Hi,

does anybody know in which file Norton sores its virus definitions? i'd like to create two packages - one with the application und system extentions and a second one only with the virus definitions, to keep the clients actual thourgh Filewave (the Corporate Edtion still does not work under OSX Server 10.4, so i have to use Filewave).

Thanx for help!
Thomas

Hi there!

Ok well, maybe it is a bit to early to be happy, but i guess i built a package that works. Thats what i did

First i took a scan of the destination volume. Therefor i changed the default paramters of the folders that are not includet. These folders were ignored at the scan

Syste Folder
.vol
.Trashes
Network
TheFindByContentFolder
TheVolumeSettingsFolder
Cleanup At Startup
File Transfer Folder
Trash
Volumes
automount
FileWave
fwxserver
.Trash
FileWave XAdmin Snapshots

Then i installed Norton Antivirus, and ran the Live-Update. After rebooting the System, i checked filepermissions with the harddisk utility.

Final step
Creating the Fileset with Fileset Magic, distribute it to a Client - and it works!

Great! No trouble whatsoever!

Greetings
Thomas

We have NAV10 working on OS X 10.4 Server (and clients for 10.3.9/10.4.x). Once you get used to the strange way of creating/deploying config files for the Symantec Administration Console, it's pretty straightforward, but the users/groups administration is a NIGHTMARE.



If there's a bulletproof FileWave way to do this, I'd certainly consider it.

Just to confirm... my post about NAV on OS X Server was all about using it for *administration* of NAV Mac clients. We don't run NAV on OS X Server.
The SACM install is simple enough to do and fairly easy to get the hang off, but administration of clients -in particular where you have a lot of moves and changes- can be very tedious.

Good luck!

My usergroup are wery static and we identify by computer/system so this part im not afraid of, i remember from OS9 days that FW was stoppet by NAV becuse of its nature, it looks like a virus. is this still a problem?

Can i distribute the Client Package from filewave? anything ill shold consider?

You can distribute the client packages from FileWave which are:

Symantec Antivirus Installer
Symantec Administration Client

Once you've done that... and the client computers have restarted you can then send out more customisation from the SACM console (for example, if you want to have the clients use your own LiveUpdate server). I didn't manage to get these changes to work from FileWave, but I am sure that they could be done.

I would appreciate your posting back with your own experiences!

Good luck... Pw
