Symantec Partner Engage 2009, our annual North American partner conference, took place in early November in Orlando, Florida.  The theme of this year’s event was Unstoppable and more than 380 partners and ten media from North America joined us to hear Symantec’s leadership team discuss our focus—both from a corporate and channel perspective—and to learn about Symantec’s channel programs and opportunities for 2010. 
Throughout the event, Symantec discussed the Four Rs of the channel: Revenue, Readiness, Reputation and Relevance. Partners were excited to hear about new readiness tools, like SymDemo, and new programs, including the Enterprise Security Specialization and enhanced Renewals Program, designed to help them drive revenue and maintain relevance with their customers.  Finally, we announced a new partner community to help foster collaboration and communication between Symantec and our...

At first I was bummed out when the catalog went away boo hoo no cruise. Then I looked at Amazon and realized how sweet this deal is. I had over 25000 points so I shopped a lot which is great since I like to shop. First I got some "Pergo flooring" to redo the dining room and living room in my home. Then I purchased a new gas range for the kitchen. I got a Wii fit system, an IPOD for my son, a blue ray DVD player, a reciprocating saw, a scan tool for car repairs my husband wanted this stuff. One dual 9” DVD gaming system for my daughters' car, 2 mongoose bicycles for my grandsons, a Sony 12.1 mega pixel digital camera, some mineral makeup, advantage for the dog, a couple of memory sticks one for the camera and one for a gaming system, an extra Wii controller. The Fedex and UPS drivers were delivering to my house like it was Christmas which by the way I have covered with all my purchases. Thanks Symantec I got a bonus this year just by submitting some articles and...

As some of us admins completely ignored the existence of Windows Vista, you may have also missed the replacement for the adminpak.msi. As this is no longer used a version has been released for Vista & Windows 7. I'm going to walk you through getting this on W7. This will allow you to access AD Users & Computers and all the other tools you so dearly love as admins.

:- Download and install the RSAT (Remote Server Administration Tools) found on the Microsoft website. There is also a x64 version if you require that.
You can find this tool here;

:- Once installed you will notice in the start menu you’ll have extra admin entries, but no...

I couldn't find anywhere else to post this...

As a mouse-agnostic user, I'd like an accelerator key to be added to the default submit button, Save, in Connect. Something radical like Alt+S would be good...

Also, given the length of some threads/articles, an extra breadcrumb link at the foot of the page to match the one at the top? Both links need "buttonising" with, of course, an accelerator key. I could use 'Backspace', sure, but on the junk keyboards that PCs come wtih these days (they'll have to rip the 20-odd year old IBM AT keyboard I ahve on my home PC from my cold, dead hand), with added key bounce, one cannot guarantee only one key-press.

Then a comment by ErikW in  gave me a new Ray of Hope

Then I logged on to Amazon website and browsed a little bit and found these two pages

Are there any plans to provide an ExecView replacement/analog for present or future versions?

One of the questions that repeatedly comes up on the board is "How can I let my Backup Operators monitor BackupExec without giving them Domain Admin rights?"

Hi Team,

First of all, let me thank the whole community for being very generous in giving their ideas, thoughts and knowhow to help us in solving our issues and problems on virus infections. Symantec rewards us by giving us memorable tokens of appreciation for doing our best in giving each one a helping hand. I had noticed several members who are outside the United States that are also making this site work very professional and effective. Due to this, I would suggest that we add more rewards items to further give us the freedom to choose more...

Symantec has resolved this by using and other certified resellers to deliver our priceless rewards but some parts of the world would not be reached by Amazon. This is why I had proposed an idea that would help us to choose more...

Please kindly see the following link below and vote so that it would have a chance to be heard and implemented by our good Admins...
