Re: Signature set download failure

Hi,

It looks like the Sensor is running below recommended release on Software and because of memory allocation issue for signature deployment is failing.

 

As a workaround, disable auto-download and deployment of the signature. Download the 'lite' signature named 9.8.56.107.lite and import it to the NSM and deploy it. The deployment should be a success.

You should be able to download the signature from:

https://www.mcafee.com/content/enterprise/en-in/downloads/my-products/downloads.html

Refer to KB87554 for more details on memory enhancement.

Faizan

Hi, 

You must log in to the download portal using Grant ID and email address. Once logged in, you should Select for 'Signature' and open 9.8 version. Later, you will be able to download 'lite' signature.

Link for download portal: https://www.mcafee.com/enterprise/en-in/downloads/my-products.html

Hi Faizan,

Thank you. already can download the version lite. and we also able to deploy to sensor a & sensor b.
Just not sure why in progress task, deploy status failed. but in device sensor b, still in deploying.
but on summary we can see version already same.
Just if all success, can we change back signature update automatically ? since lite version is not latest, can we proceed automatically deploy on sensor ?

Hi User35037216,

What model of sensor are you using and what software version is it on?

What software version is your manager on?

Do you have other sensors that will update the SigSet successfully?

Regards

Peter

Hi,

I will not recommend you to enable auto-download till the Sensor software is below the recommended release. Auto-downloading will lead you to the same state i.e. deployment failure.

For a permanent fix, please upgrade Sensor software to version 9.1.3.13 and later. Once upgraded, you can enable auto-downloading and deployment of signatures.

Faizan
