FS Server Security 10.01 + WinSrv 2003 = Problems

A few weeks back I tried to install Server Security 10.00 on a 32 bit WinSrv 2003 Std Ed (VMWare server with 1CPU, 4GB ram, plenty of disk), but after finishing the install and rebooting, the server becomes non-responsive with 100% CPU usage. Solution: Uninstalling SS 10.00.

 

Noticing that Server Security 10.01 has fixed a usability issue ("CSEP-600 System is not usable after installing SS/ESS 10"), I tried to install SS 10.01 on the same server. After the install and reboot, the system is left unusable, with 100% CPU usage.

 

I have tried to turn off Real Time Scanning, all the different protection features (DeepGuard, Browsing Protection etc) but the system still consumes 100% CPU. The process that eats the most CPU is fssm32.exe. but a few of the other FS processes (fsaua.exe, fsav32.exe and fsm32.exe) sporadically top the CPU usage list.

 

The server in question is running Cisco Secure ACS, but no other programs or services.

 

With the server being used to authenticate remote access to our systems, I have to uninstall F-Secure SS 10.01 to get it back in working condition, but it would be much appreciated if anyone has a clue as to what we can do to make F-Secure SS 10.01 run smoothly. I will run FSDiag before uninstalling to get some diagnostics...

 

Thanks in advance.

Re: FS Server Security 10.01 + WinSrv 2003 = Problems

Solution found:

After talking to the tech responsible for the server, I was allowed RDP access and had a look around on the server. Turns out that the installed version of VMWare-Tools was outdated and that Windows Update had not been run in almost 6 months. By upgrading VMWare-Tools and running Microsoft Update in addition to adding one more virtual CPU core to the server, it is now running just fine with Server Security 10.01.

 

As I did both the VMWare-Tools upgrade, Microsoft Update and CPU core addition in the same update/reboot cycle, I can't really say which of the three that solved the problem, but the server is running happily now.

Hello Popeye,

 

To find out the reason of your issue, we'll need fsgk32.exe and fssm32.exe debug logs. Please, contact support for the instructions/debug binaries.

 

Best regards,
