Can't get the install to work. When it started the upgrade from 1.5 it did not see my ODBC connector. It showed a . instead in the list. I gave it a shot and continued. It uninstalled 1.5 and put the SQL DB into single user mode and crashed. I get the COMODO ESM Wizard ended prematurely because of an error.  What gives?

We do not use ODBC driver.
. that you have Sql instance without name. If your SQL instance has name the result will be:
.\Instancename

What version of SQL server do you have?
Could you connect to your SQL server with SQL Management studio?

Older versions of ESM used SQL Native ODBC driver for connecting to the SQL instance. I have used it on every install. We are using SQL 2005 Enterprise. It doesn't matter what I do at this point the install fails. I was able to install CESM 1.5.1 back to get us up and running, but it won't show workstations as online.

It seems 1.6 will not work with existing database. I ran the same setup giving a different database name and it installed fine. So the question is does everyone have to start all over with this install by creating a new database?

Another note: All agents that are currently installed configured to the 1.5.1 CESM will not work with 1.6. It will show workstations requesting to connect to the CESM, but if you accept and click on them it throws errors. You also see errors in the logs saying the agent is configured to another CESM 1.5.1.

We do not support SQL Enterprise.
So the correct procedure would be to install one more instance for SQL Express and use it for ESM work.

ESM might be supporting SQL Enterprise in upcoming release/s. Users might be able to configure and use the same.

Are you kidding me...??? ESM has been working on our version of SQL since beta. And now all the sudden it won't work with SQL 2005. Standard and Enterprise SQL 2005 are no different other than a few features. Come on guys your gonna have to do better than that.

If you ask me it seems like the update wasn't tested on a already working CESM with 1.5.1 agents already pushed.

Things found so far other than the install SQL issues with previous DB. I have always used SQL 2005 with every version of CESM and never had an issue upgrading. Matter of fact there was documentation on how to setup ODBC SQL Native drivers in your CESM documentation. I am not sure why you would say SQL 2005 STD or ENT isn't supported. Just a reminder to you that CESM is a Enterprise product and should work in a Enterprise world. Anyways to get around it I created a new DB (In my same SQL Server 05) uninstalled all agents and reinstalled so I they would connect to the new DB. Here is a short list of problems and feature request:

1. Pushing config when user is logged off is not working. I still get the Insufficient system resources exist to complete requested service. Agent and CIS were updated on machines that were tested for config push.

2. Local Admin Mode - Two issues here. First, local admin should be bound to the CESM and not to the local admin of that workstation or laptop. Second, a user should not have to switch to local admin mode to run a simple virus scan or perform an update.

3. There is some confusion in the CESM of CIS Set Update URL and CIS Set Update Hosts List. A admin may see CIS Set Update URL thinking it is the Definition URL update.

4. The CIS Set Predefined Config Antivirus Security is still not working. It gives a invalid parameter when pushed out to users.

5. Notification Monitor is a bit out of control at times. Constantly informing me every 15 minutes that a user’s virus signature is up-to-date. It builds rapidly after a few hours.

6. The Start Page is still useless. It says network computers at risk!  How and what? The pie chart doesn’t show anything useful and the Endpoint Infections square grey box is pointless. The start page should show if there are risk and should point to the machine and show what risk or infection was found.

7. The command prompt is lacking in areas. I am unable to open an .exe or use simple commands for example gpupdate /force to sync a remote machine to the domain controller.

8. I should have the ability to cancel a task in the Task Result Manager. Every once in a while there will be a task that hangs up and I have no way to kill that task other than restarting CESM.

9. There should be a way in the config to set Scheduled virus scans on the user’s laptops. If I missed this somewhere I apologize.

10. Scheduled task should give the options to run a task every hour or in minutes.

11. Check for available updates doesn’t do anything on the Start Page. That wasn’t working in any of the other versions as well.

12. There should be a way to delete a computer from the Computers List. I want to delete not Hide...

This is all I have so far. If I come up with more items I will post.

Thanks,

Hi, etaftm.

There are no many difference between 1.51 and 1.6. Only Chinese added and some other fixes.

I am not sure why you would say SQL 2005 STD or ENT isn't supported. Just a reminder to you that CESM is a Enterprise product and should work in a Enterprise world.

ESM documentation claims:

System Installation Requirements
 
The Central Service computer (or Server PC) requires Microsoft Windows 2003/2008 Server with .NET Framework 2.0 and local Microsoft SQL Server 2005/2008 Express.

Quote
1. Pushing config when user is logged off is not working. I still get the Insufficient system resources exist to complete requested service. Agent and CIS were updated on machines that were tested for config push.

Update CIS to the latest version.

Quote
2. Local Admin Mode - Two issues here. First, local admin should be bound to the CESM and not to the local admin of that workstation or laptop. Second, a user should not have to switch to local admin mode to run a simple virus scan or perform an update.

It will be implemented in later CIS version.

Quote
3. There is some confusion in the CESM of CIS Set Update URL and CIS Set Update Hosts List. A admin may see CIS Set Update URL thinking it is the Definition URL update.

Agree with you, but it's backward compatibility requirement (For CIS 3.xx)

Quote
4. The CIS Set Predefined Config Antivirus Security is still not working. It gives a invalid parameter when pushed out to users.

What version of CIS do you use?

Quote
5. Notification Monitor is a bit out of control at times. Constantly informing me every 15 minutes that a user’s virus signature is up-to-date. It builds rapidly after a few hours.

Update CIS to the latest version.

Quote
6. The Start Page is still useless. It says network computers at risk!  How and what? The pie chart doesn’t show anything useful and the Endpoint Infections square grey box is pointless. The start page should show if there are risk and show point to the machine and what risk or infection was found.

Quote
7. The command prompt is lacking in areas. I am unable to open an .exe or use simple commands for example gpupdate /force to sync a remote machine to the domain controller.

What result do you have on the  gpupdate /force command?
Quote
9. There should be a way in the config to set Scheduled virus scans on the user’s laptops. If I missed this somewhere I apologize.

You can schedule this task with scan for the user's laptop.

Quote
10. Scheduled task should give the options to run a task every hour or in minutes.

For what purpose?

Quote
11. Check for available updates doesn’t do anything on the Start Page. That wasn’t working in any of the other versions as well.

Works for me. You computer should not be behind the proxy server. Proxy settings will be available in the next release.

Quote
12. There should be a way to delete a computer from the Computers List. I want to delete not Hide...

This issue under discussion for the present time.

Older versions of CESM had instruction for ODBC drivers. That's the only reason I have been using it and it worked fine.

1. Pushing config when user is logged off is not working. I still get the Insufficient system resources exist to complete requested service. Agent and CIS were updated on machines that were tested for config push.

Update CIS to the latest version.

Did you read what I typed? It says Agent and CIS were updated on machines that were tested for config... They were updated to the latest version.



Quote
4. The CIS Set Predefined Config Antivirus Security is still not working. It gives a invalid parameter when pushed out to users.


What version of CIS do you use?

Latest version



Quote
7. The command prompt is lacking in areas. I am unable to open an .exe or use simple commands for example gpupdate /force to sync a remote machine to the domain controller.


What result do you have on the  gpupdate /force command?

Nothing happens.


Quote
9. There should be a way in the config to set Scheduled virus scans on the user’s laptops. If I missed this somewhere I apologize.

You can schedule this task with scan for the user's laptop.

This needs to be in the config. All my users have laptops and are in and out.



Quote
10. Scheduled task should give the options to run a task every hour or in minutes.

For what purpose?

Once again all my users have laptops. I need to have the ability to set CIS to push out a config every 30 minutes to an hour to make sure everyone that connects or VPN into the network gets the latest config.


Quote
11. Check for available updates doesn’t do anything on the Start Page. That wasn’t working in any of the other versions as well.


Works for me. You computer should not be behind the proxy server. Proxy settings will be available in the next release.

I am not behind a proxy server. When I click on Check for Updates on the Start Page, nothing happens.

It appears the version posted on this thread for CIS is incorrect. The latest version should be CIS 4.1.2673.936 and not CIS 4.1.152745.936. This could be the reason for having problems with CIS config push while user not logged in. I will test shortly and let you know.
