Where do you put your SBS in Trend 3.0 Dashboard Security settings?

    I wanted to know where people are putting their SBS 2003 systems within
    Trend 3.0 Dashboard security settings. Are you leaving it under the
    Exchange server? Are you also listing it under the servers? It seems
    redundant to put it under servers. I noticed that if you do put it under the
    server section it will have a 2nd scheduled scanning time.

  2. In
    When you do the setup, it should put the server itself in the Servers
    section, and that's fine - not sure why you'd think this was redundant. I
    generally just leave it to do what it wants. The Exchange settings are
    different (you just see the server name, IIRC).

    These are all upgrades from 2.0 and the SBS is not automatically being put
    into the Servers section. As far as redundant, go to Scan, scheduled scans
    and schedule. Look at all of the sections that are setup for scans. If the
    SBS is in the exchange and the server sections it is under 2 separate
    schedules for scanning. I know that I could disable one of them but I would
    think the Trend has a best practice so this issue would not come up. That
    is the reason for my posting. I hope to contact Trend this week to get
    their feedback but I wanted hear what the community was doing.

  4. Be careful, you will have two separate entries for your SBS server, one for
    the server, and one for Exchange. If this was an upgrade from 2.0, it should
    have retained your previous setup. If not, go ahead and add your SBS server
    under default servers -- but DON'T delete the listing for SBS as an Exchange
    server --- this is a completely different set of configuration options!

    I have deleted the SBS from the default server already. It is still in the
    Exchange section. Am I missing some advantage by doing that?

  6. Your SBS should be listed twice. There are two components to CSM -
    Officescan and Scanmail.

    The Servers and Desktops groups are for Officescan - the file space
    anti-virus settings.
    The <name of your sbs> is for configuring Scanmail - your email antivirus
    and antispam settings.

    Hi John,

    You need them both.

    On an upgrade, existing groups are retained, but some of the configuration
    selections within the group or for individual computers within that group
    may no longer validbe valid. You can read about it in the documentation.

    I'd recommend moving any server OSs to the 'servers' group, and any desktops
    to the 'desktops' group, and configuring the settings of each group

    Some things to keep in mind - changes from CSM 2.

    a) settings are made at the group level, and apply to all computers in that
    group. No individual 'per computer' settings are allowed anymore.
    b) you can create additional groups - the easiest way is to copy either the
    'server' or 'desktop' default group. This allows you to group computers that
    need similar settings to each other, but different from another group. e..g.
    perhaps a 'mobile' group would be a good idea.

    Both Officescan and Scanmail are still in existence as separate products,
    the only 'bringing together' is that you can access the configurations by
    starting from the same place.
