I installed a new AV server. It is runinng Symantec AV 10.1 and Symantec System Center The clients (running Symantec 10.1) did not check into the new server after pushing out a new install of AV. The problem was with the reg keys and the certificate not being updated. This script will copy the new certificate to the target computer, update the regkeys and then it will restart the symantec service. Then in a few seconds the clients will check into the Symantec System Center on their own!
This script has been updated!
I placed the second script below the first one, just incase anyone wants to use the old script. To operate the new script, create a txt file with the names of the machines you need to have log into the SSC.
Then just drop the .txt file onto the script… The rest is automatic!
When using Symantec System Center, you are sometimes unable to retreive information from your remote clients. This is because something is stopping communications between the AntiVirus Server and the Client workstation. If you are running Active Directory, you can easily configure a Group Policy to allow these types of communications.
