I'm now ready to migrate from old epo to new epo server v 4 patch 1. The prob is still with lotus notes. All the machines are installed with vs 8.5i and are working fine. As soon as I update a machine with vs 8.7, lotus notes crashes. I saw in another thread that it should be fixed within an update, but vs 8.7 patch 1 did not solve the problem.
Also, I'm having a +3000 pcs, so I cannot think about removing the two lines in the notes .ini manually.
Is there a way to tell viruscan 8.7 via eop or not to NOT touch the lotus.ini at all ?
is it possible to check a customized install into EPO??? I'm guessing the two lines you're removing from the Notes.ini are the hooks for the e-mail scanner. If that's not there it should't edit the ini file.
Since we have the On-Delivery Email Scanner disabled in our environment, we do not need the McAfee files inside the Notes directory.
A handful of our users experience their Notes crashing, and our solution is to delete unneeded McAfee files using the PUP policy. We created a custom policy under the Unwanted Programs Policies section.
Went to the User-Defined tab for the Workstations and added: Filename Description NCInstall.dll Unneeded McAfee file NCDaemon.exe Unneeded McAfee file NCTrace.dll Unneeded McAfee file NCScan.dll Unneeded McAfee file NCExtMgr.dll Unneeded McAfee file NCMenu.dll Unneeded McAfee file
We thought about deleting the 2 lines in the notes.ini file, but found that some executives and managers have additional information (other than McAfee) listed. To delete the lines would make their addins inoperable.
I too disable the email scanner as we scan incoming/outgoing email at the gateway. I have came across this problem before and made the decision to create a custom install using the mcafee designer tool to create a custom package and switched off the email scan. Since doing this, I haven't had any issues with Notes.
