New to the forums.

I join this to find out if there were any updates or patches for this particular virusscan. As of right now i have mcafee enterprise 8.7.0i.

Scan engine version (32bit) 5400.1158

DAT version: 6118.0000

I've been out of the loop and I was wondering if you guys can direct me to a link if there are any patches for this version. Thanks

Re: New to the forums.

You should be running patch 3 for vse 8.7 (patch 4 is Release To Web this/next month)

Those messages are showing that cetain optional items which are included as default downloads are not there so are not being updated, nothing to worry about.

eu1000 is not in use yet by McAfee and unless you have setup an extra.dat to update then you would not see it

Thanks for answer my questions. This may sound little newbish but exactly where do i get patch number 3? I've been to mcafee website and I didnt' exactly see patch 3? Is there a link you guys and give me?

Thanks again.

Re: New to the forums.

Hi with regards to your second query this is just an autoupdate process displays messages to record exactly what is occuring during the update session according to its configuration.

For more information check on the link below.

Updates were not applied because packages were not in the repository VSCANCEU1000, EXTRADAT1000

Some day (a future Agent release) our Agent team will be updating this text to say something less misleading, so folks are not lead to believe there's a problem.

That'll be a good day.
