I have just created a second Norton AntiVirus server management group
for departmental servers: "UVM AntiVirus 2". The purpose of this group
is to increase the amount of control that departmental server
administrators have over their AntiVirus solution, while ensuring that
all managed servers get frequent antivirus definition and product updates.
Servers in this group will receive daily updates of virus definitions,
emergency definition updates on demand, immediate scan-engine updates
(as they become available), real-time filesystem protection, and weekly
drive sweeps (Sunday at midnight). Server admins will be able to modify
or add to these settings. As an added benefit, these servers will have
access to Symantec Quarantine, which assists in the cleaning of infected
Because proper management of an AntiVirus solution requires constant
attention, I would encourage all server admins to join this group.
Please contact me if you are interested.
