    Deploying VSE including latest DAT files

      Hiya,

       

      We have VSE deployed as part of our imaging process.

       

      Is there any way to deploy VSE WITH the latest DAT files ?

       

      ie once install complete, VSE is up to date

          Hi af77

          If you are using an image, you would need to create the image every time you wanted to deploy it to have the latest dat files.  I would not recommend deploying the Agent with your image.  You will have the same Agent GUID each time you used the image.  Push the Agent out to the new machine using ePO.  Believe me it will keep you from having issues later. This is what my PC Support config center did, until I talked them into, not deploying the agent with the image.  Once you have installed the agent, send a wakeup call, to update the dats.

           

          Thanks Mike

            Hi af77, this is possible using the MID (McAfee Install Designer) so you can create a VirusScan package with a specific DAT file inluded

             

            Of course of you are using an ePO environment then you'll need to delete the GUID registry key before imaging the computer so it will be recreated at the next boot as mrandolp told

              or at the end of your deployment run a task/ script that runs the autoupdate- "c:\program files\mcafee\virusscan enterprise\mcupdate.exe" /update /quiet
