Hello,

therefore ,

 

I need a cmd commands you can suggest for the VSE.

like :

There is no CMD command with which you can disable Access Protection, this can only be done locally or via ePO.

You can use the following command to trigger the DAT update task:
C:\Program Files\McAfee\VirusScan Enterprise\mcupdate /update 

You can add /quiet to make it silent update.

 

There are a number of reasons DAT updates can fail so for any other systems still unable to update the DAT, you'd need to look at the logs and see what the reason for failure is. Technical support can help you identify why it's failing.

@Alexeydi As an anecdote, it is not required that AP be disabled for a DAT update to run.
