How to Trigger DLP agent updates/policy enforcement from command line

I'm using Host DLP to manage USB managed by EPO 4.6.3 build 197 with McAfee Agent


Are there any ways to force policy updates and trigger actions of the DLP agent via the command line or scripting?


We have a lot of agents reporting spurious agent statuses (Agent Up no policy/None) which don't actually apply on the machine, I have read the KB article that recommends running ASCI with

no user logged in and this has helped a bit but its very very slow really I would like to be able to just script something and get this done.


Any command line options for the DLP agent (either remote or locally executed would be nice)
