VirusScan 8.7 Patch 2, epo agent 4.5, computers with 1 GB memory, DAT updates fail

About one quarter of my organization's PCs have just 1 GB of memory. They are running VirusScan 8.7 P2 and we have a 4.5 epo server. The pcs have epo 4.5 agent without any patches. I hadn't done the patch 1 for agent 4.5 because it seemed like there were some scary bugs introduced but I do see that a memory leak problem was fixed.

Starting a few weeks ago, the occasional PC with 1 GB of memory gets generic script error when getting a new DAT file. I try remotely restarting Framework service and the various mcafee services but typically it takes a reboot to get the antivirus definition update to work.

I looked up generic script error in the Mcafee database and didn't see anything relevant.

Any suggestions?

Here's the agent log when it fails.

Re: VirusScan 8.7 Patch 2, epo agent 4.5, computers with 1 GB memory, DAT updates fail

Hi,

please see KB58966 for troubleshooting issues through log files.

I think first by enabling loglevel 8, you could have enough information of the cause. If that won't help, continue by debug logging.

I would recommend always seeing McScript.log for checking update issues, because agent log does not have enough info.
