I have done install the second mirror and set the computer group update to the secondary mirror server ip address, but the PC can't connect to the second mirror server.

does anybody have experience in secondary mirror using AEA? or this feature was not ready yet.

Unfortuately i havent had time to participate in testing the product
Therefor i might have missed settings from points that i mention below, so please correct me if i am wrong in that.
Keep in mind tho that this software is meant to be for (enterprise) adminsitrators so they should know

I am happy to see that the interface and possibilities are the same again as ADNM used to be, but updated to work better on the newest OS's, and i can use my SBC licence for it.
Thats a HUGE plus point

HOWEVER (yes i have always something to point out)
- On the website i have been looking for the administrator guides for endpoint security enterprise, not to be found
- In the HELP in the program itself i receive the error that the help.chm  file cant be found, and i browsed to the directory mentioned, and indeed no help file is present. I had chosen to install the english help items all.
- It would be nice that TEXT files wont be opened by IE (a browser!) but by its default text file viewer (most cases notepad).
  the mirror log is first downlaoded via IE and then automatically opened in notepad (talking about inefficient), while other text logfiles are opened directly in a browser.........
  Hypothetical situation:  What if the whole console is targeted by malicious party, where they aim to infect via a browser. They alter the log creation of the console with malicious code in the logfile, it opens in IE or a
  browser where the milicious code is executed because its a browser that handles files different from a text viewer. BAM infection

- When (requested since ADNM) will there be a ACTIVE DIRECTORY integration for user access to the console????  this is in an enterprise environment really wanted. Keeping a separate username/password list is very inefficient and hazardous.


This point is truely HORRIBLE again, specially since this was put in SBC correctly on extensive and multiple request.
- THE MIRROR CANT BE PLACED out of the installation directory for the console... for g*dsake people... What do you think of the administrators that handle this software? they are complete retards or something??
   IT IS SO NOT DONE TO PLACE USAGE FILES ON THE OS PARTITION OF THE SERVER. THIS PARTITION IS USUALLY A MIRRORED DISK MEANING THIS IS AN EXPANSIVE STORAGE LOCATION, YOU DO NOT STORE FAST CHANGING USER FILES THERE!!!! We have had this discussion already at the beta stage of SBC!!!!
  The only solution is to install the complete console on another partion, which in manny policy driven companies is not allowed, so PLEASE give us the ability to manually choose where we want the mirror to be placed!!

(IF this point has been mentioned and actually is adjustable then upfront i apologize for my ranting, but i have been clicking in a lot of places in the console but havent found such option) 

edit: i have chosen the expert install, but i must have missed this part then i guess....  ill chekc again

Hello WPN,

This is already implemented in the current installer.
Just select the Expert type of installation.

after my edit, i ran the avast enterprise administration setup again and i have no option to choose for a location to put the mirror files
i have choosen again to do a custom setup

where is this expert setting that you speak of?

edit:
I had left the express database in tact and with installation i had chosen to give the SA account a random password by the installer. During setup i couldnt get back on the excisting database so i had a new one.
now the console cant detect the server to login on (recurring problem from ADNM actually).


edit 2:
-  in the SBC there was a group where you could put computers that should not automaticly get a license (so no AV installed on them), where is this option now
- where can i see how many licenses are in use right now even tho no client is deployed?
