Open in new window

Symantec systems center is installed on Windows 2003 server. All the workstations in the domain are not protected from the server.  We can not load client list snap-in: the following error message is coming up "Symantec Antivirus could not configure NYCDC001 Client auto protect". i.e. NYCDC001 is the name of our server.

Please help.

So, you have the console installed on the 2003 server and when you launch the console, you get the error above?  Is this a new installation?  Why aren't the workstations being managed by the SAV server?

No. It is not a new installation. I am not sure if it ever worked before. This is an existing problem I encountered and need to find a solution. I was trying to load a clients AD snap-in in order to load all the clients, but it did not go to the correct groups( nycdc001).When we are trying to load a client protection - the error comes up. Please see the attached screen shot. I can not bring client list to go under the NYCDC001 tree.

It looks like the management console isn't installed properly.  I'd try either downloading the latest version (if you have support) or performing a repair.  If neither prove successful, uninstall the console and reinstall.  It just sounds like the snap-in is corrupt or the console installation.
