Thanks for the help.
I have recently downloaded the EPO 4.5 on Windows Server 2008. I tried o create a mirror task as follows:
1. Client Management - New task
2. Select type as Mirror Repository
3. Specify the location as C:\AntivirusTest\Repository
4. Scheduled for every day and time set to + 5 minutes from present time
Now when I am looking at the dash board the DAT and Engine as Not present.
Now when I am checking at the newly created folder. It's empty.
Basically I somehow wanted to get the trial version of any antivirus upgrade patch for Virus scan 8.7 that can be installed on top of Eval version so as to confirm that my time critical application doesn't see performance issue when I upgrade the patch from dedicated Server.
I was assuming you werent using epo as you just said vse but assuming you are using epo 4.5 with the 4.5 agent you can just set the standard pull task in epo to check stuff into the eval branch of the epo repository, you dont need to mess around with mirror tasks or anything like that.
You can then set the machines to install this stuff as and when you want.
Have you looked at the helpfull videos on how to manage/setup epo https://mysupport.mcafee.com/eservice/productdocuments.aspx?strPage=1
