Active Directory migration problems with F-Secure



In my company we are merging multiple Active Directories to a single new one.

This in itself is quite a task..


And we ran into a small issue with F-Secure Client Security (v11.60).

We experience that if we don't stop the FSGKHS service the ADMT is not able to run a succesfull computer migration.


With some scripting using PStools : E:\PSTools\psexec \\<computername or IP> -u <admin account> -p <Password> net stop FSGKHS


Is there a more elegant solution I can allow the ADMT to run via the Policy manager?


Advice/tips/tricks are very much appreciated.

    Hello JelleH,


    We didn't receive any similar reports about AD migration problems before.

    That's why we don't have any better solution at hand.

    To investigate your issue, we'll need more detailed information from one of affected computers. Please, contact support.


    Best regards,

    Hi Vad,


    We don't get any specific errors when we migrate ...

    F-secure doesnt show pop ups or anything but when we stop the FSGKHS (F-Secure Gatekeeper Handler Starter) the migration goes ahead with no issues..


    Would it help if I get some diagnostics to Tech support?


    Thanks for your quick response!

    Yes, most likely debug logs for NIF and SP modules can shed the light on this issue.

    It would be very helpful for us if you can provide them.


    Thanks in advance,

    Unfortunately we cannot find the support case you opened earlier. Could you please let us know the SR # of the support case? Else, kindly open a new support case, together with the fsdiag collected from the problematic system for further investigation required.
