Hi,

Great news!!!!!!!!.... This issue occured due to liveupdate. It started off with Pending system changes and then once the SEP client rolled back it must have installed Liveupdate and was not completed.
So next time you tried installing SEP.. it was rolling back with Liveupdate related errors in the install log file.

-> I hope the issue is resolved now and everything is working fine..

The error on the server, I believe is as follows:

the wizard was interrupted before symantec endpoint protection could be completed.

From the log file :
"Symantec Endpoint Protection -- Symantec Endpoint Protection has detected that there are pending system changes that require a reboot."

You have to reboot the system before you install Symantec.

Hi,

Please follow this document to edit the registry entry. Once done, the installation will go smoothely.

It states we need to restart even though the entry is removed.

I will update after a restart today.  I will restart & verify the entries are removed and then retry the install.  I am installing from the MSI that was created for the installs.  I am doing it this method so that i can remove the email scanning.

Ok on the server I deleted the rebootrequired registry key and went ahead with the installation from the MSI.

it started the install and when it went to creating the install cache it stopped and rolled back.

funny thing is i cannot locate the log in the %temp%

i have not been able to restart this box yet.

Rebooted the server.  I attempted with the MSI installer.  Same thing.  I then removed the registry entries as it states in the link.  No go.

I have attached the logs.

Just for a test I also ran the setup.exe as you will see in the logs.

Weird.

Thanks

Hi,

Now the issue is not more with the "pending restart error". As we have already removed the registry and restarted the machine.
-Now it is getting stuck at Liveupdate configuration and registration.
-Make sure you remove all the symantec folders.

-> c:\documents & settings\all users\application data\ and delete the symantec folder in there.
->c:\program files\common files\ and delete symantec shared folder
->c:\program files and delete all symantec or sav or symantec antivirus folders.
-> Now try to install the package.

Now what I am worried about is that I *do not*  want to break any of the following products that are installed on the server:

Backup Exec 11d
B E System Restore 2010
Symantec Endpoint protection w/ 25 clients managed

I will test on an image of the server I have this afternoon.

Cheers

Our engineer on site re-installed the Live update service since the clients were not getting their updates.

We then tried to reinstall and it worked like a charm.

Thanks!
