  • Alexander, As you suggested (in off the forrum corespondence) running ....\F-Secure\Management Server 5\bin\fspms-db-maintenance-tool.exe is a much better approach than restoring database from backups. Through that approach archived information (such as alerts and reports) is not geting discarded Database wich grew over…
  • Alexander I was monitoring the situation over last few days and wanted to report the update status. It looks that the size of the restored DB is relatively static for last 5 days at 7.8GB. I have not seen any significant number of Alerts or Reports before restoring DB, though. The only unique factor potentially afecting…
  • Any chance you coudl re-release the 12.40 installer with the embedded patch. Just to avoid confusion and forcing people to update just freshly released software version. You can ignore my post, I have not seen your reply to the identical request. I don't see an option to remove once posted reply
  • I noticed that the latest version PMC 12.21 listens on a secure port 443 unlike previous version which used port 80; hence will not see any new hosts until the PMS/PMC server firewall is configured to allow incoming trafic on port 443, or maybe only Client Security 12.20 attempts to communicate with the server on port 443.…
  • Thanks, you can believe me or not by when I was writing my previous reply when I expanded Documentation section I saw only header of Release Documents and no additional links and descriptions. I have tried Chrome50 and IE11 Andrzej
  • Tamas, Unfortunately I can't assist you with any answer to your question; however I want to hijack this thread and raise another imperfection of the PSB setup. In the past I declined an opportunity to test PSB due to lack of any serious central management and possibility to control used licenses. Lack of documentation is…
  • Thanks Tamas, A while ago I wrote a powershell script to backup my H2 database on reguar basis, so I am covered on that front. I inquired about possible scrubbing on the regular basis the garbage apparently collected in the H2 database over time. Executing the recover-db tool shrunk it from ~3.5GB to ~1.8GB and it looks…
  • Link posted above is not valid any longer, while another link refering this product https://www.f-secure.com/en_GB/web/business_gb/downloads/protection-service-for-business/latest does not contain any documentation.
  • Tuoppi9, Instuctions in post http://community.f-secure.com/t5/Business/Moving-Policy-Manager-Server-to/ta-p/68727 should give your the basic guideline If I were you, I woudl simply reinstall PMC/PMS software, after copying first the .pub and .prv keys on the new server and point the installer to them. New server ought to…
  • Thanks Vad, If I am not mistaken, workstation removed from local PM listing can still pull updates directly off f-secure.com for as long as the specific version of AV is supported by your company. If you are referring to 1. in Anti-virus mode Settings->Centralized management->Policy Manager Seerver settings or 2 in…
  • I see this was already answered; however I woudl strongly reccomend using 2 CPUs especially when you have larger number of nodes. With a single CPU performance was often affected. Our virtual server runs both PMS and PMC 11.30 (2012 not 2012R2 though) has dual 2.60GHz CPU 4GB, Ram We have close to 1600 users and Java on…
  • Issue was resolved shortly after, I just created this post to alert people about such short lasting inconvenience.
  • Vad, Option of clicking on flyer history is not good enough. User should be informed that the workstation is potentially infected. I have close to 1500 workstations and only others in my seats can imagine my pain of daily analysing all the alerts in the PMC. May you ask on my behalf for such enhancement in the future…
  • Vad, Popup at the start of the scan is displayed, I do not recall seeing one at the end of the scan, but honestly I was never looking for it. Popup window, showing brief scan results, was never present when a scheduled scan was executed (this applies to manually scheduled scans or those scheduled through Policy Management…
  • @Vad wrote: This exit code means that the scanner failed to open some objects during the scan, and this objects may still be infected. You can find the list of this objects in the scanning report. There is no doubt that some files will be always locked. The minimum list would include HIBERFIL.SYS PAGEFILE.SYS > Btw, I wish…
  • @dragos wrote: Go to PM console, open Tools, Preferences, Push Installations, Clear cache Thanks dragos, As a matter of fact problem with constantly growing DB was resolved somehow with upgrading Policy Management Console (unfortunately I do not recall if it was to the lastest 10.x or 11) Andrzej
  • Vad, In that case what would be your recommendation beside disabling scheduled scans? Unfortunately, majority of infection end up hiden in the Recycler (the meanest we experienced was the Trojan.Agent.AURC (virus)0 or burried in the browsers caches, subfolders of ...\Local Settings\temp\ or in ..\Application…
  • I am curious if the feature "Wake the computer to run this task" was added to the latest version of the PMC 11.10? Lack of this is a huge inconvenience. With Windows XP missed scheduled tasks (like nightly full scan) were simply ignored, while Windows 7 execute scheduled taks as soon as the user logs in (or wake up system…
  • Vad, It all started as part of SR ID:1-631674721] then continued as 1-638434078 Markku was trying to assit me, however so far we have not made any progress. Andrzej
  • Fendy, May I ask for adding this information to the officially published documentation? Andrzej You can check in regedit by going to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Data Fellows\F-Secure\Management Server 5 Note: In 32-bit environment, please omit the "Wow6432Node" Double-click "wrEnabled" and check if the value is…
  • Mathias, I kindly disagree with your latest post. Occasional, even daily system scanning does make sense Certain folders have tnedency of collecting garbage (including infections/malware which are not treated properly by F-Secure). I frequently see malware being detected and even claimed by Client Security as being…
  • It looks that the software self healed overnight. I can not reproduce that behavior any longer
  • Jelle, Have you selected restricted access for Web Reporting during the upgrade process? I can not find in the documentation what registry key is responsible for that setting, beside a note on Page 73 Note: Web Reporting is turned on and off during the installation of Policy Manager Server. Restricting access to the local…
  • Hy, If you are stuck with obsolete Wndows 2000, then your option might be using alterntive antivirus software offered by other vendors. If I recall correctly Avast still offers support for Windows 2000. Good luck Andrzej
  • Total F-Secure folder size (with all the subdirectories) is 25 GB
  • Just few jar files were left, I removed all the alerts and reports older than 2 days, DB size remained unchanged at 18.5 GB Andrzej
  • In the past I needed to uninstall F-S software from workstations which left Are you saying that jar files are not needed for that transaction? Initialy I set filter to a very large number (was not certain if the unslecting will do the same) Concluding all older reports and alerts were removed from the history
  • So far it looks that CS version 9.32 is the only one one supporting excluding processes. I still need answer to my last subtask of excluding from scanning registry keys Andrzej
  • It may sound like a duplicate inquiry similar to http://community.f-secure.com/t5/Management/Add-multiple-excluded-processes/td-p/15006, but the original question was never answered (regardless - the exclusions are needed or not)
