I´m looking for a way to schedule signature updates directly on the NSP Sensor. Our NSP Manager is unavailable and I need to schedule these downloads directly on the Sensor. It should download directly from McAfee Update Server.
So far as I know there is no way to schedule signature updates directly in your sensor using the command line. You must have to do that via the NSM.
However, if you are looking for ways to just update signatures while your NSM is offline, you can do that by using the instructions below:
1. Download manually the latest IPS signature compatible with your sensor and make it available in a TFTP server in your local network.
2. From the sensor command line type:
set tftp server ip <IP address of your TFTP server>
loadconfiguration tftp <signature filename>
Hope this helps.
