dat reputation disable

Hello,

as we are on a closed network I would like to disable Dat reputation on all server from the ePO. I saw instructions on this forum but it seems to be on an erlier verision of ePO. As I understand it datrep is integrated now and not an extension.

 

Thanks!

Any reason you would like to disable?

Re: dat reputation disable

Not more then I dont see the reson why it should be enabled when the server cant reach internet.  If it can be disabled then its one less thing to worry about regarding performance and maintenance.

In server settings, product improvement program, set that to no. 

Also, set up a client task to uninstall product improvement program to remove it from the systems and once that is done, remove the package from the repository so it doesn't get deployed again.

Re: dat reputation disable

In case you are facing any issue in disable DAT reputation then please contact support as per

https://kc.mcafee.com/corporate/index?page=content&id=kb55986#DAT_Reputation


Will endpoints that cannot connect to the Internet try to use DAT Reputation?
Endpoints on closed or limited networks can be configured to disable the DAT Reputation check and endpoint safety pulse. However, in the unlikely case of a Bad DAT update, these computers must have their update tasks disabled by an administrator. An ePO extension will be provided for policy management and reporting. Customers with unmanaged endpoints can contact Technical Support for further information on how to configure DAT Reputation settings (for details, see the Related Information section below).

NOTE: McAfee does not recommend disabling DAT reputation unless absolutely necessary.
