Q&A: Symantec Server Configuration – Where do I tell a client computer to look for a different symantec server?

Question by JohnnyNY: Symantec Server Configuration – Where do I tell a client computer to look for a different symantec server?
I have a SBS 2003 server running Symantec Antivirus enterprise, and for some reason 2 of the clients on the network think that our old NT server is still the antivirus server so they are not getting updates and stuff. I can’t figure out where to go to change this. please help!

Try this: If the parent server is Windows NT or 2000, then copy the Grc.dat file from the VPHOME shared folder on the parent server. By default, the VPHOME shared folder is pointing to C:\Program Files\SAV on the parent server.

See the link below for more information. It will tell you where to place the file for various versions of Symantec and how to edit the registry if you have to.

The three boxes on the left can house up to 6 x 3.5" drives.
Each box can be RAID0/RAID1/JBOD and a variety of other modes using 2 HDs.

Those two tiny boxes are not to be underestimated — via eSATA connection and build-in RAID, they outperform all other NAS. At a fraction of the price. And in most cases, you just plug in existing drives. works with NTFS, XFS or any Linux EXT format. And USB — if you use a laptop.

OTOH, the "big" box on the left is a real Linux-based NAS server with Gigabit Ethernet interface — but won’t be as speedy as those eSATA boxes. The built-in DVD-RW drive and the ability to place this box far away from my desktop PC & eSATA drives makes this a useful addition. I might add a second LG NAS box — one for occasional backup services, one for day-to-day network activity.
The NAS also helps me to backup my MSI netbook and possibly I could burn CD/DVD from the netbook via this NAS
