As a admin on eP0 3.6 I'm trying to create a query on which virusscanner are disabled within my network. Alas! I don't have the funniest clue how to do this...
What seems to happen is the following: Within ePo 3.6 all seems right with my security on the workstation. But after looking at several workstations it seems the on access scan has been disabled. When I look up the specific workstation in ePo is states that all the properties are up to date. Only after I choose 'retrieve full product properties' it shows the 'real' state of the virusscanner.
Isn't there a way I can get ePo to work in my advantage? Running a query which shows me if a workstation has a disabled on-access scanner?
I could do it manually, but there a lot of workstation within my network...
When I look at the General setting of an Workstation (WS) is see the 'right settings'. WS seems to be up to date. (See picture). But the strange thing is, that when I take a look at the WS itself, it shows an disabled on-access scan and often a not up to date virusscanner.
Only when I choose 'Send Agent WakeUp Call' and check 'get full product properties' I get the 'real settings'. Showing me a lower szDATversion and engine Version.
Isn't there a way to automate this? And why aren't the properties showing up correct?
As this could lead to Virusses not being detected or such problems as you had described I would strongly recommend upgrading to at least Virusscan 8.0 or the newest version 8.5. This can be done in place and, if you have a valid support contract, free of charge.
