VirusScan Enterprise 8.5.0i AutoUpdate Problem

Hello!

    We have VirusScan Enterprise 8.5.0i working in our enterprise. One of our Domain Controllers (WS2003) is not updating its DAT files because AutoUpdate is not working. I get a message into the VirusScan console showing that AutoUpdate has failed. The only info I get into the log file is:

05/11/2009    17:45:33    XXXX\administrador    Iniciando tarea: AutoUpdate (Starting task: AutoUpdate)

No errors, no more info....

I tryed re-installing VirusScan without result. I forced one DAT file update using a SuperDAT exe getting it updated but AutoUpdate still remains broken. How can I mend AutoUpdate option of my VirusScan?

Regards

Re: VirusScan Enterprise 8.5.0i AutoUpdate Problem

The agent log should give us more data. In the meantime, let's create a new update task in the VSE console and see how that goes. May just be the task is corrupted.

Agent log located - c:\docs and settings\all users\app data\mcafee\commonframework\DB\agent_machinename.log

Also, what agent version are you running?

What patch level are you at with VSE 8.5?

Has the system ever updated properly?

If you switch the update task to update via ftp instead of http is it successful?

Look for the task.ini associated with your update task and attach to thread:  c:\docs and settings\all users\app data\mcafee\commonframework\Task

Open the txt files and locate the TaskType=update (that's the one we need to see) Also be sure to attach the agent log

Re: VirusScan Enterprise 8.5.0i AutoUpdate Problem

Ok, it seems that the agent has been corrupted. You will need to do the following:

Log into the product download site with your Grant #  https://secure.nai.com/apps/downloads/my_products/login.asp?region=us&segment=medium

Once logged in go locate the MA 4.0

Under the MA 4.0 download the following package MA400P3Win.zip

Extract the zip

Locate the FramePkg_UPD.exe file and run that on the local system as follows

Open the "Run" line

Drag and drop the FramePkg_UPD.exe  into the "Run" line

Use the following switch /install=updater

Example: c:\FramePkg_UPD.exe /install=updater

After the install is complete. reboot and try your update.

Perfect solution,

Done and now working ok again!

Thank you very much

Regards

Re: VirusScan Enterprise 8.5.0i AutoUpdate Problem

Excellent! Thanks for the feedback. Keep in mind if you are using EPO you will need to deploy a new agent to the system now. If not, you are good to go.

Have a great weekend,

Ron

Re: VirusScan Enterprise 8.5.0i AutoUpdate Problem

What was what we updated then? I thought that I had installed a new version of the agent...

Re: VirusScan Enterprise 8.5.0i AutoUpdate Problem

We did but we used the standalone agent and not the managed agent. Are you using EPO?

Yes, I am

Re: VirusScan Enterprise 8.5.0i AutoUpdate Problem

Sorry, maybe I should have asked this before. Go ahead and deploy a new agent to the system. Try to reproduce the issue. If the issue still does not take place then we are good. If the issue comes back then we will need to target the agent package in the EPO server as the issue and we can fix that with no problem.
