Whilst this may seem great at first, over the years this has built up a number of systems each requiring their own management systems, portals, update systems and most importantly, they lack integration between solutions. Whilst this may seem like a large problem, it gets worse - the issue with these customers was that they had multiple products performing conflicting tasks. 

 

One example from a customer who had one product that is designed to AV scan contents of a USB pen drive upon connection to the machine. Another product to encrypt USB pen drives upon connection. This is great if the admin could...

Hello Gents,

We normally do come across the scenario of Live update affecting our ususal work of, being a Symantec administrator. Scenarios like

  1. Clients do not have the ability to launch liveupate even though policy is been set to do so. Or vice versa.
  1. Low disk space causing SEP not to update on critical serves. Definition is stored only on the OS drive were space is a major concern.

 

By default the SEP definitions will be stored in the Operating System drive even if we install it in a different partition.

With the following process we can configure the Liveupdate settings, the number of revision that is kept on the SEP (client) and also change the location on where it is stored.

 

I )   To enable Liveupdate on the SEP.

(Reuters) - Saudi Arabian Oil Co (Saudi Aramco) SDABO.UL said its computer systems had been shut down by a virus late on Wednesday, but it added that production had not been affected.

"An official source of Saudi Aramco confirmed that it had isolated electronic systems for the entire company today and cut off external access as an early precaution," said a statement in Arabic from the company.

The world's biggest oil company said that although the virus affected some computers, it did not penetrate key components of the network, which it said would return to normal operating mode soon.

"The source ... reiterated the lack of any effect at all on the work of production due to the strength of advanced protection systems," the statement added.

Rumours had spread among traders earlier on Wednesday that the state-owned company had been subjected to a hacking attack.
