Hi,

Depends if you have ENS

amcfg.exe /update

or VSE installed

 

cd "C:\Program Files (x86)\McAfee\VirusScan Enterprise"
mcupdate.exe

Hi,

we have EPS 10.6.1 with Agent 5.5.1.342. I don't see any exit code when I start:

cd "C:\Program Files\McAfee\Endpoint Security\Threat Prevention"
amcfg.exe /update

Is this normal? Can I check it in any way?

Thanks

Hi, this is normal. I'm afraid there is no exit code you can check. The check would be ensuring that the product is running the intended content package after executing this command. This is a good idea for a PER (KB60021) though 🙂
