not sure if you are still expecting solution, still I'd like to add this piece of info that with global distributed repositories, the McAfee agent checks the repository content by looking at sitestat.xml and comparing it to the master repository's sitestat.xml. This file holds a timestamp and a version info of the master repository so if the content of this file on a distributed repository does not match that of the master repository, the agent quits and tries the next repository.
With local distributed repositories, this check is not performed, however, then you need to keep those local repositories up to date.
If you define a repository in the McAfee Agent policy under Repositories, that is local (sitestat check not performed). If you define a repository under Systems - distributed repositories that is global (sitestat check is performed).
Regarding your original problem: we/I used to have problems with files stuck/locked in the distributed repository which could not get replaced by the ePO mirror task so if this happens with the sitestat.xml, you can imagine the consequence.
This is why we chose to have local distributed repositories and keep them up to date ourselves. Its much faster (for all 24) and have a separate log so we always find problem causes quicker.
I live in Iran
i've used virusscan enterprise 8.5.0i
these days i can't update it
i receave this error:
"Error occurred while downloading file Site State.Xml
unable to find a valid repository"
What should i do?
is it because of this: "
We are unable to provide software, services and technology to you in accordance with United States Law. Since McAfee is a US company, the corporation is subject to the US Export Adm
The following countries are subject to U.S. trade sanctions or embargo: Cuba, Iran, North Korea, Sudan and Syria."

I had a similar issue with servers that are connecting through an agent handler but had icmp ping blocked, just changed the mcafee agent general policy for the agents in:
McAfee Agent > General > [Policy name]
Select repository by: Use order in repository list option.
