Cannot get into symantec system center console after I uninstalled it off server and reloaded
Posted on 2008-11-06
We are switching to Trend Micro and I uninstalled the symantec system console and everything out of the registry and everywhere off the server and that was the primary server. Then I had forgot that I needed it to uninstall off the client machines in a batch file. So I reinstalled it on the server but now I am getting error: Can't communicate with the server group Verify network connectivity and that machines are operating within the group. I checked out other people having this issue and tried everything suggested as well what symantec suggests and even microsofts suggestion. Alls I wanted to do was to uninstall Symantec off all the clients. Trend Micro has the ability to uninstall symantec but it does not fully uninstall it still leaves files behind that you cannot delete, I think its in regards to live update and its locked from the previous console where it was set to not allow anyone to uninstall. I do not have time to uninstall off all the clients so would rather do this remotely. I know of the utility windows install cleanup but that does each individual machine. I just need to get into the client administration and can't. I have tried recreating the server, clearing the cache etc. It picks up the old settings but gives me that error as stated above.
Thanks in advance
