Hi,

GRC.DAT just need to be copied to the folder based on client OS. Take a look at the http://docs.redrocknet.com/kb/article.php?id=173 since the original guide is not available on the Symantec support site.

You can prepare login script that will copy GRC.DAT to the folder on clients from server for example, somehing like this:

net use z: //(server IP)/(Share name)
copy z:\grc.dat c:\<folder where grc.dat goes>

Best regards,
Vladimir

Vladmir,

  thanks for the responce, but we are trying to do this via GPO, because we have 500+ users that rotate on a regular basis, and some share machines. so to avoid having to run it on each machine indivdualy or with a notepad file with the IPs in it, we we hoping to find a script that would work in GPO so when a user logged on an off it would be taken care of.

Hi,

You can use those two lines of code in login script. GRC.dat is the same for all computers, you just need to copy it to the right place (and for this, just add those two lines in login script, that is all).

Hi,

By the way, Norton 7.5 is almost as you don't have any protection at all. This is old and outdated product, not supportted anymore. Please, move to the SAVCE 10 or SEP 11.

Best regards,
Vladimir
