This is a general query regarding CSA Agents that are installed on Windows servers. I realize that could include a broad array of services for end users.
Let me preface by saying I have had good success with CSA Agents installed on Windows servers in the past. Though I am about to embark on a CSA 5.0 implementation and want to reassure a client (and myself!). Call it a reality check and one more way to keep from getting over-confident about a particular product. I figured this was the best place to ask before I begin.
Please let me know if you have a moment about the good, the bad, and the ugly you have encountered either in your labs or on live networks.
Cisco Security Agent supports Network Load Balancing and Server Cluster for Windows 2003 and 2000 Server platforms. Cluster support may require certain network permissions to operate. As with other network services, your CSA MC policies must account for these network permissions. (Component Load Balancing, and Solaris and Linux Clusters are not officially supported in this release 5.0
I recently removed CSA 5 from a Windows 2003 SP1 server that is our Trend Micro OfficeScan 7.0 server. I applied the policy and rule sets from Trend Micro but the server kept blue screening. This is an HP DL380 G4 and it had the system board replaced, different RAM, etc.. The only time it behaves well is when CSA 5 is gone. The only reason we installed 5 was because 4.0.3-737 would cause it to have multiple timeout errors.
