Trying to update sophos - reverts back to older version
Im late to the sophos upgrade party. Im trying to update a 2003 vanilla network to the latest version of sophos. I have updated (with much grief) to the latest version of End point control. I am trying to deploy the new client to all the workstations but this appears to be a bit hit and miss. I think on some machines the new client is working successfully, however others i have tried updating have reverted back to the older version.
I cant tell if its a server problem or a client problem. Would be grateful for any help on this issue. Thanks

I suspect you'd be best advised to talk to Sophos directly; I haven't come across the problem you mention with Sophos updating.
That said, I would be looking at the updating policies that apply to the PC's; I can't see why Sophos would allow a policy to downgrade the AV, but you never know.

I think i may have cured the problem. It appears that within the groups which i have set up to syncronise with AD, i left "Legacy Updating" checked in group details (Right click on group).
Since unchecking that option, the machines appear to stick with 9.5

Glad you sorted it, I have little to do with the policy side of Sophos here so I couldn't be of much help.
Thanks for the update, it's always good to know something got sorted.
