Hello,

I've got an SBS 2008, in the console under network - computers -
all the clients (except one) state (under security settings) not available.

I've searched a lot for a solution and found many, but nothings seems to work.
I have a Panda Endpoint AV with Panda Adminsecure (for anti-spam)

The clients are mixed XP/Vista/Win7 clients. Only one XP Pro pc states 'OK'
I really need  a quick fix for this (btw the server was migrated from sbs 2003 to sbs 2008)

Thanks alot! screen

Hello,

I would like you to please check on single client machine that is showing you not available, by disabling antivirus and firewall. If it show online, you have  to allow required ports in client firewall for the SBS server. e.g. PING

Thanks,
Sanjay Santoki

Hello,

I disabled the firewall and uninstalled the av but its still not showing ok. On the client that is working i cannot change the firewall settings because its managed by the sbs!?

Hello,

Sorry for the short reply, I was on EE Mobile..
On the client pc that shows 'ok' the firewall is managed by the server ( like it should be )
but on the other clients the firewall isn't managed by the server (or so it seems)
I can freely edit all settings.

I can't seem to find what of where the problem lies..
