Has anyone noticed that the dat-xxxx.zip and avvdat-xxxx.zip files that EPO downloads are around 30mb each. Why have these gotten so large recently. I am having huge issues replicating these files out to SA on long speed lines. Anyone else having silimiar issues?
I had a brief chat with my Platinum Support Manager and she mentioned this. From what I recall it is because of the various products that McAfee now have and the threats related to them. At least thats what I think she was getting at.
I am now getting repository failures when ePO is trying to pull down the dats. I am not sure if it is the size of the file causing the problem but I have raised it with McAfee and will post back any findings if this is the case.
I'm randomly getting time out on http and ftp updates from Mcafee now aswell which I have to attribute back to the large size. I am hoping when they release VSE 8.7 they will stop support for the 8.0 in dats and the size will come back down.. but im not counting on it.
