Unable to discover clients in etrust AV 7.1

Posted on 2006-05-19
Last Modified: 2008-01-09
I have installed etrust av from CA on to my server.  In the admin console i have setupmy subnet.  This is a small networked environment with 5 clients.  On day one (three days ago) I was able to see all clients and have assigned each client to the appropriate policy branch.  On day to there was only one client and the server visable in the subnet and reports show that no clients are protected.

I have checked that the firewall is off on each client and have stopped and restarted av services.  I have also tested that when a down load is user inniated, it does download from the server.  

Question:  What additional steps or measures can i take to discovery my clients so that I can manage them in the admin virus console and run reports as disared?

    I'd check the following:
    1. Make sure that your subnet scan is for the correct IP address range.
    2. If your pcs are not part of a domain, you will either need a user account with the same password on all the pcs, or you will need to modify the CA installation file ino6.icf file to allow the server IP address as a trusted server source.
    3. Check the General logs on the admin server. You will probably find that the system encountered some errors when trying to apply policies to the workstations.
