NAV7.5 EE autoupdate

NAV7.5 EE autoupdate

Has anyone found a way of getting the primary server to check for updates on Symantec site.  At the moment the server does this once a day and there does not seem to be a way to get it to check more often for updates.  A lot can happen in 24hrs.

RE: NAV7.5 EE autoupdate

It is very rare that Symantec issues updated virus defintions on anything less than a daily basis, so once every 24-hours should be enough to keep you current. Empahsys on should...

You can increase the frequency via the Symantec System Console (SSC), assuming you have the NAV Corporate Edition. Access the server you want to change, right click on it, choose Tasks -> Norton Antivirus, and then choose the Virus defintion manager option. From there you have access to all of the controls for the definiton downloads.

Hope that helps -

RE: NAV7.5 EE autoupdate

24hrs might be fine if you did not just miss the update.  Say your server is set to check for updates on Monday a 8am.  Suddenly a new virus hits the net and Norton update the def at around 8.30am you are now vulnerable for nearly 24hrs as you will not be checking back again till Tuesday at 8am.

We also use sophos within our company and this checks every half hour for updates.  Sophos is on all our servers and Norton on Workstations.  All our Norton Clients check in with the EE console every 30mins.  I can not see where you schedule anything other than a day
  I sent you a screen shot of the screen I see
