ePO does not update to latest DAT even though the website says it is available

Jump to solution

I can see on the mcafee website that the current newest DAT file is 7718.

I set the repository in ePO to update now and the update finishes successfully but the DAT file version stays at 7717.

Why is that? Is there some time between the file being available on the mcafee website and the time when ePO can update to it?

Regards.

It shouldn't be like that, have you tried one more time and select the option of move existing  package to previous branch,. If still it is not happening  than restart ePO services and try.  Let me know the results.

This is what I'm doing. I go to Automation / Server Tasks and there I have edited the "Update Master Repository" task and scheduled it to run several minutes later.

The task runs but the DAT does not update. Should it have updated the DAT to the latest version when Updating the master repository?

And if I go to Software / Master repository I can see the DAT version is 7717. If I then click on Pull Now in the Package selection I see the DAT 7718.0000 is available to download.Snap2.png

Eventually it did update to the 7718 version. I scheduled the repository update to run again and this time it did update to 7718.

One more question: can the ePO push the DAT update to the clients immediately after the repository has been updated?

You could enable Global Updating (server settings) which will trigger a client update task as soon as it is checked into the Master a repository.
