Symantec Management Console Upgrade

SCS Computing Facilities announces the implementation of the Symantec Management Console (SMC). This central management allows for Symantec version control, definition updates and scan control in order to protect the security of our community.

A new version of the Symantec client is needed to redirect the client to the new management server. You can manually download this upgrade by going to \\monolith\pc_dist\symantec\v10.02 and downloading the Setup executable.

SCS Computing Facilities will schedule automatic Symantec upgrades for all of the Windows hosts in the SCS Domain that have not been upgraded by July 7, 2006. An email notification will be sent to individuals prior to your machine being upgraded. After the upgrade a reboot of your machine will be necessary and will be done automatically.

Please contact the SCS Help Desk if there is a problem with the scheduled time of the upgrade for your machine, x8-4231 or

Thank you for your attention,

SCS Facilities Help Desk
