We would really appreciate having options for the KAV install. Namely, skip if offline, or the ability to exclude times when an installation can occur. I've had a couple client machines reboot 3x on them this morning because they didn't leave their machine on last night, and I would really like to avoid this. Being able to exclude times when AV installation occurs, or at least just skip if offline, would be great.
Reviewed the possibility to get this released as a hot-fix. Unfortunately this requires user interface change and so pushing this to future release. In the mean time, to mitigate this problem , please warn the user by sending message using the Agent procedure.
Future release meaning 1.4?
Meghana, We also can't schedule a pre-install procedure. We tried that. The best we can give our users is "sometime over the next two weeks".
This should be a bit higher priority than the next release considering we have to reinstall client software on all the machines.
@Brandon. Recommendation here is to schedule the installation during OFF HOURS and warn the user about it . "Tonight" or "weekend" etc... We understand the restriction its imposing , however pushing this to KAV1.4 after evaluating the priority compared with other outstanding customer requests and the fact that it requires UI hotfix.
@ russnewcomer KAV1.4 feature to skip if offline
Really is a nightmare .. we have 100's of machines to upgrade and are just wasting time/money yet again
cant automate & schedule removal of "other " av and then install KAV
dont have a local shared source for the installer or the updates
Thanks Meghana. We did schedule a message to users and broke up the deployment over several days. It is working ok. We have had a few that still didn't understand, which I suppose is typical. Also we've had a few that didn't get the message because their machine was offline, so it proceeded to install after it came online. I see the option to allow reboot after the install. In the future, we might try that with a prompt to reboot script afterwards or something like that.
