L2-802.1x NAC Framework integration with Symantec

Hi, I have trouble to integrate Symantec Antivirus to already running NAC Framework environment.

* Authentication using dot1x against Windows AD works

* CTA Posture Agent works

* Symantec ADF and Posture Plugin installed -- worked until Feb 2007, after that date stops

* Completely reinstalled ACS, imported ADF -- didn't help.

* Tried CTA 2.1, 2.0.1 without success.

* Tried remove ADF, import again, no success

Logs say that CTA is gathering Symc Posture informations well, but on the ACS nothing from Symantec is shown, but I can use them in policies, so ADF is imported correctly.

Server is ACS 4.1 build 23, PCs are Wins XPs and W2k, CTA 2.1 (I have properly set the PPMsg_size for Symantec to 1024).

Switches are 3550 (12.2.35SE) and 2950( 12.1.21EA8a).

Summary: I can't get postures from Symantec anymore, despite fact, that it worked in the past.

Can someone, who implemented Symantec AV in NAC Framework help me somehow?

One more question: what is the HCAP URL for Symantec Corporate AV server?

Thanks! Astib

You need to install new Symantec Plugin files for CTA

There are newer Sym Posture Plugins than on SAV 10.1 installation media? That's news for me, thanks! If so, can you please direct me where I can get them? I have seek through CDs, on Symantec Platinum, Google, ... but haven't found anything.

I would be glad for every information regarding Symantec HCAP Posture server; how to configure it on ACS in the External Posture Validation page?

Thank you very much!
