    McAfee Agent product update log file path system variables

    Spork

      All,

       

      I am having an issue with McAfee Agents updating the UpdateLog.txt file when an AutoUpdate task runs a DAT update. When the McAfee Agent "Product update log file" policy in ePO is configured to point to:

       

      Scenario 1

      C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\McAfee\DesktopProtection\UpdateLog.txt <--- Works fine for Windows XP

       

      Scenaio 2

       

      C:\ProgramData\McAfee\DesktopProtection\UpdateLog.txt <--- Works fine for Vista and Windows 7

      Leveraging System Variables
      Scenario 3
      %DEFLOGDIR%\UpdateLog.txt <--- Does not work
      Scenario 4
      %VSEDEFLOGDIR%\UpdateLog.txt <--- Does not work
      Am I missing something regarding the environment variables or will they not work in this scenario? If not, this presents an interesting scenario in mixed environments with Windows XP and Windows 7 devices as the policy only accepts one value. I would need to have a separate McAfee Agent policy for Windows XP and Windows 7 machines just to configure UpdateLog location?
      Any insight into this would be greatly appreciated.
      David
