No Scanners Available

having F-Secure Policy Manager Console 11.22.56488 as a new installation on virtual server.

- Installed 2 windows 7 clients (F-Secure Client Security 11.60)

- one client Windows 2008 (F-Secure Server Security 11.01)

 

The installation was successful but have the following problems:

- All clients Windows 7 and Windows 2008 are having a problem

"No Scanners Available"

"No scanners engines loaded virus protection is disabled"

in the status of Real-time scanning its disabled while I set the setting to be enabled!!!

- scanning reports are working fine also.

- I cannot install hot fixes for both Windows 7 clients remotely or via export from PMC

- I cannot install hot fix 02 for windows 2008 clients remotely or via export from PMC while I was able to install hot fix 01 via export from PMC only

 

 

I don't know what I have set wrong, please help me to resolve it or guide me through the problem.

 

thanks in advance

    Are these machines Physical or Virtual machines?

  • The server is Virtual machine based on VMware while clients are physical machine

  • BenBen Posts: 2,641 F-Secure Product Expert

    Unfortunately if you are using physical clients, they should be completely cleaned(uninstalled in order to remove OSA) and reinstalled without the Offload scanning Agent.

     

    As stated : Offload scanning Agent(OSA) should be used on virtual machines and with a Scanning and Reputation Server(SRS) only.

     

    As for the server as it is a single machine, I would advise to uninstall the Server security and reinstall it also. The Offload Scanning  is making sense with multiple hosts offloading part of the work to a dedicated machine.

     

    Be careful on the server, it is hosting also the Policy Manager. Therefore take the necessary back-ups before uninstallation, to be on the safe side.

    Hello Hussainbah,

     

    Yes,the server should be reinstalled without the Offload Scanning Agent, if you wish not to implement an SRS server.

    You can install the Server security in standalone, but that is not necessary as you won't be able to manage it from the PM console in that case.

     

    You can reach the Server security user interface by launching Start>All Programs> F-Secure>Webconsole or [F-Secure Installation folder]\FSGUI\fsavaui.exe
