Hi There, I'm having a problem with Netshield, this has to do with updating the virus definitions on the server. I'm trying to install DAT file updates directly from a zip file without using the AutoUpdate utility. This is not recommended but where I work, it seems this must be completed. I went to the following website:
Hi There, Yes I have followed the directions. New DAT files are stored in the default directory. The only problem is the last paragraph, when you load NetShield. It seems that it loads for about 2 seconds, then it suddenly unload's itself automatically. I can't seem to figure out why...could it be that there is a crucial file missing from the directory? This is my first time using Novell Netware as well...so you could say I'm a rookie.
I've aquired the version and patch level of Netshield for Novell. It is Mcafee Netshield 4.60 with a scan engine version of 4.4.00. The virus definition version is 4.0.4984. Also when I go into the "Logger Screen", it states NETSHLD-4.6: Failed to initialize scanning engine. Any suggestions?
I've found that when you get this message it's because one of the NetShld NLMs is still loaded, usually mcscan32.nlm. Unload, then try to start NetShld again. It should start if no other NetShld nlms are loaded. The same thing will happen when loading the EPO agents if one of those nlms are already loaded. In this case you will get no error messages of any kind. You will get "OK"s showing all the nlms loaded, but then if you check to see if they are really loaded you will find they're not. You have to make sure all the EPO nlms are unloaded before you try to restart it. Same thing with Netshld: all the nlms must be unloaded when you try to restart.
