I've been having the same problem with my update mirror tasks for the last couple days.
I believe it may be due to the large DATs that McAfee has stated they are releasing this week.
I use an update mirror location as a repository for a secondary domain that does not have internet access.
Even though it is failing at some point, I am still getting the updated DAT to my mirror and my secondary ePO server is able to pull it.
There is an additional log here: %DEFLOGDIR%\MirrorLog.txt
(defaults to: C:\ProgramData\McAfee\DesktopProtection\ on 08 server)
Thank you, Joey. That helps.
I will keep looking for some other way to get a more detailed log of what happened. Something as you can find in Linux will be great.
As for the download size, you are right. McAfee's updates are not great for installations in locations with poor connections; these monolithic downloads usually fail many times before completing successfuly.
What about using torrents for this? I'm getting tired of having to restart the download every so often.
