Mcafee Agent DAT updates without epo communication

best regards,

how the DAT is updated in the machines that do not have communication for more than a week with the epo server of the corporative network.

 

The dat is updated with connection to the internet without being in the corporate network where I have the epo server?

Re: Mcafee Agent DAT updates without epo communication

In the agent repository policy, there is an option to enable the McAfee site as a fallback repository.  When that is enabled and the system is off the network, it will use the McAfee site to get updates since it can't reach the epo server repository.

Re: Mcafee Agent DAT updates without epo communication

as cdinet stated and if I am not wrong this option is set by default.

So as long as noone disbaled it manually you should be fine.

Best regards

Hi,

We do not see that option in the agent repository policy ePO 5.9.1,  to enable the McAfee site as a fallback repository.

 

Please suggest.

Go to server settings in epo, source sites, and ensure that the mcafee http site shows enabled for fallback.  If not, please then enable it.  With that enable, under the repository policy under name in the repository list, you should see mcafeehttp.  Make sure the state says enabled.

Re: Mcafee Agent DAT updates without epo communication

Hi ,

Thanks for your quick response.

Also we have few tough pads in our organization where they do not frequently connect to our network as they are mostly in roaming profile and I can see the latest communication but unfortunately DAT been out of date in most of the tough pads, these all device has enough disk space and we also have proxy is enabled for those tough pads.

Any suggestion as what could be the reason for not getting the DAT?

Regards,

Majid
