    McAfee Agent polling Internet dispite being registered in ePO

      Hi,

       

      I have an agent (Version 4.6) on one of my machine that continually pols the internet for updates dispite being registered and connecting to an ePO server (version 4.6). I have completely removed McAfee from PC and reinstalled with no difference. Has anyone seen symptons like this.

       

      Thanks In Advance

          Are we talking about DAT updates here - i.e. the machine is talking to the outside world when it's running an update task?

           

          If so check the agent policy to ensure that it's configured to use an ePO-controlled repository (either the master or a distributred repository) and, assuming this is the case, check the agent log and mcscript log on the client machine to see if there's any indication why it would be failing to use them. (Common causes are things like the repository being out of date, unreachable, or there being an error downloading the update.)

           

          HTH -
