Live update – content is 12GB

I need a solution

Hi,

Not sure if this is the right place to post this, but since I didn’t find a forum related to “live update administrator” I am posting here.

To the point…

First thing to know, I am new to everything Symantec. so, I am doing a lot of guessing and probably using wrong terminology so apologies in advance.

I installed a fresh new “live update administrator” server and configured it. I chose to download only “SEP manager”managed clients updates, since all our clients are managed and there is no need to download updates for unmanaged clients.

I decided to split the updates into two separate distribution centers, one strictly for content updates, the second strictly for client updates. after running for the first time a download schedule and distribute schedule (total of 4 schedule, download and distribute for content, the same for client), I immediately checked the distribution centers I configured, and here is where I am puzzled:

content distribution is 12 GB.

client distribution is 85m MB.

I am assuming content is virus definitions etc. why is it so big?

Ghost error during restoring

I need a solution

Good morning, Inside the company i work for we got many cnc siemens machines with a pc windows 7 and the ghost suite integrated. After a blackuot i made a backup of the 2 partitions contained inside the ssd and after that i tried to restore an old partition backup. Here i made an error, i pressed restore entire hdd and i choose the partition file. After 2 seconds i got an error from the ghost console. Now, i got the hdd without anything inside.

Can I uninstall a software(.exe) on a client?

I need a solution

Hi, all.

With Software Management solution, I am able to deliver software to my users. I also understand that we can uninstall software on user’s PC if we discovered they are using software that they are not supposed to?

Question is, how? If it is an msi installation, we can do msiexec /u <msi package> quick delivery task from Notification Server but how about exe installations, what can we do to uninstall exe installation software?

Any help would be appreciated.

Missing partition resize options

I need a solution

Hi guys,

We’re trying to update our win10 master and captured our customized installation. We don’t have any problem with the capture, no errors or warning. When I try to create a deployment task (using a copy of the one we use for our 1803 master), I can add the *.gho I’ve just created. But when I go to the advanced options for resizing partitions, none are listed (I should have 3 listed). The 3 partitions are created if I use the *.gho but I really need to resize them.

Does someone here ever encountered this problem ? What am I missing ? Thanks for your help !

Error -99 during imaging process

I need a solution

Hi all, my company is currently experimenting with Ghost Solution Suite. After I set up the boot disk, installed the agent and automation folder in the client pc, and configured the PXE configuration, I am faced with the error -99 during the image capturing process. For reference, the status code was -1073741819.

On another client PC, when I am capturing the image, there was an error about unable to access Linux partition 3. 

On the client PCs, I have disabled Firewall and antivirus(mcafee) and allowed port 402. On the Server, I have allowed port 402 but due to IT restrictions I can’t disable the Firewall.

We are actually planning to purchase GSS if we are confident that it can successfully image and deploy an image. Would appreciate any help.

Difference between partition admin users configured on Default partition and Admin Partition

Question: What is the difference between partition admin users configured on Default partition from the ones created on Admin Partition?

Answer:

1) AP users configured from Default partition are first created on Default partition and then bound to a Admin partition.

But for the other case, you need to first switch to the admin partition and create the user in that partition itself.

2) You can only login to ADC through NSIP and SNIP of default partition using the default partition user admin . Whereas you can only login to ADC through SNIP of Admin partition using admin partition created user.

3) You can bind user defined command policies for default partition user. But for admin partition specific user can have only 4 pre-defined command policies to choose from.

Admin Partitions | Partition ID Gets Skipped

Q: On “show ns partition” output, we sometimes see partition ID assignment is not sequential / IDs getting skipped. Is this a problem ?

A:Subject to memory availability one can create up to 511 admin partitions manually.

A partition ID is assigned to each partition upon creation and is used for internal tracking (this is not a user defined parameter).

Partition IDs are assigned from 1 to 511, however if there is an error (for any reason) during partition creation or a partition is deleted then partitioned will be skipped, these are reused later once 511 is reached.

Example:

Add partition parta … success | partition:ID1

Add partition partb … success | partition:ID2

Add partition partc… failed | partition:ID3 (Skipped)

Add partition partd… success | partition:ID4


//Assume the one below is 510th partition created it will be assigned partitionID:511

Add partition partx success | partitionID:511

//So, the actual 511th partition will now be assigned partitionID:3 as that was skipped previously

Add partition party .. will be assigned partitionID3

Q: Do these skipped partition IDs have any resource consumption until freed / reused.

A:Resources are only consumed by active partitions, skipped partition IDs do not have any bearing on resource consumption.


Example:

==

In the following output partitionID 1 to 30 and 34 is skipped (for any reason)

> show ns partition

1) Name: a

Partition ID: 31

Max BW : 10240 Kbps

Max Conn :1024 Max Mem: 700 MB

2) Name: b

Partition ID: 32

Max BW : 10240 Kbps

Max Conn :1024 Max Mem: 700 MB

3) Name: c

Partition ID: 33

Max BW : 10240 Kbps

Max Conn :1024 Max Mem: 700 MB

4) Name: d

Partition ID: 35

Max BW : 10240 Kbps

Max Conn :1024 Max Mem: 5 MB

Done

>

Now if you check using nsconmsg you can see memory use is only by the active partitions, no memory is in use for skipped partition IDs (1-30 or 34)
