Authentication?
Authored by: -McG- on Feb 13, '04 06:17:14PM

Safar -- As part of our corporate security policy, all our workstations are required to run A/V software, regardless of how susceptible they are to infection.

jlevitsk -- How do you go about authenticating the installer/updater after LiveUpdate has run, i.e. to actually install the defs? There's just no way I'm giving out admin rights to each user to do this....which seems to be NAV's default method. Any pointers/scripts you're willing to provide, I'd happily glom onto....thanks!

I'm right there with you. I do not make my users admins. NAV 9.0.1 runs LiveUpdate with suid root so any user is capable of running LiveUpdate without admin privs.
