How to update DAT files remotely via command line

Jump to solution

How can i update the virus definition files remotely via command-line?  I'm running Virusscan 8.7i patch 3 with EPO 4.5 Patch1.

I want to run it remotely (and silent) and via command line.

I used PSEXEC to get to a command line

mcupdate.exe located in the VirusScan directory will force an update. The switches /quiet and /update may do what you require (Can't confirm as the KB is down).
