1 Remote Administration
AVG 8.0 Remote Administration 1

2 Contents General Description AVG Admin Setup
AVG Admin Server Deployment Wizard AVG Admin Server and Monitor AVG Network Installer Wizard AVG Admin Client AVG Admin Console New features

3 General Description New architecture – layers, communication protocol
User Interface adjustments – intuitive, user-friendly, flexible layout Easy to understand terminology AVG 8.0 is not compatible with AVG Admin 7.5

4 Fundamental Components
AVG Remote Administration Setup AVG Admin Server Deployment Wizard AVG Admin Server AVG Admin Server Monitor AVG Admin Console AVG Network Installer Wizard AVG Admin Client

5 AVG Admin Setup (I) Setup does not uninstall AVG Admin 7.5
Remote Administration 7.5 and 8.0 can run on one server Language localization Czech, English, German, French, Italian, Brazillian Portuguese Setup is not responsible for configuration Configuration is created by the Server Deployment Wizard

6 AVG Admin Setup (II) Program Location %programfiles%\AVG\AVG8Admin
separate folder for each component Graphical reports Setup requires a valid license number

7 Image 1 – AVG 8.0 Remote Administration setup
Installation - Type Image 1 – AVG 8.0 Remote Administration setup

8 Installation - Full Mode
All components available: Admin Console Admin Server Graphical Reports Network Installer Wizard Documentation DataCenter role and UpdateProxy role

9 Installation – Module selection
Image 2 – Selection of Remote Administration modules

10 Installation – Lite Mode
Admin Lite server can only act in the UpdateProxy role Network Installer (hidden installation using a script) DataCenter and Admin Console are not available Recommended for small networks

11 Admin Server Deployment Wizard
Initial configuration and later reconfiguration Allocation of AVG Remote Administration roles Scripts for DB creation or conversion to a higher version No initial configuration is created by default The Deployment Wizard has to be completed in order to make AVG 8.0 Remote Administration functional

12 Admin Server Deployment Wizard

14 DataCenter Configuration
Database configuration Creation of new database Database backup and conversion Supported databases: Firebird MS SQL 2005 Express Edition (and MSDE) MS SQL Server 2000/2005 Oracle 10g

15 DataCenter Configuration
Image 5 – DataCenter role configuration

16 UpdateProxy Configuration
Define local folder for “mirrored” update files URL for local and public update servers Connection string to machine running Master DataCenter (if different) Local proxy server configuration Included also in Lite Mode configuration

17 UpdateProxy Configuration
Image 6 – UpdateProxy role configuration

18 Image 7 – Deployment progress

19 AVG Admin Server (I) DataCenter role, UpdateProxy role, or both
Completely new communication protocol Admin Server service is launched after computer startup listening on TCP port 4158 Admin Server can not process AVG 7.5 requests

20 AVG Admin Server (II) Configuration is stored in avgadmsv.ini file
Initial configuration of the Admin Server is done by the Server Deployment Wizard Advanced configuration is available in the Admin Server Monitor Monitoring of new Remote Administration releases and self-update function

21 DataCenter Role (I) Admin Server is able to serve more clients simultaneously (performance) It is not possible to execute pure SQL queries for security reasons All trafic is encrypted with 192-bit Blowfish algoritm by default

22 DataCenter Role (II) 3rd party SQL API++ library for unique access to different DB systems using native drivers (ODBC drivers are not used) The same version of AVG 8.0 Remote Administration and AVG Data Center is required Database conversion to the higher version is reliable Generated conversion scripts, less human-written code

23 Communication Scheme

24 Communication Protocol
All logic is moved from client to server All communication is handled by a set of commands initiated from the Admin Console or the AVG Client Priority management is implemented to control load peaks

25 Communication Ports 4158 – main port for communication between Client and Server, Console and Server 6051 – direct communication between Console and Client, configurable 6054 – direct communication between Console and Server, non-configurable, implemented collision detection

26 Central Event Management
Event Templates Virus found on a station Station not communicating for more than N days Station is not up-to-date Subscription for specific events

27 UpdateProxy Role Download service with proxy-like behaviour
Update distribution to the clients Lower Internet traffic Faster updating of stations Remote administration of UpdateProxy server

28 Update Scheme New update file downloading AVG Station User Update
AVG station is receiving update files AVG Admin Server Update servers AVG station is asking for update files Is there the needed update file? AVG Station Downloaded update files User

29 Segmented Server Functionality
The intention is to split Admin Server load on multiple hardware resources Admin Server functionality is segmented (DataCenter and UpdateProxy role) Each segment can be installed separately to facilitate performance optimization

30 AVG Admin Server Monitor (I)
Configuration possibilities Change or verification of license number Modification of logging level Communication port (4158 by default) Password protection of Admin Server connection

31 Admin Server Monitor Settings

37 AVG Network Installer Wizard (I)
Creation of installation script Remote network installation Clear requirements for remote installation Remote AVG Uninstallation

38 AVG Network Installer Wizard (II)
Automatic download of the latest installation package Detailed information about installation processes Retrieving installation log files from remote stations

39 Requirements – Operating system
MS Windows 2000 with SP4 and SRP1 MS Windows 2003 Server with SP1 MS Windows XP Professional with SP2 MS Windows Vista MS Windows XP Home manual installation and start AVG Agent service is necessary

40 Requirements – Services & ports
Ping ICMP type 0 – Incomming echo request File and printer sharing TCP ports 139, 445 and UDP ports 137, 138 Remote Procedure Call TCP and UDP ports 135 Communication on TCP port 6150

41 Network Installer – Method
Image 12 – Choice of installation method

42 Network Installer – Basic

54 Architecture (I) Designed for station administration only
Pure monitoring mode for workstations is not implemented Mandatory values are forced onto the clients, non-mandatory values are read from the clients

55 Architecture (II) Client mode of configuration
identical interface with Advanced settings on the client Admin mode of configuration plain list of values is displayed in each section

56 Station Identification
By station name By station name and domain By station IP address By station MAC address Elimination of possible problems in less structured networks

64 Migration from AVG 7.5 to 8.0 - Server
AVG Remote Administration 8.0 can be installed along with AVGAdmin 7.5 Each server (TCP Server 7.5 and Admin Server 8.0) work independently, with their own configuration and database Admin Console 8.0 can not connect to TCP Server 7.5 and vice versa Databases are not compatible and cannot be converted

65 Migration from AVG 7.5 to 8.0 - Client
AVG 8.0 can not be installed together with AVG 7.5 Installation process of AVG 8.0 removes AVG 7.5 automatically AVG 7.5 can not connect to Admin Server 8.0 and vice versa

66 Migration from AVG 7.5 to 8.0 (I)
AVG Admin 7.5 can export a list of client’s station names AVG Network Installer 8.0 is able to load this list and install AVG 8.0 onto all listed stations Stations are looked up by their name -> valid DNS/WINS record is required

67 Migration from AVG 7.5 to 8.0 (II)
AVG 8.0 connects to Admin Server 8.0 after installation AVG Network Installer 8.0 can remove successfully upgraded stations from AVG Admin 7.5 Result: all reinstalled stations are configurable from Admin Console 8.0, stations that cannot be reinstalled remain connected to AVG Admin 7.5

68 New Features Planned support for more DB types
Central event management AVG Admin Server self-update Remote uninstallation Central management of Update servers Simple and intuitive terminology and User Interface
