Hello,

 

More often than not, when i observe GAM update issues it is DNS problems. Have you tried pinging the following from sensor CLI?:

 

tau.mcafee.com                        80.237.238.81, 217.172.176.87, 138.201.20.29
tau-europe.mcafee.com          161.69.161.30
tau-usa.mcafee.com                161.69.29.249
tau1-2.mcafee.com                  80.237.238.82
tau1-3.mcafee.com                  62.75.131.5
tau1-4.mcafee.com                  138.201.20.49
tau-usa1.mcafee.com              64.34.163.238
tau-usa2.mcafee.com              8.21.163.5

tau-asia.mcafee.com               161.69.207.65
 
Also make sure automatic updating is enabled or you can try manual:
 
Lastly, I always observed issued with GAM engine updates in my 9.2 firmwares, I was told by support that this was fixed in 10.1.5 which is where i am currently migrating my infra to.

Hi Friend,

I need your help regarding gam updates.I am still getting error on updating gam on manager.Manager says that he has successfully deployed gam version on sensor but when i go to summary devices then it shows incorrect version.Bro I have also tried to ping ip from sensor but response is failed.Is it possible that there is restriction on connectivity or this is firmware version 9.2 issue.I raised service request and they advised me to upgrade to version 9.2.5.162 that is hot fix but after up gradation issue did not resolved.
