deployement and design guide

I need a solution

Hi chaps,

I need to provide some consultancy to a customer and they have the following setup.

Environment

  • 220 sites in one country
  • Business has grown by acquisition, so standardisation is low and complexity is high
  • Multiple network configurations
    • MPLS with direct connectivity to SEPM
    • MPLS with VPN to SEPM network
    • MPLS with no connectivity to SEPM network
    • Single circuits with VPN to SEPM network
    • Single circuits with no connectivity to SEPM network
  • Wide range of available bandwidths across networks – ADSL to FTTP
  • Approx. 1500 endpoints
    • 99% Windows. A few Apple clients
    • Win 7/8/10 – Mostly 10
  • Multiple AD forests in place, and 800+ endpoints not in AD
  • Ivanti as the primary means of endpoint management
  • 7-8 different varieties of AV currently in use, at varying levels of management
    • Sophos
    • Webroot SecureAnywhere / Kaseya
    • Windows Defender
    • AVG
    • McAfee
    • BitDefender
    • F-Prot
    • ESET

SEP 14.2 setup

  • Licenses purchased
  • SEPM installed within Customer network
    • VM on VMWare infrastructure
    • Hosted
    • Single instance, not HA
  • SEPM Cloud not currently enrolled
  • Approx. 30 clients deployed as a pilot
  • Planning to deploy via Ivanti
  • Only deploying to desktops & laptops – not phones or tablets

I need to deliver the following :

  • Review and input into deployment strategy –
  • SEPM configuration
    • Client grouping and mgmt.
    • Policy creation – how to build container
    • Location-based logic
    • Etc.
  • Removal of existing AV programs – best way to remove non symantec AV from 1500 machines
    • Options available, testing and package-building
  • SEP Cloud – pros & cons of enabling and best practices

no display on ext. monitor after SEE 11.1.3 or 11.2 installed

I need a solution

i have some Dell Latitude 5470, 5480 and 5490 laptops with Win10 Pro connected to a usb-c docking station. prior to installing SEE if i powered on the laptop or restarted with the lcd closed it would bootup and i get display on my ext. monitors. After i installed SEE 11.1.3 or 11.2 and the drive gets encrypted now when i power on or restart with lcd closed i go not get any display on the ext. mon.  they act like they are in hibernation with the power button led coming on and then going dim over and over. if i open the lcd on the laptop i see a constant led lit on the power button but no display on the laptop lcd.

if i press the space bar and type in user name, press tab and type in pwd it does continue to boot to the desktop.  

per Dell the docking station does not get recognized until during the Windows boot so with Encryption in place it will not boot to Windows until you login to SEE. yes i knew that.

any ideas or is this just the way it is supposed to work?

any respone is appreciated

thank you

Trying to install remote indexers…JRE path??????

I need a solution

Once again no instructions…just run this and fail…

Trying to install the indexers.msi. Picked path to where it needs to go but next question is to “Select the directory of the JRE you wish to use.” I picked a JRE and get a “Could not find the location of jvm.dll. Please ensure that the JRE directory path is correct.”.

THE FILE IS THERE! DO I NEED A DIFFERENT VERSION OR IS THIS JUST A WASTED APPLICATION! Supposed to be stand alone.

This was easy in 14.5.

Uninstall password

I need a solution

Hello all!
I’m trying to uninstall Symantec Endpoint Protection from an old laptop
I’m being asked to type in a password, which I don’t have
I’ve looked online for solutions but without success..nothing works!
Apparently Windows 10 blocked or disabled or whatever (I really don’t understand much about software and computers in general) the Symantec Endpoint Protection and now I can’t get rid of it!!
Please, does anyone have any idea what I can do?
Thanks!

Clarification on EOL for SEP 12.1

I need a solution

Article https://support.symantec.com/en_US/article.TECH239… state SEP 12.1 will be EOL on April 3rd 2019. Specifically it says “This is the point when we stop doing bug fixes for the product.”

My question is, what does Symantec consider a “Bug Fix”? Does this mean any vulnerabilities (CVEs) will be left unpatched or does it mean things like funcionality bugs will not be fixed? If it means no vulnerabilities will be patched, is this something that will be avaialble with the purchase of extended support? What does extended support provide?

I see all support expires in 2021, but it seems crazy that a security company would allow their software to “work” for 2 years with multiple vulnerabilties.

We are currently working on removing version 12 but we have a very large footprint and multiple SEPM consoles to upgrade. If we knew vulnerabilties would continue to be patched that would allow for a smoother timeline to upgrade.
