Manually Update Exploit Prevention on Disconnected System


I have an system that is not connected to the internet and uses ENS. I manually update the Threat Prevention by downloading from the Commonupdater3 directory and placing in a repository. Threat Prevention update works fine. The dates for Exploit Prevention however are not updating. I realize these are not updated as frequently as the Threats but my dates are older than the currently released Exploit Prevention I see here Mine are several versions behind. I download Commonupdater3 every week.

I do see the procedures in KB89050

Problem with those is it ends with checking these in with ePolicy Orchestrator. we don't have that. Downloading the files in KB89050 and placing them in the repo does not work. What am I missing here. 

There are several other threads here with the same issue that just reference the KB. But with out an ePO need other method. 

What am I missing here?

Re: Manually Update Exploit Prevention on Disconnected System

Hi @jtovb ,

Thank you for posting on the Community. We apologize for being late in answering you.

Commonupdater and Commonupdater2 have Exploit Prevention Contents.
McAfee supports replication of repositories using the ENS mirror task feature.

McAfee Endpoint Security 10.6.0 - Common Client Product Guide - Windows

> How mirror tasks work
> Configure, schedule, and run mirror tasks

First, set McAfeeHttp ( or CommonUpdater2 ( as the source site to reference.
After then, you can replicate the content to a repository according to your mirror task settings.
In addtion, you should be able to update your exploit content by setting the source site to the repository replicated by the mirror task.

Best regards,

Re: Manually Update Exploit Prevention on Disconnected System



We do have a repository and do use it successfully. We had used VSE prior to updating to ENS. When we used VSE we did use Commonupdater content. That however does not work for ENS for Threat Prevention updates if I am not mistaken. I will try commonupdater2 this week and report back.
