Problems downloading updates for the antivirus engine after installing FSSMC Hotfix Rollup 5 and FSE Service Pack 2 Rollup 2

September 15th, 2010 Comments off

Some customers have reported problems downloading updates for the antivirus engine after installing the Forefront Server Security Management Console (FSSMC) Hotfix Rollup 5 and the Forefront Security for Exchange Server (FSE) Service Pack 2 Rollup 2.

The basic symptom is that antivirus engine updates fail. If you are experiencing this problem, please refer to the Microsoft support KB article #2410444 for information on how to resolve the problem. The KB will guide you through steps that will enable FSE to use the previous version of the antivirus engine and updates until a permanent fix is created.

If you continue having problems after trying the measures in the KB article, you should contact CSS for additional help.

Manually updating engines and definitions in Forefront Protection 2010 for Exchange Server and SharePoint

July 30th, 2010 Comments off

Hello,

 

We get quite a few calls from administrators who ask if they can manually update their Forefront Protection 2010 for Exchange Server (FPE) and Forefront Protection 2010 for SharePoint scan engines.

 Well, the short answer is yes, but the long answer is a bit longer, so in order to provide guidance to those of you who wish to manually update the FPE/FPSP scan engines and definitions as part of your Forefront Protection defense strategies, Microsoft has provided a comprehensive set of instructions via the following Knowledge Base article:

 http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2292741

 So, whatever your reason for not using automatic updating, you can follow the steps outlined in the KB to manually update Forefront Protection’s scan engines.

 Included in the KB is a sample PowerShell script that you can customize to synch with your specific network parameters and adjust to your environmental needs.

 Regards,

Robert McCarthy
