Some customers have reported successfully avoiding reoccurrences of symptoms by modifying the Agent Update task.
When configuring the content that the Agent Update task should retrieve from the repository (whether a McAfee or internal repository), deselect the Engine content option.
NOTE: The Agent continues to retrieve DAT updates as usual. Checking for Engine content is unnecessary if the client has already updated to the5700 engine.
My dat files are not 0.0000 but they are from the past. Do I have the same issue ? !
If I use workarround 2 : Create a new task which updates the dat files but without the engine, the dat files get updated.
I did not change anything to my ePO system or my VSE .
So this is very strange that this is occuring.
Did you guys had this problem before?
I now have two options :
Change my task "daily updates" and uncheck the engine check.
Upgrade VSE to patch 6 or 7
This issue is currently unresolved, but VSE 8.8 Patch 6 contains code to avoid it. Additionally, Patch 6 contains a code change that could resolve the issue (or greatly reduce the likelihood of it occurring).
