Hi,

     during the Christmas break we had a server restart which installed some updae to SBS 2008 and to Avira Server Security.

Now it appears to be working except that I cannot anymore connect to the "Avira Management Console Frount End" - I receive the message "MMC Could not create the snap-in".

Whereas before it used to request a password - Now I see "MMC could not create the snap-in"  ?

Any ideas ?

Happy New Year - ChrisColeman.

I have seen it before. The easiest solution would be to uninstall and reinstall the console.

Do not worry you will not lose any configuration as normally when you uninstall it you get an option to save configuration.

Even if you somehow lose the configuration its a doddle to get it up and running pretty much straight away.

Sounds good  - Will try it on Saturday - Configuration data was my main concern - Thanks Chris.
