Scheduled Scan - Policy manager Issue

Hi,

 

I have the last few days been setting up and testing the F-secure policy manager since we are about to deploy F-secure to our systems.

 

I have created a Scheduled task with a weekly quick scan (/t12:00 /rweekly /s5 | generic) and a monthly full scan. (/t14:00 /rmonthly /s1) - in the advanced mode. Fsecure 1.jpg

 

The policy is showed fine under the Policy domain, and the one client im testing on. But under the status of the Client there scheduled task isn't there. On the laptop with the software installed there isn't any scheduled task either, (have looked in the windows task manager as well.)

    This is weird. Should it not be set up on the laptop as well? I mean should it also be set up seperately?

    I hope not. Then i have to set the schedule on 200 laptops so that will not be a solution. Smiley Happy

     

    I need to get the policy mangere to do it for me. Just need to figure out how?

    Hello MrJ,

     

    Can you make sure that the policy containing the scheduled task has been distributed(CTRL+D) and that the client received it.

    To check that the latest policy is in use on the client go in anti-virus mode and the status tab.

    Hi Ben,

     

    The policy with the scheduled task should should be distributed, but maded som changes that wasn't distributed but they are now.

     

    The status under the advanced view is still no scheduled task.

    F-Secure is using the systrem scheduler. Is that active?

    Could you create a task in Windows itself?

    Does it work with a XP-Client in the same domain?

    I will take a look on it monday when im at the office again Smiley Happy

     

    XP ? :-P we dont have any client running xp Smiley Happy everyone on Windows 7 and a few left on Vista. 

  • Hello,

    I found this topic - I have the same problem - policy is distributed and applied to clients, but the scheduler scan - not. Missing in the status tab. FS AV 9.50 (FSCS 11), Policy manager 11. I can create schedule task manually in client security settings. Is there a solution?

    Regards!

    Hello Draval,

     

    You say that the schedule task doesn't show in the status tab. Does the scan run on the clients?

    Is it visible on the Windows scheduled tasks settings?

     

    Please provide also more details on the Operating system used.

     

     

    Thank you

  • Thanks for the answer Ben,

    Your questions pointed me to see that actually the task appears in client's Task scheduler, but does not run. In the history there are only "Task registration updated" every day. The parameter is /ti15 /rmonthly - so it try to run at 0:00 h, when most of PC's are off. But those that are online doesn't start too. Which log could I check?  OS-es are  Windows XP sp3, some Vista sp2 and mostly Windows 7 SP1 32 and 64. PMServer is installed on MS Server 2003 sp2 std.

     

    Best Regards!

  • Hello Ben,

    - Yes, those are the parameters:
    month full    /ti15 /rmonthly    Scan Local Drives

    - They have to start as you mentioned (with random delay, as I read)

     

    So I will check what hapens in windows environment and may change the way the task triggers. Will post the results.

    Thank You very much for the advices!

     

  • Hello Ben,

    I changed parameters to run the scaning task during the day and it starts normally on client's PCs. Thank You very much!
