I am currently deploying, to a schedule, a Sophos Endpoint upgrade to ICTST managed computers using Altiris Notification Server.
The installation has already deployed to OUCS computers managed by ICTST, so far with no failures and no negative reports.
Today I started piloting it on ICTST managed computers in Libraries and OUED (Estates). I think it should be Ok but the install is not completely silent: annoyingly there are a couple of windows that pop up briefly towards the end, but they don’t take focus off of the user’s active window.
1. New Upgrade
From the end of November 2010, ICTST will be deploying a new version of the Sophos Anti-Virus client. The current version 7 will very soon be end of life and the Sophos support for it will end on 31st March 2011.
2. Roll-out to Windows computers managed by the ICT Support Team
Depending on the configuration of your computer you will see some or all of the following icons and notifications during and after the installation and auto-update processes. It is important that if the “Your computer might be at risk” message / icon is not cleared automatically within a few minutes that you log an Incident with the helpdesk at firstname.lastname@example.org
