We use Security Center 9 to deploy KES 8 on our network.
We often have to reinstall or upgrade workstations. When this happens, Security Center keeps the old informations about this client computer in memory : on the properties page, it is always the old IP address with the old informations about which version of KAV is installed etc...
If the IP address as changed, I have found no way to force an update and Security Center just can't see this new computer.
It seems that Security Center caches DNS entries somewhere, but I haven't found how to clean this cache and rescan all workstations.
If I try to redeploy KES8 on this computer (if the address has not changed), it fails saying that it is already installed. If I force it (install even when already installed), it hangs on "waiting for a connection...".
I tried to delete the computer from the "administered computers" group, but this does not help.
I also tried to rescan the network, but this still does not help.
What are the recommended steps to follow when reinstalling / upgrading a client computer ?
A good start would be to find a way to force Security Center to flush its DNS cache and rescan a particular computer (or all of them, I don't mind).
Thanks for your help !
