I have set up a new server and I'm evaluating Virusscan on a few clients as a pilot.
The server is successfully set up with EPO 4.6 and so far I have deployed the Mcafee agent and VSE88 to one test client. The server doesn't have VSE installed yet, only EPO.
The client displays a Windows 7 warning message saying McAfee is out of date and must be updated manually. I have not tried to update at the client manually because I don't want the users to have to take any action when we are ready to do a wide rollout. I'm surprised it doesn't do an automatic check for updates after the install completes. I need a way to lauch a check for updates from the client when they are first installed or deploy an already updated client.
The EPO admin guide says Installation Designer can be used to deploy Virusscan with current DAT updates already installed, but I don't have that product and I can't find a link to download an evaluation version of Installation Designer and it isn't listed as something available to download and check in from Software Manager..
I cant tell if the ePO server is updated with the latest DAT files saved somewhere ready to distribute. How can I download the client update files to the EPO server and then distribute those updates files to the new clients?on 7/5/12 5:01:47 PM CDT
I just logged in to ePO under a dfferent account and the home screen shows My Repository "Not Available" for both DAT and Engine.
Last check was a few minutes ago and it says (Failed) in red.
You can manually download and check in the package to master repo with the file listed here.
Is there a way to use ePO 4.6 to deply the current DAT files with a new Virusscan deployment instead of having it deploy the out of date definitions and then have to wait for the client to update definitions later?
Yes! you can download McAfee Installation Designer and put newest DATs and Engine in the VSE package.You can find it in your customer download area.
Does that use of installation designer, however, put the "newest at the time" DAT into the package? Wouldn't you have to create a new package frequently ... or daily... to stay current?
ePO wise, is there a way to have the product update task run immediately when Agent checks in the next time after the VSE product install task?
I am currently evaluating Virusscan and EPO. I don't see an Installation Designer evaluation version.
When you purchase Virusscan and EPO, is Installation Designer an included product available for everyone to download or is it an additional product that needs to be purchased?
