement server isn't necessary.

    I hope this helps,
