Hi All...

I would like to share my story regarding Symantec Endpoint Protection.  I am from HCL Infosystems Ltd, where I am a Customer Engineer managing a team of five people.  Specifically, I manage SEP deployments for our customers.

This particular customer had an older AV software installed which wasn't providing thorough protectio - a virus outbreak in the network caused many of the machines to go down for extended periods of time.  The customer decided to go with SEP primarily because of its new features.  Specifically, they wanted individual management points in each location, and one central location to manage the entire infrastructure.  Previously, they were not able to bring all clients under one management console due to various difficulties.  The deployment consisted of 49 locations across India, with one server in each location.  Additionally, one server was deployed in Bangalore as the primary server. ...

1 To prevent an automatic sweep of the database until after a backup occurs, increase the Site Properties Log Settings to their maximum permissible value.

2 Perform the backup, as you may feel appropriate.

3 On the computer where the manager is installed, open a Web browser and type the following URL:

https://localhost:8443/servlet/ConsoleServlet?Acti...

After you have performed this task, the log entries for all types of logs are saved in the alternate database table. The original table is kept until the next sweep is initiated.

4 To empty all but the most current entries, perform a second sweep. The original table is cleared and entries then start to be stored there again.

5 Reconfigure the Site Properties Log Settings to the initial preferred values.

Disk full message erroneously appears when downloading LiveUpdate updates

If your network environment already supports the proxy servers that are compliant with the HTTP 1.1 protocol or later, you can disregard this entry.

After you have tried to download LiveUpdate for the first time, the following message might appear:

"LU1863: Insufficient free disk space
There is not enough free disk space for LiveUpdate to operate properly. Please free up disk space on your computer and run LiveUpdate again."

You might have insufficient disk space. However, it is much more probable that this message appears in error because the proxy server is unable to send the correct Contents-Length header field.

This error message might appear on Symantec Endpoint Protection Manager, a Symantec Endpoint Protection client, or a Symantec Network Access Control client.

You should verify that the disk...

Takes a long time for Firewall Policy Overview page to appear when running with more than 500 groups in SEP Manager...

For more than 500 groups, it takes 1.5 minutes to display the Firewall Policy Overview page

If you click the Add a Firewall Policy command, it can take up to 1.5 minutes for the Firewall Policy Overview page to appear. This occurs if the management server contains 500 or more groups. The problem occurs because it takes time for the Overview page displays all the groups and locations that the existing firewall policies are assigned to.

This happens due to the "locationCounting" settings enabled which is used to count and display the same for the user every time the page is attempted to open. When you have a higher number lets say more then 500 it takes ~1.5 mins to count and display the same.

To work around this issue, perform the following steps:

Close all instances of the Symantec Endpoint Protection Manager Console....

After you configure database maintenance options, the new options are applied at midnight, and not immediately.

To configure the database options:

  1. In the console, click Admin > Servers, and then select a site.
  2. Under Tasks, click Edit Site Properties, and then click the Database tab.

To configure the management server to apply the database maintenance options immediately, you can configure the conf.properties file.

To configure the config.properties file:

  1. Open the conf.properties file, located in the C:\Program Files\Symantec\Symantec Endpoint Protection Manager\tomcat\etc directory by default.
  2. Change the following parameters:
  • Change scm.object.idletime=3600000 (in milliseconds) to a smaller number. The default setting is 1 month.
  • Change scm.timer.objectsweep=900 (in seconds) to a smaller number.The default setting...

There have been a ton of questions on how to migrate to the new Symantec Endpoint Protection Small Business Edition.
Probably the easiest way to remember this is the following:
CROSSGRADE at RENEWAL.

For current customers on SAV CE, when you are up for renewal, simply use the cross grade sku to get SEP SBE.

Below is a great URL that gives a summary on migration paths as well as price impact:
