At what time during the day will the daily DAT files be made available?
The daily DAT files are generally available by 19:00 (UTC/GMT). However, if a new threat warrants this, daily DAT files may be released earlier. Under some circumstances daily DAT releases may be delayed.
Unless govern by policy/regulation, I usually wait several hours - no need to be on the bleeding edge of a faulty dat file
Interesting, if the DAT files are generally released at 7pm why is our DAT file never up to date the next morning when our update runs at 1am?
I would suggest you to delete the DAT package from the reporsitory location (\Program files\McAfee\ePO\DB\Software\Current), delete VSCANDAT1000 folder and run the pull task by selecting only DAT and share with us Epoapsvr.log.

Are you pulling from the McAfee HTTP site? If so, switch over to the McAfee FTP site. McAfee HTTP has a 6/28 2AM time stamp Index of /114445/products/commonupdater vs McAfee FTP has a 6/27 10PM time stamp ftp://ftp.nai.com/commonupdater3/current/vscandat1000/dat/0000/
That's the answer, must be late updates the other times I've noticed as well. I'll change that to the FTP site and see how it goes.
thanks for your help everyone
