not sure entirely of your intention, but as for ePO master repositroy update, it seems you can use selective updating to download the superdat. Edit your ePO server task (Automation) which controls the master repository pull and in step Actions you can choose Seleced packages under Package types, press Select packages button and check the Superdat checkbox.
This downloads the superdat to the master repository.
This might - just might - allow you setting another checkbox under the client update task in Package types\Selected packages\Select packages button (there might be here a new checkbox for the superdat. We do not download superdat to master repository, so this second statement is a theory only.)
It is worth a try.
Er - unfortunately that's not correct. The superdat package is not posted to the commonupdater download sites.
The option you describe would download a superdat package if one were present in the source repository - so if you were pulling from a source controlled by another ePO server that had a superdat checked in, then it would work - but the original poster is (I believe) looking for a way to automatically download the superdat each day from McAfee.
do you think it is usefull to try it from mcafeehttp: update.nai.com/Products/commonupdater
friends i need a solution not a problem
For the SDATxxxx.exe file, try:
Within that directory will reside the SDATxxxx.exe file. xxxx will change day to day, and 'todays' version can be found by parsing another file:
gdeltaavv.ini will list the current production release of the SDAT file. The first 4 lines look something like this:
Created=Sat Feb 06 11:11:04 2010
Where CurrentVersion lists the latest SDAT file that can be found, that was Created on the previous line.
Like Joe Bidgood said, you can use wget to retrieve these files, though I use cURL. In any case, you will need to code your own batch file and then figure out how to schedule it to run 'automatically.'
First, download gdeltaavv.ini, parse it for the current version, then download the sdat file.
A snippet of batch file code to parse gdeltaavv.ini:
for /F "usebackq skip=2 delims== tokens=1,2*" %%m in (`Find /I "CurrentVersion" gdeltaavv.ini`) do set Curr=%%n
Now, %Curr% should contain the value of the SDat file. Note: This line requires Windows 2000 and above and assumes that gdeltaavv.ini is in the current directory.
Ok, you are now ready to download the SDAT file. Whether you use cURL or wget is entirely up to you. Please read the documentation of each product and decide for yourself how you want to proceed. I will leave this coding to you.
I usually check to see if I have already downloaded this file prior to downloading it again. No need in wasting Internet bandwidth.
Post back how you are doing and with any questions.
