SEPM 12 for Peoplesoft attachment (PT8.53 and PT8.51)

Created: 10 Sep 2013 • Updated: 12 Sep 2013 | 2 comments
This issue has been solved. See solution.

Hello,

We're currently enabling virus scan for PT 8.53 with Symantec Endpoint Protection v12. However, we are unable to configure it correctly. Our set up looks like this:

PS webserver is insatalled on server 1, this is where we configure the virusscan.xml file

SEP 12 is installed on a separate server, server 2. client and SEP manager is installed on this server.

OS is Windows 2008 R2 64-bit for both servers.

May I know if  anyone here have successfully used SEP 12 for scanning attachments?

Unfortunately, as per oracle, only symantec scan engine was verified to work with peoplesoft, other versions are still not tested to work.

 another question is, what should be the value for the virusscan.xml parameters below:

    <Provider>
     <name>SymantecManagementClient</name>
 <class>psft.pt8.virusscan.provider.GenericVirusScanProviderImpl</class>
    <icapversion>ICAP/1.0</icapversion>
    <service-name>/SmcService</service-name>
    <policycommand>?action=SCAN</policycommand>
    <address>server2</address>
    <port>8014</port>
    <disable>false</disable>
  thank you in adance for your help.

we've installed Protection engine for cloud services and it worked perfectly. the sample setup on peoplebooks will work AS IS, just update the ip address.

 

its a surprise this fact is not listed anywhere on the internet :(
