Common Installation Configuration

Postby ptsolutions » Thu Mar 18, 2010 10:41 am

I currently use Symantec Endpoint Protection and would like to start selling AVG to my new customers. What is the common configuration for an office running Microsoft SBS 2008 with 4 end users?

Reviewing the features on the AVG website, I think the best route is to install Business Edition for the 4 end users and Email Server Edition for the SBS server running Exchange. Does that sound feasable? should we also install Business Edition on the server to scan the files as well since the end users will be saving thier docs on the server or should we install the File Server Edition on the server?

I'd probably just do AVG Internet Security Edition for 5 computers:

It covers your server and Exchange.

OK, that makes sense. I use a checkpoint hardware firewall. is there a way to disable the firewall feature in the Internet Security Edition? If so, does it warn the user that the computer is "NOT PROTECTED" such as Symantec does?

You can push out the installation using AVG Admin from the server, and simply deselect the firewall component. AVG will not complain about the firewall not being installed.

nice. I'm going to try that. For the Microsoft Small Business Server, do I push that from the AVG Admin as well? will it recognize it is a server running Exchange and install the Exchange add-in? Does it have to be in a different group?

You push out AVG to the server and workstations from AVG Admin and install the Exchange component separately on the server.

I find myself in the same boat and it is driving me crazy... where is the "install exchange component" located in ISBE 9.0? If it is not included, Where do I get it?

Thank you,
