I'm running 8.5 in a corporate environment & when I want to open a remote viruscan console, it says:
Your logon was denied accessby the remote computer "pcname"
Your logon must belong to the administrators group on the remote computer.
Now I know I'm a local admin, but this still fails. Is there a workaround? I want to keep the processes locked down but would like to have this functionality if anyone knows how to get this going. Let me know.
When accessing another computers' VirusScan Enterprise console through a remote console connection, is unable to execute one of the following tasks on the remote computer:
* On-Demand Scan task * Update task.
Attempting to run an On-Demand task on the remote computer via the remote console actually unexpectedly runs the On-Demand scan on the local computer in error. Attempting to run an AutoUpdate task on the remote computer via the remote console does not run at all and does not have the same unexpected result as the On-Demand scan by running on the local computer.
Using the Update Now option, a connection window pops up and then disappears.
Same problem with 8.5. I haven't yet installed patch 3, but with patch 1 and without patches I was never able remotely connect to another VirusScan 8.5. Have tried with user from Domain admins group and with username listed in local Administrators group. No success. I hadn't such problems with Virusscan 7 and 8. Any suggestions what to configure in Virusscan on remote computer to be able connect ? Thanks.
So from the Patch 3 release notes on what is fixed
11. ISSUE: Interacting with Remote Console On-Demand Scan and AutoUpdate tasks caused the local tasks with the same id to be acted upon, instead of the remote task.
------------ My experience: now I can remotely scan other pcs but I cannot get the autoupdate task to work. I am a domain admin but I cannot get the autoupdate task to work. I don't believe this part is fixed yet.
