|WINEP-19220||Sophos Anti-Virus||Resolved an issue with Microsoft updates causing machines to stop when to stop when starting.|
|WINEP-1577||Sophos Central agent installer||The logged on user who runs SophosInstall.exe must be a member of the SophosAdministrator group in order to migrate an on-premise–managed computer to Sophos Central. Otherwise, the installation will fail.
If you have experienced this issue, add the user account to the SophosAdministrator group and re-run the installer..
|WINEP-1423||Sophos Central agent installer||When migrating an on-premise–managed computer to Sophos Central, a Sophos endpoint software update may cause the installation to fail. This happens when a computer is migrated without using the Sophos Central Migration Tool, by running the Sophos Central agent installer (SophosInstall.exe) on the computer either interactively or in a quiet mode. The update frequency is configured in Sophos Enterprise Console (Updating Policy>Schedule tab>Check for updates every n minutes) by the Sophos Enterprise Console administrator.
To avoid or work around this issue, you can do either of the following:
Sophos Endpoint Security and Control for Windows Server is supported on Windows 2003, 2003 R2 and 2008. For detailed system requirements, see knowledge base article 121027.
It is now possible to automatically migrate a computer managed by Sophos Enterprise Console or Sophos Control Center to be managed by Sophos Central. Please see the Sophos Central Migration Tool Help for more details.
For known migration issues, see the issues for Sophos Central agent installer in Known Issues.
Sophos Device Control does not block removable storage devices that are used as system drives, as this typically destabilizes the operating system.
