McAfee Mangement Console

By techview0505 ·
I am using the console to push out the configuration and the dats. I hear that you can put in the login script so every time a user logins on a PC, that PC gets the update and configuration from the console. Is anyone using the McAfee Console for his or her network?

Log In Updates and Configures McAfee

by cmooney In reply to McAfee Mangement Console

We hired a consultant to make a recommendation about anti virus, with the exact approach you mentioned. The recommended Total Virus Defense Suite from NAI. They installed it and gave us the procedure to do so on the workstations. At first it seemed to work fine. At log in it would check for the existence of Virus Scan and if it didn't find it, it would install it. It if was installed, it would check to see if there were updates and if the server had a more recent update it would push it out. The challenges are that not all computers are treating the process the same. On some the e-mail scan is disabled and can't be enabled. On others it will enable, but on the next log in it will be disabled. The consultant insists that it is a result of our "unique" environement and they have been unresponsive. Our support from Network Associates is limited to the on line and e-mail requests. I e-mailed NAI a week ago and so far they haven't responded. I ran the e-mail tests available at and the majority of our workstations failed to catch and or stop the simulations.
