Release Notes for Dr.Web Enterprise Suite 6.0.2

Last updated on 17.10.2011


Dr.Web Enterprise Suite is designed to organize and control integrated, complex and reliable anti-virus protection of computers of a company.

Dr.Web Enterprise Suite has a client-server architecture. Client components of anti-virus network are installed on the protected workstations of users and administrators (network servers). Enterprise Server provides for centralized administrating of the anti-virus and anti-spam protection of the company's network, including deployment, virus databases and program files updates on protected computers, monitoring of virus events and the state of the anti-virus packages and OS’s on all protected computers.

An aggregate of computers on which Dr.Web Enterprise Suite cooperating components are installed is called an anti-virus network. To deploy the anti-virus network, the advantages of Active Directory technology employed in servers under Windows OS's can be used.

To exchange information between Server(s) and Agents network protocols TCP/IP and IPX/SPX, NetBIOS could be used. That allows to deploy the anti-virus network keeping historical topology of the network.

2.During automatic upgrade of the Server software contents of the repository are removed and new version is installed. If the repository of the older version was not removed, it is necessary to manually remove its contents and renew it.
3.For a network with several Severs, from the main Server with 6.0.2 version to child Servers with smaller versions (5.X or 4.X) only virus bases are transmitted.

To transmit all software and Agent updates, upgrade child Servers to 6.0.2 version (for repositories  compatibility).

4.If you are using the ODBC for Oracle as an external database, select the Custom option and in the opened window, disable the installation of Oracle client in the Database support - Oracle database driver section in the installer settings during the Server upgrading (or reinstallation).

Otherwise, Oracle DB functioning will fail because of the libraries conflict.

5.After the Server upgrading from the 4.XX version to 6.0.2 version, the transport parameter must be present in the drwcsd.conf configuration file of the Server:

Transport "drwcs" "tcp/" "udp/"

where the drwcs is a Server name.

If this parameter is not specified, add it manually and restart the Server.

Upgrading the Dr.Web Enterprise Server for Windows® OS

Two modes of upgrading the Server to 6.0.2 version are available:

1.Upgrading the Server of 4.44, 4.70 and 5.0 versions can be done automatically by using the installer.

For instance, copy the Control Center  configuration file (webmin.conf) and report templates which are stored in the \var\templates folder. When installation completes, you can replace the new files with the old ones.
