Azure WorkerRole PaaS Symantec Endpoint Protection RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have azure c# WorkerRole (PaaS) where I need to check uploaded files for viruses. And I am going to use Symantec Endpoint Protection (SEP) DoScan.exe utility.

    I need to create deployment script which will automatically install and setup SEP on WorkerRole.

    Can you advice, please, how to setup and configure SEP using installation scripts (not using SEP GUI)?

    I found insturctions how to setup SEP on Azure VM here: 


    But it is for Azure VM not for WorkerRole.

  • Hi,

    You can use a startup task for your WorkerRole. Have a look at this guide which explains this in more detail.

    Hope this help!

  • Hi, Edward

    Thank you for reply.

    Yes, I know about startup tasks.

    So, I need to include SEP installation package to my deployment project?

    I know that SEP is accessible from Azure VM Extensions.

    Can I install it form Azure VM Extensions? What command should I use?

    And I am going to make this WorkerRole as internal service. It will download file from blob storage, check it for viruses and save some reports to DB. So there will be no internet connection.

    How SEP will update his databases? Is there any internal azure server to update Symantec databases from?
