Jason you are not a dummy as thoes are the directions given in the documentation that comes with LinuxShield. I am in the same boat. I have a RHEL5 server with LinuxShield on a stand alone network and the manual update procedures do not work. You would think that McAfee would provide support for this product. It is much easyer with Symantecs linux product because the manual update procedure works. However I am mandated to use the McAfee $#!^ product. If you find a solution to this problem please post it here for all of us.
I'm just wondering if you point the auto-update to point at a directory, and you untar the files into that directory, does it update?
I will try it. I am new to McAfee so I will have to look around to find out how to do it. I hope the directions are in the manuals sent with LinuxShield.
Ok I talked to support, don't ask me who I finaly ended up with but they finaly came up with the answer. The trick is to get the download that has the correct files. It is in the form of avvdat-5678.zip
1) Download the avvdat-nnnn.zip located here:
2) Extract the contents to /opt/NAI/LinuxShield/engine/dat
3) Then run CHMOD 750 or 777 against the extracted files
4) Finally, restart the nails service
I didn't do step 3 and it still worked for me.
