Include F-secure Client Security 9.20 on a reference computer (Wim-file, MDT, WDS)

Hello!

 

I'am setting up a reference computer with Win7pro x64 sp1 + Office 2207 and some std programs. I also installed F-secure.

9.20. Later i rolled out the image on 2 new computers and they got the same UID. It did'nt help to run Resetuid either.

We have F-secure Policy Magager 10 for central administration.

 

What do i have todo? it would had been nice to include F-secure in the image also.

 

Best Regards

LG

Hi larsg31!

 

Client Security 9.20 fsmautil.exe provides a possibility to generate new UID for the host. It supports two algorithms of generation: SMBIOS and random. In some cases SMBIOS GUID can be the same for several hosts. But you still can choose randomly generated GUID. I think, this could help in your situation.

Hi, tested with the same configuration, but i used the smbios. The cloned pc got another uid.

 

So can we add the 9.20 on a "master", then clone the image?

Hi,

 

please always use SMBIOS ID. If you installed 9.20 on top of an existing master with an old F-Secure that was using UID then the UID will stay in use (and be the same when using the image).

 

Use FSMAUTIL from commandline to get a list of options.

 

If you still have the same SMBIOS IDs please open a support ticket so that R&D can exclude those BIOSes from automatic generation.
