    How to determine where McAfee client pull the Virus definition DAT file from

      Hello everyone.

       

      We just  have McAfee implemented on our network, and we need to determine if McAfee AV client pulling the DAT file update from the server or from the web.  How do I accomplish this?

       

      Thank you for your assistance.

          If just one client, Right click the AutoUpdate task, then look at the last update session for the line:

           

          Checking update packages from repository <NAME>

           

          If NAIHttp or NAIFtp (or if you've renamed them, whatever you've renamed them to), then they're using the web.

           

          Through EPO you should be able to check as well. There is a query which shows which shows dat updates and indicates the repository used. Can't recall it's name though.
