Copy the contents of the following folder

C:\Program Files\Symantec\Symantec Endpoint Protection Manager\Inetpub\ClientPackages\<your own group id here>\full

to a network share ex. \\someserver\sep that every user has read/execute access to

Then create a Group Policy Object to run the following script (.bat file) at login/startup (this can also be used with landesk and psexec):

  1. IF EXIST "c:\Program Files\Symantec\Symantec Endpoint Protection" GOTO END
  2. NET USE Z: \\someserver\sep /PERSISTENT:NO
  3. z:\setup.exe /s /v"/qn"

Having recently deployed Symantec Endpoint Protection 11 to the rest of the company, I'm happy to report that the experiences have been quite favorable on both Windows XP, Vista and Server 2003.

If upgrading from Norton Anti-Virus Corporate, make sure to completely remove that software before the install.  Also, you may need to delete the Extend.dat file located in the user profile to reset the Outlook add-in for NAV Corp.

I'll keep posting about my experiences regarding the rest of the deployment.

Last week I installed two SecurityExpressions Audit and Compliance Servers. Along the road, I ran across a small speed bump. Maybe if I point it out, you can take it on without slowing down.

One of the first things that needs to be specified is a database component. You can choose between Oracle, MS SQL or Firebird.

If you choose Microsoft SQL, please be aware that the SA password may not be empty, and has to abide by two rules.

  1. Password Strength: Minimum 1 capital.
  2. Password Length: Minimum 8 characters.

When your SA password does not comply, you will get an ODBC SQL error stating that you used the wrong password or username.

It took me almost 4 hours to find out what was wrong.

Hey, I just saved you 4 hours!

Good luck.
