    Using Symantec System Center as detox1978 suggests, I do the following to schedule my client scans:
    Select the Primary Server for group.
    Right click > all tasks > norton antivirus > scheduled scans...
    client scan tab
    create a new scan here and it will apply to all clients

    Hope this helps. If you don't have Symantec System Center or can't find it, let us know and we'll track it down.

    Not sure.

    - is there anything in the event log?
    - check your timezone, maybe daylight savings is affecting it (probably not)
