Re: Managed AutoUpdate: No status or log info. on VirusScan client


I assume by "managed" task you mean one that is configured from ePO? If so, then these tasks are executed by the agent, and the details are therefore logged to the agent's log files. I would recommend looking at:

The agent log (default location is \Documents & Settings\All Users\Application Data\McAfee\Common Framework\DB\Agent_<machinename>.log)

The mcscript.log (default location is \Documents & Settings\All Users\Application Data\McAfee\Common Framework\mcscript.log for MA4, \Documents & Settings\All Users\Application Data\McAfee\Common Framework\DB\mcscript.log for MA4.5.)
