    Uncheck drives to be remotely checked too in the intercheck tab properties. Our [county] setup by default does a full check every boot or a pre defined time - dunno why this suddenly became apparent before the holidays.

    We're soon to upgrade to v6 here.

    V6 Is good, and has excellent management capabilities. I have encountered reletively few machines where it has a few problems installing. The problems I have encountered have all been caused my Microsoft having XP SP2 turning SFS back on.

    Re: Sophos v5 upgrade problems.

    We have Sophos V5 and had problems with running Sims.net. It took nearly 15 minutes for program to open up.

    We contacted Sophos support and they suggested to set the exclude remote files option set.

    This excludes all network files, which is fine if you set a scheduled scan on the servers over night.

    It now takes only 3 seconds to open Sims.net. We still have a few problems with regards to workstations running slow though. We have found that the newer machines with more RAM are fine but we are not going to upgrade all the machines just so that Sophos runs faster.

    Also had the same problem with sims and sophos only way to get past it was by killing the sav processes.

    Re: Sophos v5 upgrade problems.

    Just reviving this topic as I have a query.

    1. RouterNT.exe is currently running around 70mb in the task manager which seems a bit excessive, especially with a peak mem usage of 110mb. Is everyone elses taking up as much resources ?

    Are you using Enterprise Console?

    Re: Sophos v5 upgrade problems.

    Yes I am using enterprise console on Windows 2000 server.

    I had a strange feeling it was to do with my hard drive being defragmented but even after defraging it continues to sky rocket. When the server gets too slow I kill the process but it comes back very small at about 5mb but then just keeps rising to 70mb.

    And yes I have tried a restart, that was the first thing I did.

    That has shrunk the usage down to a steady 14mb. Still seems big, I have 115 computers in the console.

    Yeah, it does seem rather bloated.

    Ah! You didn't say it was server side you had the problem. I thought you were on about the clients!

    Exactly the same as we have. I rang Sophos and they gave me step by step instructions.

    1. Stop the "Sophos Certification Manager" and then the "Sophos Message Router" in that order.

    2. Browse to C:\Program Files\Sophos\Remote Management System\Router

    3. rename the "Envelopes" folder to "envelopesold"

    4. Restart "Sophos Message Router" then "Sophos Certification Manager"

    The problem occurs because the envelopes are the messages sent to the client machines. If you change a lot of settings many times then you get a lot messages being sent to clients. Only one message gets sent at a time and so can get a backlog if machines are turned off. After about half an hour the changes should take place and messages back to a minimum.

    Hope this helps. I have had to do this about 4 times now!!!!

    Just one of the reasons we are getting rid of Sophos in April.

    What alternatives have you considered?

    We are really tied to our LEA but they are thinking of getting McAfee. The ERYC has gone accross to McAfee and they seem to like it for schools.
